The electric version, the E-C4 is due to be unveiled in full at the end of the month, the e-C4 bridges the gap between a family hatchback and full crossover. It follows the current Citroën design language of luxury lines and bold front-end styling. Passenger comfort will take priority over any notion of a sporty driving experience. Expect absorbent seats and the brand’s hydraulic bump-stop suspension, which is designed to prevent the worst bumps from disrupting the quality of the ride.
