Following on from its successful SUV offensive with the launch of C3 Aircross SUV and C5 Aircross SUV (300,000 and 200,000 sales respectively since their launches at the end of 2017), Citroën is ready for the next stage in the rollout of its product strategy, focusing firmly on the hatchback market.

New ë-C4 - 100% ëlectric and New C4 also represent a new design concept at the heart of its segment, with a unique and bold identity. With its elevated and assertive stance, the body shape combines the elegance and dynamism of a hatchback while subtly adopting certain SUV traits for added strength and character.
