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. It’s no longer in production, but you can get them second hand.
It was actually made by Mitsubishi and rebadged by Citroen as the C-Zero. There was 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
When it was still in production, it used to cost about £17,000, including the PiCG grant.
At the time, that made it the cheapest EV in the UK, along with the iOn.
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, a second hand one would be 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.
