Citroën e-C4 Hatchback rivals

Written by James Fossdyke on

The e-C4 is the electric alternative to the ‘standard’ petrol- and diesel-engined C4 models that represent Citroen’s idea of a family car. Unlike the hatchbacks with which the C4 and e-C4 are designed to compete, the Citroens have a raised ride height and sharp styling that helps to set them apart.

Citroen has always liked to do things differently, and the e-C4 is definitely unlike anything else on the market. Its key rivals are the slightly smaller Volkswagen ID.3 and the Nissan Leaf, but the e-C4’s height means parallels will always be drawn with the likes of the Kia e-Niro, Vauxhall Mokka-e and Peugeot e-2008.

Alongside those SUVs, the e-C4 looks like a case of style over substance, but the emphasis on comfort and the eye-catching exterior design will win it plenty of fans. The only catch is a slightly underwhelming range that makes it less well suited to long journeys.

That said, Citroen also sells this car with petrol and diesel engines, so perhaps the company is trying not to tread on its own toes with this electric model. Either way, the e-C4 is going to be the more interesting proposition for company car drivers and the eco-conscious.

Over the next few pages, we’ll be reviewing all aspects of the Citroen e-C4 thoroughly and rating them in our verdict. Our scores will look at the driving experience, how pleasant the interior is, the practicality on offer and what it’ll cost you to run.
