As London tries to position itself as the electric car capital of the world, the acclaimed Citroen C-ZERO has been introduced to the city’s Mayor, Boris Johnson.

The C-ZERO has a maximum range of 93 miles and is already capable of cutting through London’s traffic. Indeed research from Citroen shows that average daily journeys in urban areas are 23 miles, with the car at rest for 92 per cent of the day – more than enough to provide plenty of recharging opportunities.

Boris Johnson believes that the C-ZERO will have a great chance of success in London.
