C-ZERO, Citroën's new all-electric four-seater city car, is to make its world show premiere at the 88th European Motor Show in Brussels later this month - alongside 25 other models from Citroën's award-winning range.

Zero fuel consumption, zero CO2 emissions and zero engine noise - the aptly named C-ZERO is Citroën's 100% electric solution to meet the demands of modern day urban driving. With compact dimensions, rapid charge and generous range for day-to-day car journeys, C-ZERO is a perfect city companion.

C-ZERO's permanent magnet synchronous motor is powered by a latest-generation lithium-ion battery system and delivers 47kW or 64bhp EEC from 3,000 to 6,000rpm. Maximum torque of 180Nm is available from 0 to 2,000rpm. The batteries can either be charged by plugging the supply cord into a 220-volt socket or, alternatively, C-ZERO can be charged using a 400-volt supply for an 80% charge in 30 minutes.

Despite measuring just 3.48m long, C-ZERO offers a spacious and comfortable cabin interior with four real seats and a 166 litre boot. On the road, C-ZERO has a top speed of 80mph, acceleration from 0-62mph in 15 seconds and a range of around 80 miles over a standard combined cycle. C-ZERO's 9m turning circle and nimble handling also make it easy to navigate through city traffic.
