Citroen's Survolt At Le Mans - Web Exclusive

Jul 13, 2010

The stunning Citroen Survolt racing car concept made its first all-electric laps of the legendary Le Mans Circuit last weekend, at the Le Mans Classic.

With its 100% battery-powered drivetrain, Survolt charged around the course, followed closely by the GTbyCITROEN concept and a parade of Citroen DS3 models.

Piloting the radical concept was experienced female racing driver, Vanina Ickx, who commented: "I am very proud to have participated in this unique project. On the track it felt really good. It's a real race car with promising potential for the future."

Survolt's two electric motors provide up to 300hp, a top speed of 162mph and a 0-62mph time of less than five seconds.

The twin 140kg lithium-ion batteries can cover 124 miles and can be re-charged in just two hours with a specific power supply, or in 10 hours on the standard French 220-volt network.

The Survolt concept is an exploration by Citroen into the potential of new racing technologies, while showcasing a distinctive and stylish body design.
