Citroen is famous for building cars that don’t fit into conventional moulds. The e-C4, for example, combines traditional five-door hatchback practicality with the style of a coupe SUV, to create an excellent entry-level family car. Then there’s the Citroen C5 X plug-in hybrid. It’s an interesting cocktail as it mixes shots of estate and saloon car with one part SUV, creating an interesting alternative to a Volkswagen Arteon Shooting Brake eHybrid or a BMW 330e.

Now Citroen is combining these two genre-bending, but nevertheless appealing, models to create the e-C4 X. Bosses are proudly calling it the first all-electric model to launch in the UK and one that fuses the ‘elegant silhouette of a fastback with the modern look of an SUV’.

There are few surprises under the skin as the e-C4 X uses the same mechanicals as the e-C4. So that means it has either a 45kWh battery pack and 134bhp electric motor or a 154bhp motor and a 51kWh battry. Both have the ability to charge at up to 100kW on a DC rapid charger, meaning a 0-80% rapid charge will take around 30 minutes.

The e-C4 X can travel 222 miles with a full 45kWh battery, Citroen claims – three more miles than the regular e-C4, probably on account of its more slippery shape. Realistically, though, that 222 miles will be more like 200 in everyday driving, and in colder months or on motorway runs around 180 would be likely. The bigger battery and motor are more efficient; together with the extra cells it means the X stretches its official range to 260 miles.

Join Nicola as she takes a close look at the new Citroen e-C4X. Is this on your shortlist? Would you consider a saloon over a more traditional hatchback? Let us know in the comments below.
