Citroën C-Cactus Concept

I don’t think there could be anymore C’s in the title of this post, haha…
Anyhow, the images above are one of Citroën’s new concept vehicles (yes, I’m teasing with another concept car) dubbed the C-Cactus. Physically it reminds me of cross between a Mini and Volkswagen’s Touareg, but sent from the future.

My absolute favorite part is the huge windows. When I was a little kid I used to draw cars that were basically bubbles so you could see in all directions. This is basically what my 8 year old self would have wanted. I also really like the details in the head and tail lights, and the metallic doors are pretty rad as well. The car is also designed as a hybrid, with a diesel and an electric engine to help with gas mileage. When you’re in the city, you can switch the car into ZEV mode (Zero Emission Vehicle) which relies purely on the electric motor, I’m guessing getting recharged during the times you brake.

Definitely pop over to the C-Cactus’s site and have a peak at more photos and a video showing off the car.
