Body Type = Hatchback
An incredibly popular type of a more compact passenger sedan both in the US with its Ford and GM models and just as much if not even more across the pond in Europe with its characteristically even smaller liftback sedan variant made almost by all European auto brands from Volkswagen to Fiat and Skoda. This is also probably the most popular type of a car for an all-electric EV market as it pretty much gets the best of all worlds - from a decent to high speed made more achievable for its smaller frame yet keeping 4 seats and typically enough to plenty of cargo space in the back or in place of the passenger seats for most casual city dwellers and occasional travelers.
Drive Train = RWD
Rear Wheel Drive or RWD means that the power of the car is driven from the rear of the car, or the rear motor/axle. The most common type of drive trains out there. Most suited for everyday driving, however, if you need to go off-road or live in areas with snow/gravel roads, look to the AWD, or all-wheel drive instead.

Citroen C-Zero 2020 Overview

What Separates Citroen C-Zero 2020

Being an old established brand it is there was no wonder that the range is all about trying to present decent specs while still a bit pricier as of now – though it is the most basic entry level option no doubt.

Not a top of the line yet a mid level thanks to its range still and in spite of somewhat good to decent specs and metrics across the board simply due to the small size and still average performance this make Citroen C-Zero 2020 edition a very an entry level option mostly for 1 to 2 passengers.

Still obviously to see how exactly good it is compared to other EVs on the market and other variants of cheaper tiers, it is crucial to see specific metrics. Based on that the comparison between the Citroen C-Zero 2020 edition differences with other upcoming variants in the range just as well as other EVs come down to acceleration, the electric range, charging time and additional minor ones looking pretty major nevertheless. Based on a direct comparison to the preceding hybrid variants specs this is a step up so major in terms of performance and power that it immediately catapults this bigger size SUV into a mid level option class among its size class EVs. Kind of very slow when compared to other EVs and range variants at 15,7 seconds getting from 0 to 6o miles – staying ways above the standard on the market by some good measure yet it has a cost disadvantage over it. Fortunately it stays above to what some other EV SUVs deliver it is in the neighbourhood of EPA certified electric range of somewhat mid level acceptable 56 miles. This variant definitely is limited to work home only.

Mentioning its charging capabilities this range does deliver a fairly quick result. It is capable of going from 0 to 100 percent in approximately 5 hours.

About The C-Zero
The Citroen C-Zero Range As soon as the Tesla brand made sure by its 2012 launch of the ever so successful Tesla Model S range that the personal use EV market is here to stay and is gonna be huge it was obvious that there will be a plenty of competion from big old established brands. Surely as one of the most established companies on the market Citroen was sure to start its own line and became one of the few brands truly trying to compete with the C-zero range. So unsurprisingly and similarly to how many big established brands also from Germany like Audi and BMW that decided to branch out its EV production and its ranges to include different car types from CUV hatchbacks to SUVs and sports cars, the Citroen C-Zero range will be pretty much all about the same car and size class carrying on being a supermini 2-door smallest size EV. As its performance is not very good at all compared to other EV ranges though based on the size this classifies it as an entry-level option for sure especially considering the price. Surely targeting both the newcomers to the EV market based on the car size and also EV owners looking for a second car, the Citroen C-Zero range is meant to be more of a personal use or a small personal car more than anything. Still it was the range that inserted and is keeping Citroenin the EV conversation. On top of that when surely being in the game of comp`eting with the market leader Tesla, it is crucial to compare the Citroen C-Zero range to that brand both in terms of specs and looks. So comparing how technically and technologically, not even mentioning comfort wise did this range get to Tesla it might be not a very close call as it lacks behind Model Y it somewhat resembles significantly. With its FWD with 2 or more motors depending on the specific variant of the range it is definitely most comparable to Tesla Model Y or Tesla Model 3 as a similar class-performance option. For sure we are not skipping the looks as well - we can say that just like Tesla yet with a less minimalistic and more of a budget smart approach, Citroen C-Zero has gone the more of a minimalistic route and made its range look more simplified and minimalistic. Its range has both a somewhat minimalistic futuristic body form as a sedan and a very minimalistic yet stylish interior finsh with some premium options. Aware of the fact that the looks and design are very important for any car range for sure, the specs and performance are truly everything. Based on just judging the Citroen C-Zero range on the merit of it specs and metrics, let's take a look at specs. Depending on the specific variant in the range it starting electric range and acceleration vary, as it starts o to 60 at incredibly slow even for its size class 15.7 seconds which is not the greatest at all yet works as an entry level spec for those who don't care about the speed too much. Unfortunately where it is kind of average to lackluster in terms of max speed or acceleration or other show-off features, it is not surpising and gaining in range to improve the impression. This tranlsates to when the journey has already begun, it will deliver you as far as the official EPA rated range of up to 56 mi without a single recharge. This sort of puts it into a work home commute only barring any long distancew traveling whatsoever. It easily can be categotized as somewhar lower priced than a few other smal sized EVs, which might make buyers or people new to the EV world ignore a lack of some things other similar ranges in or close to its size class like Tesla Model Y or Model 3 or other offer at a higher cost. Never forget to check out its multiple top features such as:
  • High-resolution touchscreen

  • Premium options for interior
  • Some cargo volume for its class
  • Driver-assistance features
that combined together make for a very satifsfying feeling when inside it on the road.
