Citroen's new e-C4 X is a stylish and comfortable electric car perfect for those looking for a practical and affordable EV. The e-C4 X is ideal for commuting and longer journeys and has a spacious interior and plenty of boot space.
Our Citroen e-C4 X review covers:
The e-C4 X is a stylish and modern car that takes design cues from the larger C5 X. It has a sleek and aerodynamic silhouette, with a long wheelbase and a sloping roofline. The front end is dominated by the new Citroën chevron grille, which is flanked by stylish LED headlights. The rear end features a distinctive light signature that runs across the width of the boot lid.
The interior of the e-C4 X is just as stylish as the exterior. A 10-inch touchscreen display dominates the dashboard, and there are plenty of soft-touch materials used throughout the cabin. The Advanced Comfort seats are designed to provide exceptional comfort and support, and there's plenty of legroom and headroom in both the front and rear.
The e-C4 X is a practical car that's perfect for everyday use. The boot is very spacious, with a volume of 510 litres. This is more than enough space for luggage for a family of four on a weekend trip. The 60:40 split-folding rear seats can also be folded down to increase boot space to 1,250 litres.
The Citroën ë-C4 X Electric has a spacious and stylish interior that is designed to provide comfort and relaxation for all occupants.

Three trim levels are available: You, Max and E-Series.
The base trim level, named You!, comes equipped with standard features such as rear parking sensors, dual-zone air conditioning, a leather steering wheel, tinted side windows, 18-inch alloys, speed limiter, cruise control, and a Standard Safety Pack. This safety pack includes active safety brake, speed limit information, lane-keeping assist, driver attention alert with lane departure detection, and forward collision warning.
Opting for the Max trim level provides buyers with additional features like front, rear, and lateral parking sensors, a reversing camera, driver's head-up display, keyless entry and start, blind spot detection, a 10-inch touchscreen, USB Type A and Type C sockets, and tinted rear windows, quarterlights, and rear windscreen.
For those choosing the ë-series trim, exclusive additions include wireless smartphone charging, an upgraded audio system, a Dark Chrome colour pack, a heated steering wheel, adaptive cruise control, and a Highway Driver Assist and Safety Pack Plus. This pack incorporates advanced active safety brake, speed limit, and extended traffic sign recognition, along with a driver attention alert featuring lane departure detection and forward collision warning.
The Citroen e-C4 X is powered by a 100 kW (136 hp) electric motor that produces 260 Nm of torque. The motor provides smooth and responsive acceleration, taking the car from 0 to 62 mph in 9.5 seconds. The car has a top speed of 93 mph.
The e-C4 X has a range of up to 222 miles (358 km) on a single charge, according to the WLTP cycle. This range is more than enough for most daily commutes and longer journeys. The car also comes with a fast-charging option, which means you can top up the battery in around 30 minutes.
The Citroën ë-C4 X Electric has three driving modes. Eco is designed to maximise range by reducing the power output of the motor. Normal, this is the default mode, and it provides a balance of performance and range. Sport, this mode provides the most performance, but it also reduces range. The driver can select the desired driving mode using a button on the centre console.
The Citroën ë-C4 X Electric has a comfortable and compliant ride. The suspension is well-damped, and it does a good job of soaking up bumps and potholes. The car also handles well, and it feels stable and planted on the road.
Overall, the Citroen e-C4 X is a powerful and efficient electric car that is also fun to drive. The car's three driving modes allow the driver to select the best settings for their needs, and the comfortable ride and handling make the car a great choice for long journeys.
