Citroën has starting taking UK orders for its new all-electric ë-C4 X saloon, powered by a 100kW powertrain that can travel a reported 222 miles from full charge.

Marketed as Citroën’s first ever electric-only range to go on sale in the UK, this new saloon line-up is now available to order with three trim levels to choose from.

All models sit on 18-inch alloy wheels, and come with the brand’s ‘advanced comfort’ seats, which are designed with more padding and lumbar support for ‘optimal driving comfort’. Keyless entry is also standard, as is a 10-inch infotainment screen that is compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

Upgrading to the mid-range ‘Shine’ package gives this infotainment system voice command functionality, and also adds a head-up display that projects driving information onto the windscreen. This trim level includes a rear view parking camera, as well as a heated steering wheel.

Heated front seats are reserved for the range-topping ‘Shine Plus’ grade, which is trimmed in alcantara leather. Building on the safety assistance features of cheaper models, the ‘Shine Plus’ also comes with adaptive cruise control.

Charging this battery using a 7kW wallbox at home is said to take around seven and a half hours, and the manufacturer adds that it takes 30 minutes to charge the car from 0% to 80% using a 100kW rapid charging point.

At close to five metres long, the ë-C4 X offers 510 litres of boot space – over a 100 litres more than the closely-related ë-C4 provides.
