Citroën is not a name familiar to many in the United States. This French automaker, however, is making quite a splash at the Geneva Auto Show this week with the unveiling of its Survolt all-electric sports car concept. It is one sleek looking ride, like so many others we’ve seen already, and certainly carries forward the idea that green car design has moved well past the early Prius stage.
The Citroën Survolt, according to the company, is driven by an all-electric drivetrain. That is, unfortunately, all of the details released on the mechanics of this car at this time. The maker says the Survolt sports a “sleek, compact and low-slung frame” which is 3.85m long, 1.87m wide & 1.2m high. The front end of this vehicle sports slim, horizontal headlights and a large oval-shaped grille with Citroën’s integrated double chevrons, while the backside gains a new spoiler as “an essential reference to motor sport.”
Other noted aspects of the Survolt, drawing upon the company’s previous Revolte green car concept, include a two tone paintwork with “shades of fuchsia and charcoal grey” and a two-occupant cockpit “designed like a glass setting between the chrome-finished roll bars.”
