Looks like battery to me, I had a battery go flat in about 10hrs a couple of weeks back in my 2015 City X and that's what I got before the voltage dropped too low to run anything.

Stat/Stop being unavailable is a giveaway, I had the RAC out to mine (as I couldn't move it with no power, the electronic handbrake locks on) and he said that losing stop/start was generally the first sign of battery life coming to an end.

You could put the battery on a slow trickle charge overnight to see if that brings it back to life, however between stop/start and battery management (which regulates the alternator feed) it might not give it much longer.
