Citroen EV Design Challenge - Web Exclusive

A series of visionary designs in a Citroën-sponsored project were unveiled at the Royal College of Art’s Interim Degree Show in London.

Feb 7, 2011

The Double Challenge required RCA MA second-year students to design a compelling ultra-compact model that could establish a unique Citroën e-vehicle aesthetic for the future. The project was jointly sponsored by Citroën and EXA, a French-based aerodynamic simulation software company. Heikki Juvonen’s E-3POD Antistatic was chosen as the best overall design by representatives from Citroën’s Style Centre and Electric Vehicle Development Team.

His single-seat creation is a bold and engaging take on an urban three-wheel electric vehicle. The distinctive aerodynamic styling features two smaller wheels at the front with the driver sitting inside a larger third wheel with an innovative hub-less design.

As his prize, Heikki receives a six-month employment contract to work at the prestigious PSA Design Centre in Paris. Citroën had significant involvement throughout the Double Challenge project, providing industry figures to lend the students their expertise and experience, as well as organizing a trip to the PSA Design Centre and Le Conservatoire, Citroën’s in-house museum of historic models.
