Citroen C5 X 2024: plug-in hybrid variant coming to join pure combustion model


Citroen’s C5 X is finally going hybrid, and will join its combustion sibling in the lineup in the first half of 2024 

Citroen has confirmed it will bring a plug-in hybrid version of its C5 X wagon to Australia during the first half of 2024. 

Rivalling the likes of the Skoda Superb wagon, Genesis G70 Shooting Brake and the Skoda Octavia wagon, the Citroen C5 X is set to become a little more powerful, and is expected to be more efficient, too. 

The Citroen C5 X plug-in hybrid is expected to have an electric-only range of around 55km (WLTP).

Pricing and specification are yet to be determined, however we can estimate that the C5 X plug-in hybrid could cost around $65,000 before on-road costs. 

During 2022 and 2023, Chasing Cars ran a long-term Citroen C5 X wagon, which you can read about on our website

Although Citroen Australia has not yet given much detail about its plug-in hybrid (PHEV) variant, in overseas markets such as the United Kingdom the same PHEV model is available. 

In the UK, the PHEV consists of a 1.6-litre four-cylinder petrol engine mated to a 80kW electric motor and eight-speed automatic transmission. Total outputs are rated at 167kW/250Nm, which is a 34kW increase from the non-hybrid model. Torque remains at the same 250Nm between the powertrain types.
