Citroen SURVOLT

The French auto maker has just unwrapped the Citroen SURVOLT Concept in Switzerland at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show.

The Citroen SURVOLT is a vehicle that focuses on creativity and the latest technologies with a touch of sportiness as well.

Measuring 3.85 meters in length, 1.87 meters wide and 1.2 meter high, the Citroen SURVOLT features LED light clusters at the front inspired from the REVOLTE concept, a new spoiler and various other aestethical features with a reference to motor sport.

At this point we don't know if the Citroen SURVOLT is just a design study or something that could actually evolve into a production vehicle. 

Citroen press release :

Citroën has revealed an electrifying new model at the Geneva Motor Show - the sensational SURVOLT concept.

A blend of high-fashion, extravagance and more than a hint of motorracing punch, SURVOLT takes the essence of Citroën’s REVOLTE concept -performance, cutting-edge technology and luxury - and adds an assertivesporting dimension into the mix.

A new breed of stylish, sporty and elegant supermini, SURVOLT buckscurrent trends and points towards the future of sleek coupés -combining elegance, sophisticated style and sporting passion.  Clearlyahead of its time, SURVOLT also captivates the

imagination with itsinnovative, environmentally-conscious all-electric drivetrain, whichdelivers driving pleasure, thrills and performance - all in virtualsilence.

With a sleek, compact and low-slung frame - 3.85m long, 1.87m wide& 1.2m high - SURVOLT takes inspiration from sports car styling,then casts convention aside to form an entirely new and revolutionaryconcept design.  SURVOLT’s aerodynamic, flowing lines convey agility,precision and vitality - with a powerful, muscular character containedin its refined and luxurious frame.

Both charming and profound, SURVOLT’s distinctive profile features avoluptuous bonnet and generous, sculpted flanks highlighted by emphaticwheel arches.  The front end is characterised by slim, horizontalheadlights, a large oval-shaped grille with Citroën’s integrated doublechevrons and an eye-catching vehicle badge design.  The striking LEDclusters also add a contemporary, high-tech flourish.  At the rear,SURVOLT inherits the elegant light signature of the REVOLTE concept andgains a new spoiler - an essential reference to motor sport.

An evolution of REVOLTE’s distinctive colour palette, SURVOLT’stwo-tone paintwork features shades of fuchsia and charcoal grey.  Theconcept’s elegant curves, shifting from satin-smooth to shiny, are aclear departure from the classically masculine design codes of thesports car world and the use of chrome and aluminium throughoutsimultaneously references the worlds of luxury and motor racing.

Resembling a piece of fashionable jewellery, SURVOLT’s two-occupantcockpit is designed like a glass setting between the chrome-finishedroll bars.  The generous glazed area brings a sensation of light andspace, which sets SURVOLT apart from many contemporary sports cars withtheir confined and gloomy cabin environments.

Citroën’s new and radical vision with SURVOLT is entirely consistentwith the Company’s 90-years of history as an innovative brand, focusedon creativity and technology.
