The funky Ami One Concept won’t be Citroën’s only design study at this year’s Geneva Motor Show.
The French automaker will also reveal the awkwardly-named SpaceTourer The Citroënist Concept which apparently was built just so Citroën’s new limited edition bicycle could make a grand entrance at the Geneva Motor Show. The bike is called “Rider the Citroënist by Martone” and inspires the design of the camper.
SpaceTourer The Citroënist Concept envisions a camping vehicle that wears the same colors as the Martone Cycling-developed bike: white (from the frame, saddle, and handlebars), black (tires), and red (chain). The concept vehicle features a special cabin layout developed by Pössl, the German RV specialist that builds the Campster camper based on the Citroën SpaceTourer.
The interior offers two berths, storage for two bikes, and a built-in connected office. To transport the two bicycles that will be presented at the Geneva Motor Show with the concept, the vehicle features a double storage rail on the floor located between the multimedia unit and the rear seats. A total of four people can travel and sleep in the camper, thanks to the additional berth housed under the pop-out roof.
Compared to regular SpaceTourer-based campers modified by Pössl, this study has a higher ground clearance and an all-wheel-drive system created by Automobiles Dangel. Its go-anywhere capabilities are enhanced by the BlueHDi 150 S&S BVM6 engine.
As for the limited edition bicycle, it’s designed for everyday rides and leisure activities. Made of a steel and aluminum alloy, it weighs in at 12 kilograms (26.5 lbs). The black wheels measure 700 mm (27.5 in) x 32 (1.2 in) mm and feature stainless steel hubs and puncture-resistant black tires.
It also comes with a manual three-speed gear system manufactured by Sturmey-Archer. Priced at €950 (about $1,080), it’s available in two sizes (52 cm and 56 cm), each featuring the Citroënist logo on the saddle and crossbar, as well as the Citroën Origins logo on the handlebars.
