Zero emissions.

CITROEN'S new all-electric fourseater city car has made its world debut at the Brussels Motor Show. With zero fuel consumption, zero CO2 emissions and zero engine noise, the French firm claims it's C-ZERO model provides the electric solution to the demands of modern-day urban driving. The car's permanent magnet synchronous motor is powered by a latest-generation lithium-ion battery system and delivers 64bhp, sufficient for a top speed of 80mph and a range of 80 miles.

Prospective customers can contact Citroen for test drives prior to placing orders for the car, which is set to be launched in the autumn.
