Every version of the new Citroen e-C4 EV will be eligible for the revised Plug-in Car Grant after the firm lowered prices of the range-topping cars
Citroen has lowered prices of range-topping variants of its new e-C4 EV to ensure that every version on sale still qualifies for the government Plug-in Car Grant.
The price cap for the PiCG was recently cut from £50k to £35k – and Citroen has followed by reducing prices by £550 on the best-selling e-C4 Shine Plus to dip in below this barrier.
Prices now range from £30,895 to £32,495, including the Plug-in Car Grant.
“We were disappointed to hear the news that the support for consumers to make the switch to a low emission vehicle has been reduced,” said Citroen UK MD Eurig Druce.
“For this period of transition to be a success and for electrification targets to be met, both the industry and consumers need clearer long-term guidance and support on how we will get there.
“That said, I am proud that Citroen UK’s policy of ‘Fair Pricing’ ensures that consumer will continue to be able to benefit from the full government Plug-in Car Grant.”
Citroen adds that all retail e-C4 buyers will benefit from both a free five-year warranty and a free 7kW Pod Point home charger – saving them a further £509.
