Citroën emphasised the consistency of its new look, which is underpinned by the “Inspired By You” brand signature, at the Paris Motor Show 2014 earlier this month.
Citroën showcased a modern and entirely renewed range at the 2018 Paris Motor Show. With six models released in less than two years – each sharing a distinctive and bold design as well as outstanding comfort via the Citroën Advanced Comfort® programme – the brand highlighted the consistency customers can now expect across the range.
As an exciting first step for Citroën in terms of energy transition, New Citroën C5 Aircross SUV Hybrid Concept finally made its global debut.
NEW CITROËN C5 AIRCROSS SUV HYBRID CONCEPT BOASTS AN ELECTRIFYING LIVERY
True to the customisable and distinctive spirit of New C5 Aircross SUV, the concept is offered in a special livery – white, Deep Blue and touches of anodised Electric Blue (front bumper inserts and Airbump® panels, lower section of roof bars), as well as graphic motifs highlighting its electric credentials. The 19-inch ‘Anthracite’ wheels add a dynamic touch. On the rear tailgate, the Hybrid logo marks out the drivetrain.
This two-tone white and blue effect – which is specific to New Citroën C5 Aircross SUV Hybrid Concept – is echoed inside, with beige leather-effect fabric Advanced Comfort seats and a dashboard strip in the same material. Electric blue highlights embellish the top of the seat backs and the dashboard strip, perfectly matching the exterior. The 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and 8-inch central touchscreen reinforce the concept car's exclusive appearance and promotes key driving features in Hybrid mode, combining the best of the combustion and electric engines.
AN ELECTRIC MOBILITY SOLUTION FOR THE CORE MARKET
Citroën aims to offer vehicles suited to everyone’s needs, while contributing to the transition towards alternative energies by expanding the ‘Low Emission Vehicle’ range to the core market.
The future PHEV version of New C5 Aircross SUV – which will go on sale from early 2020 – will be the first PHEV model within the core model strategy. Following New C5 Aircross SUV, all new models launched by the brand will have an electrified version, indicating the brand's commitment to a responsible energy transition.
The concept is for customers looking for a ‘two-in-one’ vehicle, giving them the benefits of ZEV mode in built-up areas and a combustion engine for longer journeys. The rechargeable Hybrid solution is popular with both individuals and companies, often sharing the same need for low running costs – two customer profiles with an interest in the alternative energies and in need of efficient, clean and powerful engines.
THE UNLIMITED COMFORT SUV
Citroën and comfort have a long history together, going back almost 100 years. The design of New C5 Aircross SUV was defined by the Citroën Advanced Comfort® programme. The purpose? To enhance all aspects of comfort, at every stage. New Citroën C5 Aircross SUV Hybrid Concept goes even further by offering modern and technological electric mobility to promote comfort and ease of use. It allows all-electric driving, entirely insulated from the road and the outside world, cocooned in complete tranquillity – with all road imperfections filtered out. The silent motor, the driving pleasure, the smoothness of the suspension, the softness of the Advanced Comfort seats, the ergonomics and ease of use of the interfaces and dedicated services, all contribute to the on-board comfort of the occupants.
RELAXED LONG-RANGE MOBILITY
New Citroën C5 Aircross SUV Hybrid Concept represents a solution for all needs. This use of hybrid technology offers the pleasure of starting up and travelling in silence without releasing a single gram of CO2. There is also the option of driving up to 50km in ZEV mode at speeds of up to 135km/h (NEDC protocol) meaning that the combustion engine is not needed for most daily journeys. ZEV mode also allows access to cities’ low emission zones. Customers do not have to worry about re-charging thanks to the efficient and powerful combustion engine, which will take over when necessary.
