Citroën UK has announced that all new electric (BEV) and plug-in hybrid (PHEV) models from the brand will benefit from Assistance cover for eight years/100,000 miles. The comprehensive offer includes roadside assistance and recovery, assistance at home, onward travel and even European cover, for all customers of the Citroën brand’s range of BEV and PHEV models.
The cover provides 24 hour assistance across the UK and Europe. As a further added benefit, if the customer sells the vehicle within the free cover period, the remaining cover is transferred to the new owner.
This enhanced cover is offered in addition to Citroën’s traction battery warranty, which is included with all electric vehicles. Covering the same eight-year/100,000 miles period, it ensures that battery performance is maintained at 70 per cent of the original battery capacity.
In addition to both the Assistance and traction battery cover, Citroën UK is also offering a five-year/100,000 mile warranty on all new models ordered through its online Citroën store. Available previously only on new ‘C-Series’ models – and subsequently New C4 and ë-C4 – that were ordered online via the Citroën Store, the offer has now been extended to all models ordered via the new online platform.
Eurig Druce, Managing Director of Citroën UK, said: “At Citroën we believe in ‘electrification for all’ and with the adoption of electrified vehicles steadily increasing we want to make it as easy as possible for customers to make the switch. We hope our latest announcement of free Assistance for eight years/100,000 miles will provide yet further peace-of-mind.
“This latest announcement follows on from the fact that all Citroën electrified models continue to enjoy an eight-year extended warranty on their traction battery, retail orders purchased online will also attract a five-year warranty and to make the switch even easier we are also offering free home charge points on selected models. There has never been a better time to enjoy an electrified Citroën with the comprehensive list of services that accompany the ownership experience”.
