Citroen has decided to prove electric power is not all about being boring and frugal. The company set up this race demonstration as a way of educating and proving just how capable electric vehicle technology can be.
In the world of motor racing, electric-powered motors can present similar in-car theatre as petrol-powered racers it seems, but the lack of gear changing and engine noise does seem a bit dull compared to the petrol-powered equivalents.
Citroen's latest plans were to put the Survolt EV into low-volume production and eventually release it on the market. Specifications and schedule dates are yet to be finalised.
