The Citroen C-Zero is a dinky city car for 4 people
Introduction to the Citroen C-Zero
The Citroen C-Zero is a 5-door, 4-seat electric car.
However, it’s actually made by Mitsubishi and rebadged by Citroen as the C-Zero. There’s even another rebadged version made by Peugeot called the iOn. All these versions look almost identical, too. It’s a bit confusing.
- Easy to park around town
- Limited range

Citroen C-Zero – Range
This Citroen electric car has a 16 kWh battery which gives it a real world range of approximately 70 miles.
Citroen C-Zero – Price
It costs from £17,020, including the PiCG grant.
That makes it the cheapest EV in the UK, along with the iOn. If you buy a second hand one, you might well pick up a real bargain.
The design is not as slick as more recent electric vehicles, but, if you are not concerned about aesthetics, and don’t need the latest technology, it’s a cost-effective route into the EV world.
Who is the Citroen C-Zero for?
This is a Citroen zero emission electric car. It has a sufficiently large battery and range to get you around town with ease.
It goes from 0 to 62 mph in 15.9 seconds. That’s pretty slow by EV standards, but fine for normal city driving.
The C-Zero’s electric motor gives it a top speed of 81 mph for this rear-wheel drive electric car.
It has rapid charging capabilities up to 40 kW via a CHAdeMO connector, which means you can go on longer trips, if required.
It can ferry 4 people around town in relative comfort. Like the iOn, it’s not the most advanced electric car, but it does what it’s designed to do well.
