Introducing the new Citroën C5 Aircross Plug-In Hybrid
The new Citroën C5 Aircross Plug-in Hybrid is a mid-size SUV vehicle with a PHEV drivetrain. Offering the combined virtues of both fully electric and combustion engine power, it allows you to transport the entire family safely, comfortably and of course efficiently.
Pairing a plug-in hybrid powertrain with the top-selling C5 Aircross SUV was a no brainer for the French manufacturer. With the choice of three driving modes - electric, hybrid and sport - drivers are placed firmly in control of their energy consumption at all times.
Delivering a relaxed, comfortable and enjoyable driving experience, the new Citroën C5 Aircross Plug-in Hybrid serves up the best of both worlds in more ways than one.
Range and Performance
New Citroën C5 Aircross Plug-in Hybrid has an all-electric range of up to 34 miles, after which the 177bhp efficient petrol combustion engine will kick in to keep you moving.
This means you can complete shorter daily trips - like your commute, for example - with zero tailpipe emissions, but you have the freedom and flexibility of a petrol engine so if you wanted to trek to the other side of the country at the weekend, you can. There's no range anxiety whatsoever - when the electric range runs out, you simply drive it like a normal car.
With the electric motor and the combustion engine working together, power is an impressive 225bhp. Delivered through a silky-smooth 8-speed automatic gearbox, swift progress is both effortless and efficient.
Although no details have been presented by Citroën as of yet, we believe Charging the new Citroën C5 Aircross Plug-in Hybrid will be fast, simple and easy to do as it will do doubt follow the outgoing model's processes.
Therefore, using the on-board 7kW charger and a Wallbox (that can be installed at your home or workplace fairly simply in most cases), the hybrid batteries can be charged from empty to full in around two hours.
An innovative feature that helps reduce running costs and enhance convenience still further is the ë-Remote control service, found in the MyCitroën app. This gives you two main benefits:
- Deferred charging - Set your new Citroën C5 Aircross Plug-in Hybrid to charge during off-peak times, such as the middle of the night, when electricity costs less (tariff dependent).
- Pre-conditioning - Providing the car has a certain level of charge, you can remotely activate the air conditioning to pre-warm or cool down the car's interior for you.
