2010 Citroen Survolt Concept news, pictures, and information
The desire to overcome one's limits, take things further, dare and create is written in Citroen's DNA. Breaking wîth convention, shaking up the rules, shifting borders and surprising continuously is the passionate quest and leitmotiv of a brand that over its 90-year history has never ceased to develop innovative objects ahead of their time. Citroen Survolt Concept is one of these. It takes the genetic material of Revolte and adds an extroverted sports dimension to the mix.
Like a luxury accessory that transcends an outfit, Survolt Concept is Citroen's answer to an automotive universe that all too often seems morose. Citroen Survolt Concept casts aside protocol and transgresses existing codes to initiate a new kind of stylish, sporty and elegant supermini. Bucking current trends and pointing to the future of sleek coupés, it unites elegance, glamour and sporting passion, sublimating this last quality wîth its electric drivetrain.
Innovative and sensualWith its compact dimensions - 3.85 m long, 1.87 m wide and 1.20 m high - Citroen Survolt Concept reappropriates sports car styling cues to form an all-new and revolutionary concept.
At the front, the distinctive vehicle badge reigns elegantly above the large oval-shaped grille, its centre home to the striking double chevron. The car's 'look' - charming and profound at the same time - attracts and holds the viewer's gaze wîth a promise of transgressions suddenly made possible. Its slim, horizontal head lamps, inspired by high-performance sports coupés, exert a magnetic appeal, while an LED light signature adds a contemporary, high-tech touch.
Citroen Survolt Concept was made to gobble up the miles and glide over roads. Low-slung and sleek, it features strong contrasts between the voluptuous bonnet and generous, sculpted flanks, highlighted by emphatic wheel arches that promise performance and thrills.
Citroen Survolt Concept's air-slicing, flowing design is heavy on excitement and sensuality. It conveys agility, precision and vitality, barely containing a powerful, well-defined musculature under refined and luxurious wraps. The rear features the elegant light signature of Revolte together wîth a spoiler in an essential reference to motor sport.
Citroen Survolt Concept is innovative and powerful but also knows how to turn on the charm, revealing its finest assets to catwalk in motor sports arenas. It features two-tone paint, hues of fuchsia and charcoal grey, and plays wîth materials and volumes. The curves shift from satin-smooth to shiny, breaking definitively wîth the classic masculine codes of the sports world. Citroen Survolt Concept continues the work begun wîth Revolte by once again blending two universes wîth contrasting appearances. Citroen Survolt Concept eschews decorum to create its own styling language.
The inclusion of materials such as chrome and aluminium inevitably recall the spheres of luxury goods and motor sport. Citroen Survolt Concept is a perfect combination between high fashion and car racing, a unique alliance wîth the same philosophy and the same cues as Revolte, namely performance, cutting-edge technology and excellence.
Citroen Survolt Concept's cockpit is designed like a floating cell, a glass setting held between chrome-finished roll bars like some magnificent piece of jewellery. The leitmotiv wîth Citroen Survolt Concept is to transgress the conventions of the luxury world and combine them elegantly wîth those of the sporting world.
The cabin was imagined as a cross between two worlds that by their essence are opposed. This union begets an organic universe, both flowing and technical, from which the driver's station springs forth. The interior as a whole was designed to bring the two occupants comfort and refinement, triggering singular pleasure and an outstanding experience.
The car's generous glazed area brings light and a sensation of space, light years from that offered by today's sports cars.
Transcendent power and excitement
Ahead of its time, Citroen Survolt Concept captivates wîth its innovative, environment-friendly technology. Like Revolte, Citroen Survolt Concept is powered by electricity, thus combining sports performance wîth environmental respect and sustainable development. Still particularly rare in the racing world, this technological solution also embodies a previously unthinkable alliance. But Citroen dares and creates, transgressing conventions to better sublimate them. With irreproachable ecological credentials, the drivetrain blends driving pleasure, thrills, performance and vitality, and all in extreme comfort, since the car is silent in operation.
Citroen is proposing a new automotive vision wîth Citroen Survolt Concept, in a move that is entirely consistent wîth its 90-year history as an innovative brand focused on creativity and technology.
