Citroën reveals Tribek concept – shagging wagon of the future

Keen bumper sticker readers would have surely seen the classic “If the wagons rocking don’t come a knocking” label affixed to the occasional van. Now Citroen has brought the shagging wagon into the 21st century with its latest show car concept. The French carmaker has just revealed official images of its new concept van named the Tubik which is set for an official debut at the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show.

The French have done more for romance than just invent pashing a.k.a French kissing, they also came up with two of the first shagging wagons – the 1939 Tub van and its replacement, the 1948 Type H that was produced up until the beginning of the 1980s. The Tubik concept pays homage to these historic machines and adds a range of modern conveniences.

The Tubik isn’t just about the horizontal action and can serve as both a commercial van and a people carrier with very usable dimensions; 4.8 metres long, 2.08m wide and 2.05m tall. The space age carrier can seat up to nine passengers in three lounge-style seats, with the driver operating in a separated compartment. As for windows – who really needs them?

There is a range of configurations for the three rows of seats with each seat being independent for maximum comfort. The first row of seats allows two people to sit facing either the road or the other passengers. The middle row can seat up to three people or be converted into a small table, or be folded onto the last row to free up an area of 2 square metres. The third row is where the magic happens, it can be transformed into a flat bed.

In terms of power, the Tubik, like all good concepts in 2011, is powered by a full-hybrid diesel drivetrain.
