Set to be revealed at VivaTech in Paris on May 16, the Citroën 19_19 Concept is an all-electric crossover boasting a 497 miles range, suspended cabin technology (Progressive Hydraulic Cushion suspension, combined with smart active control), and autonomous driving technology. Using artificial intelligence, the concept car is equipped with a personal assistant integrated in the dashboard that takes over the vehicle during autonomous driving phases and interacts with passengers via a predictive and proactive system that anticipates the needs of each occupant. On the outside, you’ll find a transparent double bonnet, a full LED light signature partition, concave rear window, a visible LiDAR system mounted on the roof and a subframe.

The vehicle aims to reinvent extended car journeys by sketching out an approach to ultra-comfort bringing occupants regenerative and restorative travel. According to the automaker, occupants can enjoy a true “mental detox” experience for maximum traveling pleasure, total relaxation, calm and well-being. Plus, there’s a head-up display and augmented reality technology that projects road information directly onto the driver’s field of vision, using the windscreen.
“Powering the 19_19 Concept is an all-electric drive train, allowing you to accelerate from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5 seconds flat, before maxing you out at 200 km/h (124 mph). Also available are the 100 kWh batteries, 4WD system, and peak power and torque outputs of 340 kW (456 HP) and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) respectively,” reports Car Scoops.
