The company describes the e-C4 X as a "cross-design" that is an alternative to conventional family hatchbacks and SUVs, essentially integrating a fastback sedan body into a raised hatchback design. It is not too different from the new model of the sister brand Peugeot 408, but Citroen is built on a different platform.

Citroen designers avoided putting a hatchback trunk lid on the e-C4 X, instead it has a proper sedan-style opening. The extra length of the rear overhang means that up to 510 liters of space can be found with the rear seats installed.

The new rear also features new LED taillights that look like arrows pointing inward towards the center of the trunk lid. A small ducktail spoiler gives the car a sporty look, while the rear bumper has also been designed specifically for the e-C4 X.

The dashboard features a compact digital display located behind the steering wheel, there is also a 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system located in the center, the infotainment software is new. Advanced Comfort seats from Citroen come as standard and are made from special, thicker foam.

The new infotainment system also includes a digital assistant system with natural speech recognition, which is activated with the voice prompt "hello Citroen". The infotainment system can store up to eight individual profiles with individual settings.

The battery-electric version of the novelty is the only option that will go on sale in the UK, along with several other European markets. Using the renowned e-CMP platform, a 50kWh battery is paired with a 134hp/260Nm electric motor driving the front wheels. Citroen claims the e-C4 X has a range of 360 kilometers, a 0-100 km/h time of 9.7 seconds and a top speed of 150 km/h. Charging takes place at up to 100kW, allowing the battery to be charged from 0 to 80 percent in approximately 30 minutes. Charging the e-C4 X with a 7.4kW wall box will take approximately 7.5 hours and compatibility with 11kW* 3-phase charging will be optional.
