According to the French automaker, the maximum range of Citroen DS3 Electrum per charge is 120 kilometers. In this case, to charge the batteries to 80% takes only half an hour. Though, however, it is not a charge from the usual household network, and such a result is possible only using a special installation that permits much faster recharging of batteries. In addition, the Citroen particularly noted that the electrical DS3 concept model is not at all inferior to its brother with a traditional internal combustion engine, whether we talk about the dynamics, control, or the amount of free space in the cabin and the trunk. Though we still do not know any details about the future of the project.
