Linda Jackson, Citroën UK’s Managing Director, commented; “We are delighted that our environmentally-considerate C-ZERO has been recognised for the £5,000 grant. A comfortable, economical and practical mode of transport for town and city drivers, C-ZERO is one of the first truly viable solutions for the future of urban motoring. We look forward to its arrival on our roads early next year.”
The C-ZERO is designed to make battery-powered urban mobility easy for customers, with compact dimensions, rapid battery charge and sufficient range (up to 93miles) for the majority of day-to-day car journeys. A high level specification and comfort enhancing features ensure users enjoy the economic benefits of electric power without losing the equipment of conventionally powered vehicles.
With enjoyable performance and handling, the C-ZERO also delivers impressively low running costs – a full re-charge costs approximately £1.50. Other financial benefits include free VED and free parking in a number of UK locations. As a full-electric vehicle, C-ZERO also qualifies for a 100% discount against the London Congestion Charge from 4th January 2011. Drivers could save around £2,500 a year based on 250 working days at the new £10 day rate
