Following on form last year’s unveiling of the Citroen Revolte, this year’s Geneva Motor Show is showcasing the new Citroen Survolt as part of the French company’s continued efforts in electric vehicles. Probably one of the best looking concepts at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show floor, Survolt take best of Citroen Revolte concept and the Citroen GT concept.
Citroen’s latest concept car, the Survolt, is an unusual design study meant to show off a potential all-electric performance vehicle in an extravagant and “high-fashion” package. Performance specs were not revealed on the two-seater, but the French automaker does state that the car has a “motor racing punch”. The design is impressive, featuring voluptuous bonnet and generous, sculpted flanks highlighted by emphatic wheel arches as well as a front end characterised by slim, horizontal headlights, a large oval-shaped grille with Citroen’s integrated double chevrons and an eye-catching vehicle badge design. The rear design is completed by the impressive spoiler, a must-have in motor sport.
Citroen’s new and radical vision with Survolt is entirely consistent with the Company’s 90-years of history as an innovative brand, focused on creativity and technology. The Citroen Survolt measures 3.85 m long, 1.87 m wide and 1.20 m high and it looks the business in all regards. The car’s generous glazed area brings light and a sensation of space, light years from that offered by today’s sports cars.
