The Stunning Citroen E-Mehari Courreges Unveiled in Geneva
Posted in: FEATURE
The annual Geneva Motor Show is a great event for seeing lots of exciting new motoring concepts before they hit the streets.
This year, one of the most interesting models to get unveiled was the stunning looking Citroen E-Mehari Courreges. This is a funkier version of the standard E-Mehari, which was put into production at the start of 2016.The last part of the name comes from the fact that it was designed by the French fashion design firm Courreges.
The first thing to stand out about this particular model is the sheer whiteness of it all. White is used just about everywhere on the E-Mehari Courreges. Even the wheels are white, with a dash of orange for contrast. The whiteness continues inside the car, with some more orange contrasts here and there on the dashboard and the air vents.
It has a cool single spoke monochrome steering wheel and the leather floor has mats on it that are, perhaps unsurprisingly, white. The Plexiglas roof has a delicate frosted finish and there is even a white and orange luggage set that has been designed to accompany it. Additionally, the rear hoop from the standard model has been replaced by side straps.
A 124 Mile Range
The Citroen E-Mehari Courreges is an electric vehicle that has been designed above all for city use. The driving range in the city is said to be up to 124 miles (200 km). Recharging the battery will take about 13 hours on a standard 10 A domestic hook-up. A 16 A charging station should take closer to 8 hours to recharge it fully.
The unique looks of this vehicle mean that it probably won’t be to everyone’s taste. However, for a trendy looking city car that is sure to turn heads, this is hard to ignore. Citroen are calling it “fun, modern and environmentally friendly”, which is a description that it is difficult to argue with.
