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

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.
