Citroen C-Zero stars in green motor show
French automaker Citroen will appear at the 2011 EcoVelocity motor show in September, where it will present a range of green cars including the purely electric C-Zero.
Held at Battersea Power Station, the show will allow the public to drive three of the six models which Citroen will have on display. Joining the C-Zero in the company’s line up will be micro-hybrid e-HDi versions of the Citroen DS3, DS4 and new C4.
Citroen UK Managing Director, Linda Jackson, said: ‘Citroen is focused on improving fuel economy and lowering emissions right across our range, as well as encouraging motorists to make environmentally conscious driving decisions’.
‘With concept cars like Survolt showcasing future potential for eco-technologies in motorsports, and the zero-emissions C-Zero providing a practical solution for ‘green’ city driving today, we feel Citroen is taking the right steps’.
‘We’re delighted to be taking part in EcoVelocity, an event that helps to highlight the importance of driving cleaner, greener cars in our urban environments’.
The Citroen C-Zero, which will be available to drive at the auto show, is the French manufacturer’s first production electric car to go on sale.
The four-door city car is run on a 47kW battery which offers a travelling range of up to 93 miles. It emits zero carbon emissions, making it exempt from the London congestion charge.
The C-Zero is available to own in the UK now on a four year, 40,000 mile monthly payment contract costing £415 excluding VAT.
Vistiors of the EcoVelocity motor show can sample the electric car on all days it is running, between 8 and 11 September.
