The word

C-ZERO

Citroen has announced that in the fourth quarter of 2010, they will be launching their Mitsubishi i MiEV-derived C-ZERO all-electric car.

The car will be branded under both the Peugeot and Citroen names in the nations where those names are marketed. It will be sold throughout Europe.

In nearly all respects, the C-ZERO has the same specs as the i MiEV, including the latest-generation 330V li-ion battery block. The charging system will be aimed towards the 220V European standard.

And so ...

Given the highway-readiness of the C-ZERO, its expected range (81 miles), and the long-trust in the Citroen and Peugeot brands, this car may do well in most of the EU.
