Citroen C-Zero Electric Hybrid a new model of carbon dioxide emissions that the French brand will bring to market in the last quarter of 2010 expanding the range of urban vehicles and making it easier to daily mobility in cities. C-Zero is a vehicle that was manufactured in collaboration with Mitsubishi Motors Corporation and is modeled on Japan’s Mitsubishi i-MIEV, the second model powered by electricity by the Citroën Berlingo First Electrique.
Citroen C-ZERO is all about its powertrain. It’s a plug-in electric vehicle, with a lithium ion battery pack and electric motor powering it. It requires a seven-hour charge to completely fill those batteries – or a 30-minute quick charge to 80 percent if you can find a high voltage power outlet. Its range is about 80 miles in normal use.
Citroen has added a more conventional automatic transmission to the C-Zero. Instead of the multi-mode item in the Mitsubishi the C-Zero simply offers you Drive, Reverse, Park and Neutral.
