Citroën Unveils Cxperience Concept
Exclusively revealed one month ahead of the Paris Motor Show, Citroën Cxperience concept demonstrates the brand’s capacity to deploy its “Be Different, Feel Good” promise in the large saloon segment.
The Cxperience concept car is immediately recognizable. With its two-box style and cleverly designed rear-hinged doors, it looks ready to leap forwards. The bold lines express power, while the generous curves and smooth volumes express the car’s own stylistic language. A vehicle of imposing proportions (4.85m long, 2 m wide) with a very low roof (1.37 m tall) and short overhangs (3 m wheelbase), the concept car allies its majestic stature with flowing lines. The pearlescent sea green “Mizuiro” bodywork is modern, relaxed and sober. The colour further underlines the upmarket looks of this concept car, with its large 22-inch wheels and 5-spoke covers.
Citroën CXPERIENCE CONCEPT delivers outstanding dynamic performance with a petrol engine developing between 150 and 200 HP and up to 80 kW of additional energy provided by the electric motor. Concept can be driven in all-electric mode in the city (ZEV -Zero Emission Vehicle) where it has a range of 60 km. On the open road, fuel consumption can be limited by using the two forms of energy together in successive acceleration phases. On the motorway, the internal combustion engine takes over to deliver real performance at the wheel, with total power of up to 300 HP.
Concept has a 3 kWh battery that can be charged in just a few hours. The vehicle can be charged in 4 1/2 hours with a standard charging system, or in less than 2 1/2 hours with an ultra-simple charging solution based on a 6.6 kW charger designed for connection to a 32A socket.
The 8-speed electric automatic gearbox is placed transversely between the internal combustion engine and the electric motor, and a compact battery is positioned under the cabin to deliver electric power to the rear axle. This maintains both passenger space and boot capacity. http://pluginfuture.com/citroen-unveils-cxperience-concept/http://pluginfuture.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/Citroen_1-1024x622.jpghttp://pluginfuture.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/Citroen_1-150x150.jpgNewsVehicleshybrid concept,plug-in hybridExclusively revealed one month ahead of the Paris Motor Show, Citroën Cxperience concept demonstrates the brand's capacity to deploy its 'Be Different, Feel Good' promise in the large saloon segment.
