- The new Citroen e-C3 took the top prize at the recent award ceremony.
- It was praised by judges for its impressive range and affordability.
- Citroen is on a mission to make efficient mobility accessible to all.
Citroen’s upcoming all-electric compact car, the e-C3, has been crowned ‘Car of the Year’ at the 2024 Company Car and Van Awards.
The vehicle was praised for its excellent range and affordable pricing. These features make it a strong option for individuals looking to make the switch to electric for less.
The new e-C3 signifies the beginning of a new dawn for Citroen, who are dedicated to making ‘clean’ mobility accessible to all. The new model is set to go on sale later in 2024.
Greg Taylor, Managing Director, Citroen UK, said: “We are delighted the new e-C3 has been named ‘Car of the Year’ at the 2024 Company Car & Van Awards. Offering affordable mobility has always been at the heart of Citroen, and we are determined to make the transition to electric vehicles accessible to as many people as possible. New e-C3 is a testament to this. It will offer drivers a comfortable, and extremely affordable EV option. I’m thrilled by the reaction for new e-C3 already and am looking forward to seeing drivers enjoying it on UK roads in 2024.”
The impressive vehicle features a 44kWh battery which provides a fantastic range of 199 miles (WLTP). Compatibility with 100kW rapid charging means a 20-80% battery top-up will take just 26 minutes. These factors make it a genuinely practical choice in the world of electric cars.
The e-C3 offers next-level comfort, thanks to Citroen’s Advanced Comfort Programme. Enhanced suspension and seats make for enjoyable and easy-going electric journeys. It also comes with a generous amount of equipment as standard, including the latest infotainment and safety systems. All these factors combine to highlight the e-C3's exceptional value for money.
Andrew Walker, Editor & Publisher, Company Car & Van, said: “For the first time ever we've selected a car that we've not yet driven as our Car of the Year. ‘How can that possibly be?’ I hear you cry. Simple. It will cost just under £23,000, will offer a 199-mile electric range and comes with 100kW charging. If we are to get more people into an electric car, then the new Citroen e-C3 is the most compelling argument for an electric car yet. Our Car of the Year.”
The new e-C3 will go on sale later this year, with Entry level ‘YOU!’ trims starting from under £23,000.
