Citroen Survolt is an amazing concept car which is an all-electric sportscar, well race car to be more precise.The car itself it’s revolunary and might spawn some production models in future, but even better than the car itself, is Citroen’s publicity stuff for it! Firs we had this nice video featuring a very beautiful model doing naughty things, and now it’s making it track debut at Le Mans with Jacky Ickx’ daughter Vanina at the wheel.
Hit the jump to see some artistic photographs of the event.
Extremely rare in the world of racing, Survolt’s full electric drivetrain allows the model to combine dynamic, sporting performance with environmental consideration. Specially developed with compact dimensions (3.85m long, 1.87m wide, 1.2m high), Survolt features a tubular chassis, a flat underside with an extractor and full carbon bodywork, which all combines to make it a genuine electric racing car.
Propelled by two electric motors with a combined power of 300bhp from 0 to 5,000rpm, Survolt’s lightweight frame (1.15 tonnes) is capable of exceptional performance, with a top speed of 260kph (162mph) and a 0-100kph (0-62mph) time of under five seconds.
Survolt’s twin 140kg lithium-ion batteries each boast a 31kw capacity and can cover 200km (124 miles). Survolt can be re-charged in just two hours with a specific power supply, or in 10 hours on the standard 220 volt network.
