Citroen Revolte concept – suitably named

Citroen Revolte concept – suitably named

Citroen Revolte concept fq

After once staging a famous revolution and now, chain smoking while eating snails the French certainly know the meaning of the word “revolt”. It’s not surprising that French carmaker Citroen knowingly used the word — with an extra ‘E’ for its latest concept car unveiled this week in Frankfurt.

The REVOLTe concept is a throwback Citroen’s iconic 2CV, which celebrated its 60th anniversary last year. The REVOLTe simply borrows the basic shape of its forbearer and gives it a modern take. The modern part comes in the form of an unspecified small-capacity conventional combustion engine combined with an electric motor and a battery re-charging function. Measuring just twelve feet long, the REVOLTe has seating capacity for three — one offset up front and two in the back — accessed by suicide doors.

No output or performance figures have been officially released for the REVOLTe but according to the press release it is a ‘lively performer with strong acceleration’. It may just need that speed to evade the rioting masses angry at this polarizing new take on the much loved 2CV.
