Citroën C4 electric: More power for 2024!

Since its launch, the Citroën C4 has benefited from a 100% electric motor, in addition to thermal, diesel and petrol engines. With 136 hp and an announced range of 360 km, the C4 was a convincing proposition, which became even more so with a new 156 hp engine and a revised battery that increased the range to over 400 km. Today, the ë-C4 undergoes a new small evolution that gives it additional power in certain driving modes.

When it was launched in 2023, the C4's new 156 bhp electric engine offered better driving comfort and more powerful performance. However, this increased power was only available in the Sport mode, the other two modes, Eco and Normal, did not benefit from the improvements and continued to offer the same power as the 136 hp engine, namely 60 kW (82 hp) in Eco mode and 80 kW (109 hp) in Normal mode.


However, the Citroën ë-C4 156 has undergone a subtle technical evolution in recent weeks, allowing it to offer more power in both Eco and Normal modes, while the Sport mode remains at the 156 hp already offered. Thus the power of the modes is now 80 kW (109 hp) in Eco mode and 100 kW (136 hp) in Normal mode, which should improve it in terms of driving dynamics, with Sport mode reducing the autonomy. is not the most used. It is therefore a relatively significant gain for the electric Citroën C4 in the most used driving modes, Normal and Eco, both of which gain around 20 hp and should give the C4 more dynamism in everyday use.


Good news never comes alone, and Citroën has made it clear that all Citroën C4 electric vehicles equipped with the 156 hp engine produced from the outset are compatible with this increase in power, simply requiring a visit to the workshop to update the engine software. This is therefore a real plus for all current and future customers of the 156 hp version, who will be able to benefit from an increase in power that can really be used on a daily basis. The additional 20 hp will not turn the C4 into a sports saloon, that is not its vocation, but should allow better acceleration and therefore gains in autonomy, helping to make the C4 one of the most compact and economical electric saloons in its segment.
