Citroen’s SpaceTourer Citroenist Concept Is Leisure-Focused

Citroen unveiled this unique SpaceTourer concept ahead of this year’s Geneva Motor Show and brought it over to the Swiss Alps so we could take a better look at it.

The vehicle was developed in partnership with Martone Cycling and comes with a limited edition “bicycle blending functionality”, as well as the Rider The Citroenist by Martone bicycle, wearing the same white, red and black colors as the van.

Bespoke inside-out

Inside the SpaceTourer The Citroenist Concept (bit of a mouthful), you’ll find a special layout designed by Possl, offering two berths, storage for bikes and even a built-in connected office where you can work or relax while watching a movie.

If you’re an outdoor enthusiast, you’ll probably be most interested in the bike, which is made of a steel and aluminum alloy and weighs just 12 kg (26.4 lbs). Its black wheels measure 700 mm x 32 mm and feature stainless steel hubs and puncture-resistant tires. Other specs include the manual three-speed gear system by Sturmey-Archer, the Citroenist logo for the saddle and cross bar, and the Citroen Origins logo, which is positioned on the handle bars and was created in celebration of the French automaker’s 100th birthday.

We should mention though that this is not a trail bike. It doesn’t have a suspension system, nor off-road tires. So it’s not recommend for anybody riding in the woods or over any type of rough terrain.

The ‘Rider The Citroenist by Martone’ bicycle is available in two sizes (52 cm and 56 cm), and is said to be good for both everyday rides as well as leisure activities. Interested parties can even order one themselves for €950 ($1,073), either from Citroen’s stand in Geneva, or online here.
