The new electric e-C4, which is being manufactured in Spain, will be the first Citroen model to have a fully electric version developed on the French group's new e-CMP platform, which it will share with the Opel Corsa-e, the Peugeot e-208 or the DS3 Crossback e-Tense.

With this announcement Citroen has also confirmed the official name for the model as e-C4. Compared to the current C4, the vehicle should have a longer wheelbase.

The e-C4 could inherit the same powertrain from some of the group's other electric models. The 100 kW (134 hp) electric motor can produce 260 Nm of maximum torque powered by a 50 kWh lithium-ion battery pack. As for range between recharges, the new Citroen e-c4 could cover up to 310 kilometres according to the WLTP cycle.

The Citroen e-C4 will be the electric avatar of the C4 models currently in market. The C4 is sold with an internal combustion engine, but the electric model will be different in looks as well as powertrain. According to Citroen boss Vincent Cobee, “Bring a new look to the segment." There are already photos of the Citroen e-C4 released which show the vehicle with a curved roof line.

The rivals that this new Citroen e-C4 electric will face are either already on the market, as is the case with the Nissan Leaf or the Hyundai Ioniq or are close to coming, like the Volkswagen ID.3 or the Volkswagen ID.4 electric cars.

The Citroen e-C4 is part of the Group's electric models integrated into  PSA's 'Push To Pass' plan, which in 2025 will have a catalog with 40 electric cars integrated into its five brands.
