The Citroën Revolte is a hybrid concept supermini that was presented and produced by Citroën at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show.[1]

Overview[edit]

The Revolte is based on the historical Citroën 2CV.[2] The concept car shows the changes that have been happening in terms of the role superminis and that style and elegance have become as important as economy and practicality. The Citroën Revolte is related to the Citroën Survolt.

The Revolte concept features Citroën's bold design, which has become part of its history bringing a new contemporary approach to its superminis. If produced, the Citroën Revolte is renamed Citroën DS2 and it is based on the Citroën DS3 and the Citroën C3 and Citroën will produce the new DS2 in mid-January 2017 and it will be built alongside the current hatchback Citroën C3 and the current hatchback Citroën DS3.

The Revolte is 3.68m long, 1.73m wide and 1.35m tall.[3] With well defined wheel arches, curving bonnet, forceful lines and sculpted sides, matching the roof line, the Revolte has a sleek and elegant profile, similar to that of the Citroën Survolt, a concept hybrid supercar still under development by Citroën.

Engine and drivetrain[edit]

The concept car is powered by both a rechargeable electric engine and a small-capacity conventional combustion engine. The Revolte is able to deliver zero-emission driving thanks to its all-electric ZEV (Zero Emission Vehicle) mode. The combined engines make 323 horsepower, 142 foot pounds of torque, a top speed of 140mph and 0-60 in 5 seconds.[citation needed]
