CITROEN C-Zero reviewNGC verdict 16.06.2011
Both the C-Zero and the Peugeot iOn are essentially Mitsubishi i-MiEVs wearing Citroen badges – the pioneering trio were really the first mass produced electric vehicles available in the UK that are not classed as quadricycles. The three models use the same drivetrain and the body work is almost identical, but the interiors vary slightly from one to another.
The C-Zero can be bought outright for £28,155 (including the £5,000 Government grant) or leased over 4 years for £415 monthly. These prices may be off-putting, but once paid for, running costs are particularly low. Like most new EVs, the C-Zero is well equipped and smooth to drive with tax and Congestion Charge exemption.
