Citroen's stunning all-electric racing concept car, Survolt, will come to life on 10th July when it makes its first ever on-track appearance at the Le Mans Classic. It will be piloted by experienced female racing driver, Vanina Ickx.

The Survolt, which we previewed at is an extremely rare concept in the racing world. Its full electric drivetrain allows the model to combine dynamic, sporting performance with environmental consideration.

Specially developed with compact dimensions, Survolt features a tubular chassis, flat underside with an extractor, and full carbon bodywork, which all combine to make it a genuine electric racing car.

Propelled by two electric motors with a combined power of 300hp from 0-5,000rpm, Survolt's lightweight frame (1.15 tonnes) is capable of exceptional performance, with a top speed of 162mph and a 0-62mph time of under five seconds. Survolt's twin 310 lb lithium-ion batteries each boast 42hp and can cover 124 miles.

Survolt can be re-charged in just two hours with a specific power supply, or in 10 hours on the French 220-volt network. Citroen is inviting all automotive enthusiasts to visit the Le Mans circuit on Saturday 10th July, at 1.30pm, to watch Survolt's track debut.
