According to the media, it is the “electric car game changer” that makes “electric mobility truly affordable for everyone”: the new Citroën ë-C3 will be launched in spring 2024 and can already be ordered now. The small car’s battery scores with its impressive technical details.

2024/03/03 - Two key figures explain the euphoric media response to the small French car from Stellantis: the combination of its low entry-level price of just 23,300 euros (without subsidies) and its range of 300 kilometers according to the WLTP-standard. A combination that was previously unheard of for a five-seater compact car. Until now, customers have either had to dig much deeper into their pockets or be satisfied with significantly less range.

Lithium iron phosphate battery with outstanding durability

In particular, the specific electrical key data of the new Citroën ë-C3 received praise in the reporting: the lithium iron phosphate battery supplied by SVOLT has a capacity of 44 kWh. Compared to a conventional lithium-ion battery, it offers greater thermal and chemical stability and can withstand more charging cycles. The ë-C3 can therefore also be charged at a fast-charging station with up to 100 kW of electricity and its storage capacity can be topped up from 20 to 80 percent in 26 minutes. There is barely enough time for more than a coffee break before the journey can continue.

Kai-Uwe Wollenhaupt, President SVOLT Europe and Senior Vice President SVOLT Energy Technology: “The new Citroën ë-C3 has the potential to achieve a breakthrough in electric mobility for a large group of customers as an affordable electric car that is fully suitable for everyday use. We are proud that SVOLT is making a major contribution to this.”
