Dean Citroen e-C4 Hatchback 100kW Shine Plus 50kWh Auto

It is a very good city car and relaxing to drive. On country roads the handling is fine at lower speed but at higher speed the car is a little bit bouncy. Driving in Eco mode, the car is energy efficient and is perfect for summer but in cold weather conditions Normal mode is more suitable as the heating is not warm enough in Eco. Interior space is good but could be a problem for taller people especially at the back. Boot space is reasonable for this size car.
