In the ruled Citroën CNG C3We waited for a long time, here is the first hybrid HDi publicly presented by a french manufacturer: Citroen.
The selling price should be reasonable but a worrying uncertainty marketing remains hypothetical.
The C-Cactus was presented in world premiere at the Frankfurt Show 2007.
Citroën has developed a concept of small sedan (4,2 1,8 meters long meters wide) equipped with a hybrid HDi drivetrain for the price of an entry-C4.
Its diesel hybrid powertrain combines a HDi diesel engine of 70 DIN hp (with a particulate filter DPF) and an electric motor providing additional power 30 DIN hp. It displays a consumer 3,4 l / 100 km and a level CO2 emission of 78 g / km. Exceptional performance for a vehicle in its class.
In addition, the C-Cactus uses a high proportion of recycled or recyclable materials.
Citroën announces that if (thus its marketing remains hypothetical) production layout had to be, it does not cost more than a family sedan midrange. This is due to a variety of new materials and a streamlined design that has reduced the number of parts used in short, a return to sobriety (at least apparent)? Just over 200 parts make up the interior of the C-Cactus, nearly two times less than a conventional hatchback of identical size.
Despite its simplicity, many facilities such as automatic air conditioning and a very énergievores premium audio system are integrated (see below) ...
The return to economic car? Hopefully ... if Citroën decides to market one day ...
