Citroën C-ZERO Driven

it comes to alternative energy in the world there is a greater beginning to form. Some have developed and championed technology which combines two electric and internal combustion, in to extend fuel ranges and emissions. Other manufacturers in going down the route of purely electric vehicles and that technology is now good to make these vehicles a serious proposition for everyday

Citroën now have both of technologies in their range. On the front they have system in the DS5 which gives a range over its more sibling. But what I’m here to you about now is their all electric – the C-ZERO.

You might think to “that looks familiar”, and you be right. The C-ZERO uses the design that was first as the Mitsubishi iMiEV and now also as the Peugeot Ion. So what the C-ZERO apart from the

Well, I haven’t driven the so let’s just park for now, but I have driven the previously and it left me more a little disappointed.

Thankfully have fitted a far nicer that although retaining a lot of design to its Japanese cousin, far better. Bright colours and feeling materials make a big difference. What makes for better news is when you the key and discover that it appears to a decent range a full indicates a range of just 180 kms.

The dash itself is a simple affair with a power gauge which just how much power you are using along with a speedo mounted in the centre. Two dials either side the battery level, gear with the odometer and trip on the side.

Despite driven several electric it is still slightly bizarre to be met by silence when the ignition key is Engage D and the C-ZERO creeps without a sound. Acceleration the Citroën is quite perky and than capable of keeping up traffic.

Its 0-100 km/h is 15 seconds but does actually nippier than that. The motor produces only the of whirs at motorway speeds and as as you lift off the throttle it immediately to regenerate power back the 88 floor-mounted lithium-ion battery

By having its wheels pushed out to the corners of the car the C-ZERO develops a shape. It appears to have a long wheelbase yet can easily fit even the tightest of spots. is helped further by its waif-like although it does still a fair degree of room As I mentioned earlier, that is improved but remains sparse, no necessitated by its total reliance on power.

That said it do with having a slightly level of equipment given its price.

Living with an electric car the C-ZERO for a week gave me of opportunity to really put it to the test and see how an electric vehicle can really be. In day to day the Citroën is a very easy car to and being electric it only has one so even in very stop traffic things stay and serene.

Despite the C-ZERO’s improved I did still become a victim of anxiety on a couple of occasions meant having to spend bit longer considering and planning my in order to eliminate the chance of out of juice. Luckily for me there was a charge point at my local station and this allowed me to the car up in a much shorter space of I was also able to charge it at via the supplied charging cable conveniently plugs into a household three pin socket. that plugged in overnight charges the car in around 8 hours but owners would have a charging point installed at if they decided to purchase a

I might also add that I was to go for three days without the to plug the car in.

The C-Zero might not be the of cars but the tech underneath it work well in my opinion. The drawback for me remains the lack of and widespread infrastructure for electric but that is another days The C-ZERO definitely won me over and demonstrates that more can now give us a proper electric that can do much more just pop down to the shops.
