Citroën e-C4 wins cheaper trim levels for 2022

  • Two trim levels qualify for a plug-in car grant
  • e-C4 now goes further on a charge
  • Starts at £ 28,495

The Citroën e-C4 now starts from a much lower price, as Citroën has adjusted its pricing and introduced a new level of entry-level trim. The new Sense and Shine Edition versions join the lineup and are available for purchase now.

The Sense version replaces Sense Plus and is now eligible for the plug-in car subsidy. The Sense Plus versions started at £ 33,395, so you missed out on the new £ 32,000 maximum limit, but the new Sense version costs £ 29,995, and once the grant is applied you’ll pay £ 28,495. This means that the e-C4 is now cheaper than the Volkswagen ID.3 and the value-driven MG ZS EV, and it costs just £ 235 more than the smaller Peugeot e-208, with which it shares its powertrain.

The Sense trim also contains a lot of equipment. LED headlights, 18-inch alloy rims, parking sensors and a keyless entry / start system are all fitted. You also get dual-zone climate control and a 10-inch touchscreen with digital radio, Bluetooth, and Apple CarPlay / Android Auto connectivity.

Above is the new Shine Edition trim. For £ 2,000 more, it has a heated steering wheel, satellite navigation system, rearview camera and adjustable boot floor. The Shine Edition also adds additional safety features to the outgoing Shine finish, including adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring and a heads-up display.

Citroën claims the high-end Shine Plus finish is the current bestseller, although it is no longer eligible for the plug-in car subsidy. Opt for this version and additional equipment such as wireless phone charging and heated leatherette seats come into play.

Cars produced since October 2021 have an updated powertrain that features advancements to make it more efficient. A new heat pump and low rolling resistance tires are among the changes, which provide an additional 17 miles of range on a full charge.
