New limited edition ‘Electro Shot’ for Citroen DS4

Citroen DS4.

The stylish DS4 family car has been on sale since summer 2011; its new limited edition specification is based on the existing mid-range DStyle trim. The Electro Shot follows other limited edition models sold for the Citroen DS4, which have previously included the sportier DS4 Racing and the more premium-focused DS4 Pure Pearl.

Citroen has confirmed the new DS4 Electro Shot will introduce a classic two-tone finish which is found on other models amongst the manufacturer’s DS line range.

The Electro Shot will sport a gloss black roof and spoiler, and black painted 17-inch alloy wheels. The updated exterior also features chrome-finished door mirrors as a new addition.

The DS4 Electro Shot represents the first Citroen model to be produced by the company’s new customisation workshop at the Mulhouse production site in France. This workshop is run by body specialists to satisfy the expectations of DS customers looking for a unique, high-quality product with a high level of customised content.

More details, including information on engines and pricing range, will likely be given by Citroen when the DS4 Electro Shot is presented to the public during the 2013 Geneva Motor Show on 5 March.

The standard Citroen DS4 range is available now from £18,150 and can be bought from Perrys Citroen Dealerships based in Barnsley, Huddersfield and Milton Keynes.

The DS4 is loosely based on the Citroen C4 hatchback but stands out further with its more modern design which includes a raised ground height, distinctive DS trademarks to the front end and interior plus higher levels of equipment.

The current engine range for the Citroen DS4, which also has a five-star Euro NCAP safety rating, includes 110bhp 1.6-litre HDi and e-HDi diesel units.

The DS4 is also available with a 120bhp 1.6-litre VTi petrol unit, a 160bhp 2.0-litre HDi diesel and a 1.6-litre THP petrol engine which can produce 155bhp in the DStyle specification or 200bhp in the range-topping DSport form. The most efficient engine option is the 1.6-litre HDi diesel with CO2 emissions ranging from just 114g/km to 122g/km.

Standard equipment for the Citroen DS4 in the basic DSign trim includes air conditioning, cruise control and heated mirrors.
