Citroen C3 e-HDi 70 Airdream unveiled – the lowest Co2 emitting diesel image

French carmaker Citroen has just unveiled the new C3 e-HDi 70 Airdream EGS VTR+ – its most CO2 efficient conventionally powered model to date.

First displayed at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show in September, the new e-HDi 70 Airdream EGS VTR+ C3 model will be available by the end of the month with an OTR MRRP of £15,290, complete with the C3’s renowned panoramic Zenith windscreen.

“Citroën is committed to driving down the cost of motoring and this new model is a perfect example of that. With impressive fuel economy, low CO2 emissions, a BIK rate at just 13%, free VED and the benefit of no London Congestion Charge, this stylish model is a financially and environmentally attractive addition to the Citroën range.” Jules Tilstone, Citroën UK’s Marketing Director said.

The new C3 model comes with Citroën’s e-HDi micro-hybrid Stop & Start technology, combined with a refined and efficient 68hp HDi diesel engine, to deliver fuel economy of up to 88.3mpg in extra urban driving.
