The French manufacturer has released a single image of the Citroen Cactus and a 21-second video detailing what it calls ‘Air Bump’. It appears Air Bump refers to a new bumper design, allowing the car to resist small knocks and scrapes.

The lone image of the car reveals super-slim headlights not unlike those found on the new Citroen C4 Picasso, as well as black cladding and Air Bump at the front.

The image also reveals a snazzy alloy wheel wrapped in Michelin rubber.

Nothing is known about the Cactus concept's mechanicals at this stage.


The last time Citroen revealed a concept inspired by an arid-climate plant was in with the 2007 C-Cactus, so named because of the concept’s low fuel-consumption. Powered by a diesel-hybrid engine, that car was tipped to either replace the C3 or form part of a new budget model range.

Given the Cactus’ name, it seems safe to assume the new concept will also boast strong fuel efficiency.

Citroen says further information about the Cactus will be released in just over a week. Stay tuned for details.
