The brand new Citroen C-Zero took an outing out in London last week to meet the Mayor of London Boris Johnson. London is gearing up to become the ‘electric car capital of the world’ under the auspices of the first ever city wide electric vehicle charging network ‘Source London’ which will launch this spring.
The Citroen C-Zero is capable of 93 miles once fully charged. Citroen’s research shows that the average daily journey in urban areas is 23 miles with the car not been used for 92% of each day creating numerous opportunities to recharge. At the present time there is approximatle7 250 charge points across the capital which Source London has committed to expanding to at least 1300 accessible points by 2013.
Linda Jackson, Managing Director of Citroen UK said “C-Zero is perfectly placed to demonstrate the benefits of switching on to electric power, by offering zero emissions while running, owners incur zero company car tax, zero Vehicle Excise Duty and zero London Congestion Charge. We are delighted to see the Citroën C-Zero take its place at the start of an exciting new era for London.”
