Think of the Citroën Survolt as a futuristic Bugatti Veyron, but with Lamborghini-style doors and powered purely by electric motors. Just "push the accelerator and away you go in one constant, addictive, thrust of torque. 0-62mph is over and done with with in just under 5.0 seconds." Continue reading for two videos, more pictures, and additional information.
But perhaps the greatest thing this Survolt offers is potential. It's a long way from being a properly sorted racing car, but Citroen is driving its electric tech forward with this vehicle. Previously, manufacturers used F1 as a test bed for improvements to road cars, but maybe electric road car improvements will come from the likes of the Survolt and the one-make racing series it will hopefully spawn. If that's the case, it can only be good news.
