Citroen has struck a partnership with subscription service Onto, which sees the new e-C4 in ‘Shine Plus’ specification become available on the all-in-one service. 300 e-C4s will be available on Onto. The first vehicles will be available in October.
Onto started in 2017 with the aim of accelerating the number of EV owners and providing an alternative to traditional car ownership. It currently has more than 3000 active subscribers who will soon be able to gain access to the new Citroen e-C4.
