Citroen C-ZERO Electric Vehicle Revealed C-ZERO EV Based on Mitsubishi i-MiEV, Launches End of 2010

Citroen wouldn't like to lose market share against those manufacturers
that have already tackled the green minded with their new models, hence
why the French car builder has announced a new electric vehicle concept
that is meant to harm the environment as little as possible. Dubbed the
Citroen C-Zero, the 3.48m-long city car borrows a bit from the
Mitsubishi i-MiEV and its older brother, the Peugeot iOn.
Specs wise, the new Citroen C-Zero electric vehicle a permanent magnet
synchronous motor that outputs a 64hp and 180Nm of torque, and feeds the
engine with a 330-volt lithium-ion battery pack that is capable to
deliver some 16kWh. All these help the little C-Zero sprint from naught
to 100km/h in a not too shabby 15 seconds, with a 130km range —
lower than we would've expected if you need to go between cities, but
probably enough for your daily commuting.
The new Citroen C-Zero electric vehicle takes 6 hours to fully charge on
a 220V plug, but if you're in a hurry and have a 400V external station
in the area, an 80-percent charge only takes 30 minutes and you're again
good to go.
With ABS, electric windows, air conditioning, ESP and six airbags,
Citroen plans to release the C-Zero EV on the market in the last quarter
of 2010.
