Citroën has partnered with Onto, the all-inclusive electric car subscription service, to provide a fleet of 300 new ë-C4 100 percent electric vehicles (EVs). The zero emissions cars, which will be in the range-topping ‘Shine Plus’ specification will be available to Onto customers from October 2021.
Onto was founded in 2017 to accelerate electric vehicle adoption and offering a sustainable, flexible and affordable alternative to traditional car ownership. The service now has more than 3,000 active subscribers and they will soon be able to gain access to the New Citroën ë-C4 through the Onto scheme.
Through a monthly subscription, customers can drive get the latest electric cars with insurance, 1000 miles (1610km) per month, servicing and maintenance, and charging at over 11,000 points all included. This does away with the large outlay of having to purchase outright and makes driving electric more accessible than ever.
The new Citroën ë-C4 forms part of the electrification strategy for the Citroën brand, where it will provide electrified variants across each model in the range by 2025. This compact hatchback features a 50kWh lithium-ion battery pack paired with an electric motor producing 136 horsepower and 260Nm of torque.
The electric powertrain delivers a range of up to 217-miles (350km) and supports CCS rapid charging, which comes as standard on all models. This enables an 80 percent charge in as little as 30 minutes using a 100kW rapid charger.
Rob Jolly, Onto CEO and co-founder, said: “Citroën is a fantastic brand and we’re delighted to be able to offer their New ë-C4 to our customers. Citroen’s strategy to provide an electric model of each car they manufacture is a great step for the EV industry.
“We love to offer our customers flexibility and choice when it comes to choosing their car and we’re excited to bring this new model on board – one that we’re certain will be a popular addition.”
