Why did you choose the Citroen e-C4?

We felt that due to all the changes coming in it was the best way to go and we are glad we went full EV. We were frightened at first but since getting the car in December I worry less as I can plan my long journeys with Zap-Map and life is now a joy with the Citroen e-C4. It is lovely and quiet to drive, very comfortable, good on the mileage per charge and it’s already working out cheaper than our diesel car.

 

The Citroen dealer let us have the car for 1/2 day on the test drive which was great. The vehicle has plenty of gadgets, it’s the top-of-the-range Shine+ model. I would never go back to a fossil fuel car again, the experience of an electric car gets better every day you drive it. EVs will only improve as time goes on, but I’m now hooked and don’t look back.

Have you experienced any faults with the car? If so, what have they been?

Nothing it’s been perfect in everything.

 

What are the standout tech features of your Citroen e-C4?

Preconditioning so you never ever get into a frosty and cold car. The sat nav is fast also the passenger’s tablet holder is a great touch, makes life much easier for use. I love the pop-up screen with all the information shown on it. So far everything has been easy to use and the voice activity is also great.

I like everything about the Citroen e-C4 and it’s a very underrated car. I’ve enjoyed everything about the car, it gets many looks and positive comments in car parks including lots of EV-related questions.

What home electricity supplier & tariff do you use? Would you recommend it to others and why?

We have Shell and charge overnight. Can’t recommend anybody due to what’s going on in the world at the time of writing this. Our average charge is £3.56. I’m happy with this.

What public charging networks would you recommend to others and why?

I find the ones I have used are fine: bp pulse, Pod Point and Shell.  I only use 50kW charges when on long journeys as they’re very quick for a full charge; they cost a bit more but well worth it. Most of the charge points are very easy to use.

 

List your top 3 favourite public charging networks (in order of preference).

It’s too early to say as I don’t use them on a regular basis. However, I do like bp pulse as they are always clean and tidy and all working when I have used them.

 

Who do you insure your electric car with? Would you recommend them to others and why?

RSA – it’s up to the individual to make that choice. I’m very happy with them.
