The Survolt is a full-sized racing car based on the earlier electric concept car Citroën Revolte presented at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show. Because the car runs on batteries, it is classed as a zero-emissions vehicle.
The Survolt is 3.85 meters (12.63 feet) long, 1.87 meters (6.14 feet) wide and 1.20 meters (3.94 feet) high and features a design with the front dominated by the vehicle's badge located above the large oval-shaped grille.
At the back, the Survolt maintains the light cluster design used on the REVOLTe, and has a spoiler to increase rear downforce.
An Art Car based on the Survolt has been designed with the collaboration of Françoise Nielly in 2011.
Engine and drivetrain
The Survolt is powered by a pair of electric motors with a combined power output of 300 bhp (220 kW). Its top speed is 260 km/h (160 mph), and it can accelerate from 0–100 km/h (62 mph) in less than 5 seconds. Citroën claims that the batteries provide a range of 200 km (120 mi).
Although it has not been confirmed that the Survolt will ever be produced, there are rumors that Citroën wants to create a limited-production of a compact-sized concept based on this car, and start a one-make racing series.
The DS Survolt makes an appearance in Asphalt 6: Adrenaline (as the Citroën Survolt), Asphalt 8: Airborne and GT Racing 2, all of which are mobile racing games by Gameloft. The Survolt is also on a mobile, or Facebook, racing game called Racing Rivals by Glu Mobile. It is also available on Driveclub for PlayStation 4 as a free downloadable content.
The British automobile test driving show Top Gear has driven the car around their famous test track and has given it high marks except for the fact that it is exceptionally hard to climb in and out of.
