One of the most elegant new releases of recent times is the Citroën C4 X. A gentle touch of the former avant-garde can be discerned, the Citroën is definitely not mainstream. In France, the brand opened the order books and announced prices last week. Both combustion engines and a purely electric version can be ordered.
In Germany, however, there should only be the electric ë-C4 X. There seem to be obvious reasons for this decision.
Germany is the country for Citroën electric cars
Because the C4, the somewhat more conventional derivative of the Citroën middle class, obviously sells a lot better as an electric car in Germany than the combustion models. According to Citroën Germany, 65% of customers opt for the electric drive, only every third new C4 relies on the traditional combustion engine.
With the ë-C4 X, which is aimed a little more in the direction of design and avant-garde than the variants without the big X, the calculation could also work out.
In France, however, the C4 X is available from €27.650,00 as a 100 hp petrol engine. Another petrol engine with 136 hp is optionally available in the lists, as is an equally powerful diesel. Purely electrically, it also remains at a maximum of 136 hp and a range of 360 kilometers according to WLTP.
It is interesting that Citroën is keeping a respectful distance from the Nobel offshoot DS. The new DS 3 has access to the more modern technology package, it is more powerful with 156 hp, drives further and is of course also more expensive.
However, Citroën's mission is affordable mobility for everyone. That's why the ë-C4 X and C4 X deliver a portion of utility in the form of a large, 510-litre boot. In the opinion of the editors, the tailgate alone is missing for the complete happiness of the Gallic hatchback.
Always, electric and also with the combustion engine, the brand spoils the passengers with the incredible Advanced Comfort seats and the wonderful Advanced Comfort suspension.
Prices for the ë-C4 X in France
For interested parties, it is worth taking a look at the prices for the new ë-C4 X. The price list in France can only be compared with possible German prices with reservations, but gives an approximate idea of what will also be called up here. For better comparability, you have to deduct the premium for electric cars of €5.000 (2023).
The ë-C4 X starts with the "Feel" equipment at €39.950 including local taxes, the high-quality "Shine" equipment is listed at €42.350, and the "Shine Pack" costs €43.450.
As premium equipment, the “Shine Pack” leaves almost nothing to be desired. The package includes, among other things, semi-autonomous driving according to level 2 and Alcantara equipment. All other features that you might also like to pack in an ë-C4 X are provided in advance by the "Shine" equipment, which also includes a colored head-up display, intelligent Smart Pad support, and "My Citroën Drive Plus" of the includes last generation.
If you compare prices and equipment with the offers of the market companions, then the ë-C4 priced interesting. She gives a pinch more of style and individuality under the double angle free of charge. For those who would like to know more about it now, we have the French one Price list deposited.
The C4 X family will not be making its way into dealer showrooms until the beginning of next year. Then Germany's latest Citroën contribution will also be available.
