Citroen C-Metisse Concept

Unveiled at the 2006 Paris Motor Show, the Citroen C-Metisse Concept car was inspired by passion and reason. With its flowing proportions, flamboyant red bodywork, spectacular door-opening design and premium-material cabin, this stand-out 4-seater 4-door coupe revives a passion for the most prestigious Grand Tourers.

C-Metisse knowingly blends automotive emotion and sensation with ecological principles. The concept car's diesel hybrid drivetrain, optimised aerodynamics and limited weight give it racer-like performance - 0 to 100 km/h in 6.2 seconds and 1km in 25.4 seconds - combined with low fuel economy (6.5 l/100km over a combined cycle) and CO2 emissions (174g/km).

Citroën is unveiling C-Métisse at the 2006 Paris Motor Show. Through this concept car, inspired by passion and reason, the Marque is exploring new paths dedicated to automotive pleasure. C-Métisse is a coupé of character, boasting a high level of on-board comfort and performance, while also respecting the environment.

With its elegant proportions, flamboyant bodywork, spectacular door design and extensive chrome, this elegant 4-seater 4-door coupe revives a passion for the most prestigious Grand Touring vehicles.

C-Métisse is not only a car to stir the soul of the onlooker. It also boasts real driving sensations with a driving position featuring the latest technologies, and a specially designed high-performance diesel hybrid drivetrain.

C-Métisse is based on the same future-oriented solution as the C4 HDi hybrid demonstration vehicle presented by Citroën at the start of the year apart from one key difference:  the electric motors are installed in the rear wheels. This configuration is coherent with vehicle performance and optimises traction. Perfectly suited to the character of C-Métisse, the design reflects Citroën's expertise in the various hybrid architectures, as well as demonstrating its commitment to cutting fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
