2019 Citroën C5 Aircross Hybrid
In fact, Tabula Rasa at Citroën, there is still nothing electric but the C-Zero, and it also has a corporate brother, the Peugeot iOn. It's high time to enter the electric age, even if only because of the 95 euros that every gram of
CO2 costs too much from 2020 because of the EU limits. The C5 Aircross Hybrid is a second step in this direction.
|The Berlingo Electric is more for families and craftsman*woman and the E-Mehari for individualists.
The most important answer first: With little air conditioning or heating, it probably manages the 50 km specified by WLTP purely electrically, otherwise you have to cut back or recharge, which hardly any hybrid owner does.
But in the daily workplace this would be possible without loss of comfort.
At first glance, the C5 Aircross is not cheap if the base price is a good 23,000 euros. But it is much better equipped, even if you don't consider the electric package. In addition, the important competitor VW Tiguan GTE has
just been launched as the 'Active Concept'. And who knows what it will cost?
The Ford Kuga PHEV is announced at least for 2020. And the Opel Grandland X as PHEV does not compete with the C5 Aircross PHEV as corporate brother. It will come with all-wheel drive and more power. So the
electrified SUV flagship from Citroën is still on its own, at least in its price range.
As expected, driving comfort is the trump card, as with the basic model. Of course, this fits with a much heavier version. And you are happy to take the possibilities of the design with you, even though the price will then be
even more higher. The charging system is of course modest, typical of hybrid charging, and a wallbox is absolut not necessary. Also at Citroën nobody seems to expect that drivers of this car will reload during a rest.
Three hours at best. The so-called combined consumption, in this case 1.7 l/100km, with a plug-in hybrid should never be taken seriously. Its advantage is that it can be local emission-free. In theory, it could even
be 135 km/h fast electrically, but for how long? 11/19
