Plug-in Hybrid Range


Citroën’s plug-in hybrid technology offers the perfect combination of a super smooth electric motor for shorter commutes and school runs, seamlessly switching to a petrol engine for longer journeys.

Introducing Plug-in Hybrid

Plug-in hybrids are a new way to drive and are now available as part of Citroën’s  bold and powerfully engineered range of cars. If you want to drive a partially electrified vehicle, you can now take advantage of improved fuel economy and a whole range of driving benefits.

These new models are great for mobility needs in tight city spaces and come with the distinctive design that you have come to expect from a Citroën.

What is a PHEV

PHEV is a vehicle that has complimentary petrol engine and electric motor. Citroen PHEV enables you to drive in utilising Sport (what ever the full petrol mode its) for petrol driving, hybrid for combined performance with improved effiency or E for full electric driving enabled by the plug-in nature of the vehicle.

How PHEVs work

Plug-in hybrid cars draw power from two sources – in this case, a battery and petrol to provide energy that your internal combustion engine needs.

You may be new to the world of hybrid driving and wondering what separates a hybrid vs plug-in hybrid. The main difference is that a PHEV uses its battery as the main source of energy before drawing on its fuel-powered component.

Fuel economy

With electricity’s lower cost you can use this energy as your main driving force. A plug-in hybrid car also uses regenerative braking – this technology stores power as your car slows down.

This energy would be wasted in a conventional engine, so a PHEV also improves your fuel economy with this innovation.


Discover ë-comfort

The Citroën plug-in hybrid keeps the superior ride that comes from the Citroën Advanced Comfort™ Suspension system and Advanced Comfort seats.

It then enhances that feeling of well-being with a super smooth electric motor that combines effortlessly with the petrol engine.

Combining the best of electric and combustion

In 100% electric mode, enjoy increased performance , instantaneous engine torque and good acceleration in silence. When you want to escape to further away, the petrol engine will simply take over.

Economical to run

Thanks to its engine, the plug-in hybrid has improved fuel consumption and you considerably cut your fuel costs on your everyday journeys. Although the Citroën plug-in hybrid is more technological than a purely combustion engine vehicle, its service schedule remains the same. Entrust its services to specifically trained experts throughout the Citroën network.

The eagerly anticipated flagship of the Citroën range.

Citroën C5 X Plug-in Hybrid uniquely combines the elegance of a sedan and the versatility of a hatchback with the commanding road presence of an SUV. ​

It’s plug-in hybrid technology has a WLTP test range of up to 60km of electric-only driving(i) Figure based on WLTP (Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure) static laboratory combined average city and highway cycle test, which measure, energy consumption, range and emissions in passenger vehicles, figures stated for the purposes of comparison amongst vehicles tested to the same technical procedures only. Actual real world range results will vary depending on a combination of factors including but not limited to load, driving style, type of journey, vehicle configuration, battery age and condition, use of vehicle features (such as heating and air conditioning), as well as operating, environmental and climate conditions.  , while the smooth petrol engine gives the performance needed for longer journeys.
