Citroen has announced that it will be displaying a concept C5 Aircross Hybrid at the 2018 Paris Motor Show.
First shown in pictures released by the French brand, the plug-in hybrid version of the soon-to-be-released C5 Aircross, which will also be receiving its public debut at the biennial motor show.
The C5 Aircross Hybrid is a plug-in hybrid – the first to be built by Citroen – and it will receive its market launch in 2020, leading the manufacturer’s Low Emission Vehicle offensive.
It will be fitted with a petrol-hybrid setup that teams a 178bhp PureTech engine to an 80kW electric motor to produce 222bhp and will be paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Citroen claims the plug-in will be able to go 31 miles on all-electric power and it will start a sequence of the brand releasing an electrified vehicle every year up to 2025 – by which time Citroen hopes it will provide an all-electric range.See Available Citroen C5 Deals
