Citroen hopes to sell 4,000 units of its C-Zero electric mini in Spain by 2015 and plans to roll it out by late 2010, a company official has confirmed.

The target accounts for 9% of the French automaker’s 50,000-unit global sale forecast for the EVs period.

In Spain itself, the brand says it can sell 70,000 units of the C-Zero by 2020. This will of course depend on how fast the country can install electric vehicle recharging infrastructure, a process that has so far moved at a snail’s pace.

The car, a rebadged Mitsubishi i-MiEV, will initially be sold to corporate fleets and will gradually reach the retail market in 2015 when electric cars should make up for 4.5% of Europe’s auto market, Citroen said.

The four-seater C-Zero’s price tag is EUR29,000.

To boost sales in Spain, where PSA Peugeot Citroen leads the market alongside Renault, Citroen also hopes to sell the electric Berlingo in coming months. Next year, it will launch the DS5 hybrid and another hybrid in 2012, the official confirmed without providing further details.
