The French electric hatchback was presented during a specially organized presentation. In Paris, the electric car was presented to the brand’s management, while 2.5 thousand journalists watched the presentation remotely.

Citroen has unveiled the Y-C4 electric cross-hatchback. This electric car is based on the universal modular platform CMP of the PSA concern. This “cart” can be used to create cars with traditional motors, hybrids and electric vehicles.

The electric novelty is a stylish raised hatchback with a drop-top roof that is fashionable today. Also, the electric car got large wheels (16-18 inches), a rich list of electronic driving assistants (about 20) and a level 2 semi-autonomous driving system.

A 136-horsepower electric motor is responsible for the performance of the Citroen Y-C4. To help him, the manufacturer selected a lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 50 kW • h.

The hatchback will accelerate to “hundreds” in 9.7 seconds (the electric car shows this result in Sport mode). The maximum speed of the novelty was set at around 150 km / h. Without recharging, the electric car will cover about 350 kilometers.
The electric C4 is known to support several charging modes – one of which is “fast”. With it, you can recharge the electro hatch up to 80% in just half an hour. On the European market, sales of new items will begin in September. But in our country, a new electric car from Citroen should not be expected.

Earlier, AutoTimesNews said that the German auto concern Daimler will increase the range of its electric cars to 700 km. The new main battery supplier – the Chinese company CATL – will help the emu in this. The corresponding partnership agreement has already been signed.
