Citroën Metropolis Concept
Citroën Metropolis is a concept car designed in China by Citroën and presented on the French pavilion of the Expo 2010 in Shanghai. It was unveiled in May 2010.
The Metropolis combines smooth surfaces, taut lines and sleek curves with strong features like a powerful front wing that gives the car an even more distinctive character.
Full-electric mode is used when you start driving, in the city, at low speeds and when you decelerate. It relies on an electric motor that can raise its output from 55 bhp (40kW) to a peak of 95 bhp (70kW).
The combustion mode is used when you're cruising on the open road or the motorway, and the V6 2.0l (272 bhp) petrol engine performs at maximum efficiency.
The over-boost function combines the electric and combustion modes to give you extra power when you accelerate, delivering up to 460 bhp in four-wheel drive mode when you need more grip.
