0 points

This Dramatically Insane Citroen CXPerience Concept is the Citroen’s Star on Display at the Paris Motor Show 2016

French car manufacturer, PSA group is showcasing a world premiere at Paris Motor Show with the Citroen CXPerience Concept.

As a matter of fact, this cool looking concept is a cutting-edge plug-in hybrid.

The company claims it to be the fulfillment of ‘Be Different, Feel Good’ promise in the large sedan segment.

There are some reservations about PSA’s choice of yellowish color for the seats. However, the seats seem to be truly comfortable.

The seats are accessible through giant suicide doors – a feature that only appears in a concept car, and is surely not going into the final production.

Yellowish Fresh Citrus Optimism

The rear doors are hinged on the rear edge, and open backward to show off the stunning interior. However the front doors open forward in a conventional manner. While open, the doors make a full 90-degree angle with respect to the bodywork.

Turning to the interior, citrus yellow fabric inset creates a fresh optimistic feel. The backrests and the dashboard feature textured walnut wood which adds to the elegance of the ambiance.

As can be seen, right in the middle of the dashboard, there is a large 19-inch rectangular touchscreen. Working as the car control center, this screen manages the onboard functions such as navigation and air conditioning.

Plug-in Hybrid Powertrain

Power comes from a plug-in hybrid powertrain, consisting of a gasoline engine and an electric motor. The former produces between 150 and 200 bhp, while the latter provides additional energy of 80 kW.

In the city, Citroën CXPerience Concept can switch to all-electric-mode with a range of 60 km.

However, on the open road, the integration of the two forms of energy coming from the combustion engine and electric motor, minimizes the fuel consumption.

And finally, on the motorway, the combustion engine becomes dominant, generating a total power of 300 bhp.
