Citroën Thinks Smaller Batteries, Charged More Often, Leads To Less Time Wasted!​

Citroën's ë-C4 Packs A 50 kWh Battery...​

As the auto industry transitions over to electricity, automakers are changing our ways of thinking and getting into different habits. Choosing a smaller, less expensive battery, with a high-charging capacity, and charging it quickly and more often, ends up being more economical meaning you are continually disadvantaged by a heavy, expensive battery whose total range is only rarely fully leveraged. That is the thought of the Citroën brand.

Makes sense in certain circumstances to have a smaller battery with more frequent charge cycles, however in rural areas it would be a considerable issue as the charging infrastructure will be all but non existent (based on the majority of Wales). Am i mistaken in thinking that battery life is counted in charge/discharge cycles? If so, will it mean a shorter working life for Citroen powepacks?

I think this is the completely wrong approach, and seems more like a stupid excuse for the current limitations of the e-CMP platform.

The limitations of one's electric vehicle such as battery capacity, power, range and allowable vehicle class will be determined by an owner/operator's social credit score. Access to to a charging network will also depend on an individual's social credit which will be constantly monitored by the authorities.

My score will not be very high because I wrote this post.

50kWh battery is to small for a C-seg Xover car, but ok for the e208-Corsa e B-Hatch sibblings. The limitation is the poor eCMP platform…

But the larger EMP2 is also poor designed for BEV… the futur e308 will have only 54kWh of battery and a poor 154hp FWD motor…
Former PSA were very late in BEV tech… they put more models on market, but with very poor technology…

At least, Stellantis will be ok on D and upper Seg. with the BEV Giorgio version with a 105kWh battery pack and powerfull motors (from +400 to +1200hp). Thanks to former FCA technologies… ;)

Yup, precisely iDrive. But they shouldn't sugar-coat that on marketing speak.

There, fixed it for you.

Mah... Chinese platform. I don't like it at all. So sad to see eMini killed.

Currently battery integration as done by ex-FCA is superior to ex-PSA platforms yet they are pushing with technically inferior products.

Wasn't it you that was sure about STLA Small being an eMini evolution?

Of course small batteries and lower weight would be better for most drives in every day life. But when you only have one car, you obviously want the option to drive long distances as well.

It was KrisW I think. I don't think STLA Small is based on e-CMP. We need to see.

STLA Small is still long way off and it's the last one scheduled for debut.
