At the traditional Paris Rétromobile Show in 2016, Citroën presented the successor to its classic Méhari called E-MEHARI.
Thirty years after the end of its production, the heir to the Méhari takes up some of the fundamental aspects for which its predecessor stood out since it is a modular four-seater convertible with plastic bodywork in striking tones.
To this he adds a one hundred percent electric motor with a Lithium Metal Polymer (LMP) battery developed by the Bolloré Group "in accordance with the mentality and use of the model," according to the French brand.
The original Méhari arrived on the market in 1968 manufactured under the platform of the Dyane 6, standing out for its modularity, a design with striking colors, surprising, fresh and simple and an ABS plastic body that lightened its weight and made it insensitive to corrosion. Production of the Méhari, of which 145.000 units were made, lasted until 1987.
The E-MEHARI was exhibited at the Citröen booth at the Porte de Versailles Fairgrounds along with other models of the brand provided by collectors' clubs such as the C6, the Traction Avant, the 2CV Comercial or the CX.
