Frequently Asked Questions

So that Citroen's electric or Plug-in hybrids hold no secrets for you

Questions about electric vehicles

From range to charging and the installation of an electric charge point in your home, Citroën provides all the answers to common questions about electricity.  

Frequently Asked Questions - Electric Vehicles

Similar to an internal combustion-engine vehicle, the consumption information for an electric vehicle is located next to the speedometer. Range is calculated in real time, and takes into account your driving style and other factors.

However, there are a few things to note: for a plug-in hybrid vehicle, a blue light on the rear-view mirror informs you when you are in 100% electric mode. In addition, your display shows the electric range on one side, and your fuel range on the other. To check your vehicle's charge status remotely, the My Citroën application is an essential tool.

The range of your electric vehicle depends on your driving and the load you're carrying, the gradient of the road and your use of air conditioning or heating.  In terms of figures, the C5 Aircross Plug-in SUV Hybrid has a 100% electric range of 31 miles under the WLTP standard. For vehicles in the 100% electric range such as New ë-C4 or ë-Dispatch, the range goes up to 205 miles in WLTP mode.

For Citroën, the plug-in hybrid is the union of electric and combustion. Enjoy the comfort and performance of the 100% electric mode, without giving up your desire for adventure. Depending on the distance, the internal combustion engine automatically takes over.

Rest assured, there are many charging options! Whether at home, in the office or on the road, you will never be caught short.  At home, you can get a charging point installed, taking advantage of a government grant to reduce the cost.  There's also funding available to companies, so your employer may choose to install charging points at your workplace.

During a journey, public charging can be found in many locations to keep you on the move. is the best place to research public charging across the UK.

The charging time depends on the type of charging point you use. There are several types of charge points, both domestic and public, with several power levels. Find all the information you need on the dedicated vehicle pages, but also in the downloadable technical specifications. 

If you live in shared residence without a dedicated driverway which you own, it can be tricky to get a charging point installed.  Citroën recommends that you speak to our charging partner Pod Point, who can offer guidance in this area.

The answer is yes! You can program deferred charging and set the temperature of your passenger compartment. Manage it from your smartphone through the MyCitroën app and e-Remote Control service.

Yes, most insurers offer policies for electric vehicles.

The My Citroën app is available on Android and iOS. To register, you'll need your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to hand, which can be found on your vehicle windscreen or your registration document.  Pair your vehicle with the app to take advantage of all the features inclusing Citroën connected services. 

This is fully dependent on where you charge and the cost of your electricity. Some public chargepoints are completely free, whereas others have variable charges. You can also install a chargepoint at home and pay for the electricity you use to charge.

Electricity is priced by kWh (kilowatt per hour) - so for a full battery charge you multiply the price per kWh by the capacity of the battery (in the same way today you would multiply the price per gallon, by the fuel tank capacity).

Many energy companies are now offering ‘electric vehicle tariffs’ where charging at certain times is cheaper. Citroën make this easy for you to manage, from either the vehicle or through downloading the MyCitroën app, which allows you to programme your vehicle to start charging at a time convenient to you.

Absolutely top notch, couldn't be happier. Customer service is second to none, don't be scared of main dealers !! Shout out to Louise and Ash, Fantastic, couldn't do enough for me, not to mention saving me an absolute fortune. Thank you !

Matty B from the black country

Absolutely best dealer ever had the pleasure to deal with when no one else could get me the car I wanted they pulled it out of the bag, Andy the sale manager is a true gent can't say enough about good the whole experience was, if you are looking for an MG or Citroen this place should be your first call.

Ed Kohut

recently bought a C3 Aircross from Autobase. The service was brilliant. I mainly dealt with Rheannah. Once I had paid the deposit the car was given an MOT and went through all the checks - the cost of this is paid for by the garage. A few days later I picked up my car fully MOT'd for a full year. I've had the vehicle for just over a week and I'm very happy with it. Would definitely recommend. 1

Mike Goble

Came in for a service and was greeted by a wonderfully polite Louise, she talked me through everything and really went above and beyond when they found the car hadn't had the necessary work required for a manufacturer recall twice!! Louise manged to sort out all the work needed I really can't thank Louise enough and the care she provided throughout

kellie millard

Just purchased my first ever brand new car off these guys. The service I recieved from there was second to none. Big thanks to Andy and rheannah the sales executives for making the process quick and easy. Really happy with my car and would definitely recommend this dealership in wednesbury for future purchases

Simone Mcgowan

Quite enjoyed the car buying process with Autobase. Not only their cars are competitively priced, Andy and Rhineana offered a ton of knowledge and technical/ financial advice. And at no point I feel any pressure to rush for a decision. Can't fault it.
