Citroën Survolt hits the track

2010-07-09 12:12
Citroën’s Survolt will come to life as an all-electric race car this weekend when it competes in the Le Mans Classic.
 
Referred to as a “racing car concept” after the car was first introduced at the Geneva Motor Show in March, the Survolt features a tubular chassis, flat underside and full carbon body that, along with twin electric motors, make it a genuine electric race car. 

Survolt is driven by two electric motors generating around 220 kW - they contribute to a top speed of 260 km/h and a 0 – 100 km/h sprint time of under five seconds.

The electric racer has a range of about 200 km and can be recharged in two hours using a specific power supply or, as an alternative, 10 hours using a standard household power supply.

The electric racer, seen by the carmaker as a “new vision of the car … focused on creativity and technology," will take to the track on July 10. Survolt will be piloted by experienced race driver Vanina Ickx, who also happens to be the daughter of former F1 pilot Jacky Ickx.
