Citroën has unveiled a world premiere, a month before the celebration of the International Motor Show in Paris, the new CXperience Concept saloon, which incorporates a petrol plug-in hybrid powertrain and the Citroën Advanced Comfort program.
This concept car was revealed during the world convention for the launch of the new C3, with the presence of 2.000 representatives of the brand.
This saloon, created at the company's design center in Vélizy (France), has an exterior length of 4,85 meters, while its width is 2 meters, its height, 1,37 meters, and its distance between axes, 3 meters.
The CXperience Concept features a prominent front end with piloted air intakes in the bumper that increase aerodynamics, while on each side there are movable flaps that also improve airflow.
Inside, the single-sided steering wheel, the horizontal floating dashboard and also the seats stand out. In addition, the brand has guided the design of the model based on the Citroën Advanced Comfort program that seeks to make the car the user's “second home”.
Along these lines, this concept car incorporates a 19-inch panoramic screen that is located as the vehicle's control center, which also has a specific support for a smartphone and a tablet for rear passengers.
The new CXperience Concept mounts a plug-in hybrid propulsion system that combines a gasoline engine with powers of 150 to 200 horsepower with an electric one of 107 horsepower, reaching a total accumulated power of 300 horsepower. The car uses an eight-speed electrified automatic gearbox.
Thanks to this propulsion system, the model can travel up to 60 kilometers in electric mode. The battery recharges in four and a half hours with a standard device and in two and a half hours with a 6,6 kilowatt solution.
