Award-Winning Citroens Get The EV Treatment

Wed 7th Jun 2023

Citroën UK has introduced a new ë-Series line-up for its electrified C-segment models, offering more style, technology, and recycled materials. 

The new trims include the ë-C4, ë-C4 X, and electrified C5 Aircross models, all featuring key design elements like a Perla Nera Black bi-tone roof and black alloy wheels. The ë-Series models come with the new My Citroën Drive Plus infotainment system, keyless start, heated front seats, and upgraded Citroën HiFi system.The C5 Aircross ë-Series editions also include Highway Driver Assist, an opening panoramic glass sunroof, and heated front seats. The 225 Plug-in Hybrid powertrain and the Hybrid 136 combine a 136hp PureTech petrol engine with 48V battery technology, reducing CO2 emissions by up to 15%.

The ë-Series line-up creates a prestigious, elegant, and dynamic look across all three models. The ë-Series range features a new Perla Nera Black roof, a bi-tone design on the C4 and C5 Aircross models, giving the car a dynamic appearance. Full-black alloy wheels are available on ë-C4 and ë-C4 X, while C5 Aircross Hybrid and Plug-in Hybrid ë-Series variants have 19-inch 'Art' black alloy wheels. The optional Pearl White body color and black roof are the signature look of the new ë-Series collection. Citroën's Dark Chrome colour pack is exclusive to ë-Series on ë-C4 and ë-C4 X, while all ë-Series variants have an "ë-Series" monogram at the rear.

The light interior ambience creates a soothing atmosphere and enhances cabin space, promoting relaxation and well-being. The C5 Aircross ë-Series trim offers a striking interior ambience with light grey seats, backrests, and armrests, complemented by medium grey on the seat edge, contours, upper backrest, headrests, and central and door armrests. The horizontal seat upholstery design reinforces width and coherence in the passenger compartment. The interior features 'bubble panels' and a herringbone pattern on the upper part of the seat, while 'ë' labels on the inside of the front seats complete the look. 

For a more dynamic and darker interior, the C5 Aircross ë-Series trim offers Alcantara® seats in the existing dark ambience. The new warm and responsible Alcantara® Upholstery Ë-Series versions use quality materials like Alcantara® for the seat, backrest, and armrests, providing better support and comfort.

The French brand will be hoping that the e-series can follow on from the success of the combustion engines, particularly as the C5 Aircross was named What Car? Car of the Year in 2022.
