New Concept Car Is Citroen’s Vision Of Comfort, Features AI, Electric Powertrain

Citroen’s centenary celebrations continue with the introduction of yet another concept car at Vivatech in Paris, France, on May 16.

The yet-unnamed show car has been previewed by an official teaser, which doesn’t divulge anything important apart from a different logo, inspired by the one used at the brand’s beginnings in 1919.

Described as Citroen’s “vision of ultra-comfort and full electric”, the new study promises to “bring motorists a unique traveling experience on board a 100 percent electric and autonomous object featuring artificial intelligence”. The car is thus packed with technology that will be used in the French brand’s future production vehicles.

The concept will be presented alongside the Ami One Concept, which premiered at last month’s Geneva Motor Show. The Ami One is smaller than the Smart ForTwo, has room for two occupants and a range of 100 km (62 miles) provided by a lithium-ion battery that can be fully charged in just two hours.

Like the yet-to-be-revealed concept, the Ami One is also bristling with tech. It has a unique sound signature that changes based on speed, doors that can be unlocked using a QR code and a head-up projection panel that allows users to interact with it. Alternatively, they can also use voice commands or a smartphone. The Ami One has been designed as an alternative both to public transport as well electric scooters and bicycles.

Citroen will also present other innovations, such as the Seetroen anti-travel sickness glasses and the Citroenist editorializer, a platform that facilitates “the access of media companies to the right information” – whatever that means. Guess we’ll find out next month.
