Citroen C-Zero on show in Paris

Citroen C-Zero.

The exhibition, set up to show the latest ‘green’ technologies used by the marque, will include the C-Zero, Citroen’s first ever fully electric model, alongside other low-CO2 Citroen cars.

These will include the sub-100g/km DS3 and C3 city cars and the C3 Picasso, which was recently redesigned with more efficient and cleaner engines.

On the top floor of the exhibition is the latest electric concept from Citroen, the Survolt. First revealed at the Geneva Motor Show, the Survolt boasts motor racing-inspired design and low-CO2 emissions.

The star of the show, however, will be the C-Zero. The rebadged version of the Mitsubishi i-MiEV will arrive in the UK later this year along with the Peugeot i0n all-electric car.

The C-Zero can be charged using a household socket and an 80 per cent charge is possible in 30 minutes if a 400V supply is used. With a range of 80 miles, the C-Zero is designed for low emissions city driving.

At the C_42 event, Citroen will also introduce an eco-driving simulator called Ecogotchi, artwork from artist Francoise Nielly and a number of products and videos focusing on reducing the environmental impact of driving.
