Citroen Electric Vehicles

Why go electric?

The future of motoring is here and it’s electric. And, with the range of new electric and hybrid models from Citroën, it’s easy to make the change.

Citroën electric vehicles

With the UK government looking for uptake of electric vehicles to be complete no later than 2035, there’s never been a better time to switch. Among the Citroën lineup of vehicles embracing this change, you will find some of the most innovative and capable technology around.

Benefits of Buying Electric

It’s not only that the UK government is looking to ban the sale of petrol and diesel-powered vehicles by 2035 that you should look to switch to electric motoring - there are myriad benefits available to you too. At present, those investing in such a model are able to take advantage of grants to help fund their purchase, with these benefits going towards the vehicle price and the cost of home charging solutions. In addition, you will be able to take advantage of improved running costs, lower road tax, and even more cost-effective maintenance charges. And, of course, you will be playing your part in reducing harmful CO2 emissions.

  • More cost-effective running costs
  • Cleaner and greener performance
  • Nationwide charging points
  • Government grants for purchasing

Types of Electric/Hybrid Vehicles Explained

Everything you wanted to know about hybrid and fully electric cars explained.

All Electric Powered solely by a battery motor, all electric vehicles are entirely emissions free and offer great performance as standard. They can be charged at home or at any of the UK’s many public charging stations.
Hybrid Hybrid vehicles combine a battery powered motor with a traditional fuel combustion engine, often complementing performance with added power and capability. The battery does not require plugging in to charge.
Plug In Hybrid As the name suggests, plug-in hybrid models require the vehicle to be charged at home or in public. They are often able to provide a range of all-electric motoring that is more than enough for daily commutes.

An electric car has a similar servicing schedule to a traditional petrol or diesel model. This will be advised in your vehicle’s handbook.
