Citroen Says Survolt Electric Sports Car Intended for "Low-Volume" Production

· · 4 years ago

The much ballyhooed Citroen Survolt sports car concept unveiled earlier this year at the Geneva Motor Show is getting closer and closer to production all the time. After its in-the-flesh debut at the Le Mans classic last weekend, it now appears that Citroen has actual production plans for the vehicle.

Autocar UK, citing an unnamed source (as they often do), quotes that source as saying, "It’s still our intention to put the Survolt into low-volume production, and we’re pursuing the idea of a one-make race series."

Although there is no hint of pricing yet, given a low volume production run, the presence of 62 kWh worth of lithium-ion batteries, and extensive use of carbon fiber, you can be sure the Survolt won't come cheap. Reportedly, the Survolt prototype used last weekend has dual electric motors that produce a combined 278 HP. Citroen has claimed that the car can get from 0-60 mph in less than 5 seconds and has a top speed of 160 mph.
