The new Citroen e-C3 has been named ‘Car of the Year’ at the 2024 Company Car & Van Awards, beating rivals such as the MG 4, the BYD Dolphin, and the Mazda MX-30. The award recognizes the best vehicles for business users, based on criteria such as value, performance, efficiency, and practicality. So, what makes the e-C3 so great? Here are some of the reasons why the judges were impressed by this small electric car.
Rugged design and spacious interior
The e-C3 is the first model to display Citroen’s new design language and logo, which were previewed by the Citroen Oli Concept in 2022. The e-C3 features a tall, boxy design, slim LED headlights, chunky wheel arch cladding, and roof rails. The result is a look that’s more reminiscent of a small SUV than a small hatchback, giving the e-C3 a distinctive and robust appearance.
The Citroen e-C3 electric car also offers a spacious and comfortable interior, with plenty of room for five passengers and their luggage. The boot capacity is 300 liters, which can be expanded to 1,000 liters by folding the rear seats. The dashboard consists of a stepped design, with a digital driver’s display on top of the dashboard and a 10.25-inch infotainment screen (optional on the entry-level version) in the center. The dashboard also features colored detailing and fabric inserts, adding some flair to the cabin. The e-C3 also comes with various features to enhance the driving experience, such as wireless charging, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a reversing camera, and a head-up display.
