The Survolt Concept

A blend of high-fashion, extravagance and more than a hint of motor racing, Citroen claims Survolt takes the essence of its Revolte concept and adds an assertive sporting dimension.

A new breed of stylish, sporty and elegant supermini, Survolt bucks current trends and points towards the future of sleek coupes - combining elegance, sophisticated style and sporting passion.

Clearly ahead of its time, Survolt also capturees the imagination with its environmentally-conscious all-electric drivetrain, which delivers driving pleasure, thrills and performance - all in virtual silence. With a sleek, compact and low-slung frame, Survolt takes inspiration from sports car styling, then casts convention aside to form an entirely new and revolutionary concept design. The distinctive profile features a voluptuous hood and generous, sculpted flanks highlighted by emphatic wheel arches. The front end is characterized by slim, horizontal headlights, a large oval-shaped grille with Citroen's integrated double chevrons and an eye-catching badge design. The striking LED clusters also add a contemporary, high-tech flourish.

At the rear, Survolt inherits the elegant light signature of the Revolte concept and gains a new spoiler - an essential reference to motor sport.

An evolution of Revolte's distinctive color palette, Survolt's two-tone paintwork features shades of fuchsia and charcoal grey. The concept's elegant curves, shifting from satin-smooth to shiny, are a clear departure from the classically masculine design codes of the sports car world and the use of chrome and aluminum throughout, referencing luxury and motor racing.

Survolt's two-seat cockpit has a generous glazed area to bring a sensation of light and space, which sets Survolt apart from many contemporary sports cars with their confined and gloomy cabin environments.
