Citroen surveyed 2,000 parents who had just transitioned to an electric car or hybrid vehicle and cared for infants and toddlers. The result: 56.4% of parents said their children slept better or the same in the new electric car compared to the old gas or diesel car. A minority (11.9%) of parents reported that an electric automobile made it more difficult to put their children to sleep, while 15.8% were unsure. 44% of parents said they had taken their child on a short trip to help them fall asleep, nearly half of all parents surveyed. Citroen conducted a study demonstrating how useful electric vehicles are for getting kids to sleep. It was found that 96% of parents report that it takes their child an average of 16 minutes to fall asleep in the electric car.
Smooth vehicle movements on the road (46%), a pleasant temperature in the car (41%), and a comfortable seat (40%) are the most important variables that help babies and young children fall asleep while driving, according to parents. According to one survey, 34% of parents believe that a quiet ride is the most important factor in getting their child to sleep.
The latest lineup of Citroen automobiles has been developed with the driver and passenger's maximum comfort. Citroen's electrified vehicles provide the utmost in e-Comfort with their near-silent operation while commuting and other exemplary Citroen qualities. A ride with no jolts, switches, or other disturbances means the kids may sleep soundly.
Citroen has long been associated with a high standard of passenger safety. What makes Citroen so special is a set of innovations that have become instantly recognizable as signature features. In particular, the vehicle's Advanced Comfort suspension smooths the ride over uneven terrain, making it more pleasant for passengers. Advanced Comfort chairs have a high-density foam core and an extra 15 mm thick layer of structured foam for optimal comfort and support, as well as soundproof acoustics that blocks out any background noise.
"Putting a baby to sleep can be difficult for new parents. Many parents have found success with a little vehicle ride with their children. According to our findings, young children have an easier time dozing off on airplanes than at home. For kids and their parents, the quiet and flawless operation of electric vehicles makes for a more relaxing environment. By 2025, Citroen plans to provide an electric version of every model in its lineup. Eurig Druce, head of Citroen England, explains that this is how the company plans to keep making future cars suitable for the whole family.
The nine electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles now available from Citroen include various models that excel in spaciousness, practicality, and adaptability, making them perfect for families.
The WLTP-certified maximum range of the all-electric Citroen e-C4 is 354 kilometers, thanks to its 50 kWh battery.
