Citroën Survolt hits the track [video]

Citroën has released a new teaser video of the Survolt concept, ahead of the car's track debut at the Le Mans Classic on July 10th.

Originally unveiled at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show, the Survolt boasts sexy styling, a tubular chassis, carbon fiber bodywork, and a flat underside.

Motivation is provided by two electric motors, with a combined 300 bhp (224 kW / 304 PS), which are powered by twin 31 kW lithium-ion batteries. They allow the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in less than five seconds and hit a top speed of 260 km/h (162 mph). While those are decent performance numbers for an EV, the range is only 200 km (124 miles). When depleted, the batteries can be replenished in two hours (with a rapid charger) or ten hours (with a standard 220 volt outlet).
