Affordable Citroen C-Zero in Portugal

Affordable Citroen C-Zero

In Portugal if we want to buy affordable electric cars, one common solution is to buy an used 2011/2012 Peugeot iOn or Citroen C-Zero that was imported from France. These cars in France cost around 8.000 € but in here are sold for about 11.000 € or even more. The biggest disadvantages are that the manufacturer’s warranty is ending and the battery is made with old LEV50 cells.

Even if I think that electric cars with 14,5 kWh batteries should be sold new for less than 15.000 €, paying 17.490 € for a new Citroen C-Zero with the new improved battery (LEV50N) it’s better than paying 11.000 € for a car with the old battery cells and with the warranty ending or already ended.

In the link below you have the dealer’s website that sells the Citroen C-Zero for 17.490 €, in the official Citroen’s website the price is still 31.347,60 €. I hope that this is a sign that Citroen C-Zero will get an official big price drop soon.

My interest in electric transportation is mostly political. I’m tired of coups and wars for oil. My expectation is that the adoption of electric transportation will be a factor for peace and democracy all over the world.

Citroen is pretty strict concerning the yearly checkups! If you miss one your warranty is gone.
