Citroën unveiled the REVOLTe Hybrid Concept at Frankfurt. Styled after the iconic 2CV the REVOLTe is as much a fashion statement as it is an enviro-friendly future city car.
The Citroën 2CV of old has inspired this modern REVOLTe Concept car, released at Frankfurt earlier today. As such the REVOLTe is a combination of classic iconic Citroën styling and present-day sophistication and fashion.
It measures 3.68m long, 1.73m wide and 1.35m tall, underlying its purpose as an urban transporter with enough utility to use it as an everyday car. The styling is defined by the curving bonnet, the wide wheel arches and a smooth roofline.
The rear-hinged doors offer ingress into the stylish cabin that features woven black leather, gleaming aluminium and crimson velvet as its signature materials. Therefore comfort is not compromised for the three passengers - one at the front, two at the rear. Actually the rear bench has been built sofa-style for maximum cosiness. Space available can be used for full stretching or for the installation of a rear-facing child-seat.
On-board technological features include a touch-sensitive screen and a gadget that recycles interior air in much the same way as a respiratory system. The folding roof is covered in solar panels which controls some interior functions and helps ease the load on the batteries.
The drivetrain is based on a rechargeable hybrid system with a small-capacity combustion engine but can also offer zero-emission driving when running 100% on electric power.
