Citroën unveils 19_19 EV idea

Following the reveal of the Ami One Idea as a imaginative and prescient for city electrical mobility, Citroën is presenting the 19_19 Idea, expressing Citroën’s imaginative and prescient of ultra-comfort and prolonged mobility to flee from the cities. The 19_19 Idea is a full-electric idea automobile with a spread of 800 km (497 miles), a real magic carpet journey with a suspended cabin outfitted with suspension with Progressive Hydraulic Cushions mixed with good lively management, and options autonomous driving applied sciences and a proactive private assistant that interacts unprompted with the passengers. The 19_19 Idea will probably be revealed as a World Premiere at VivaTech in Paris on 16 Might 2019. The 19_19 Idea is powered by an all-electric drive practice. 19_19 accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 5 seconds and reaches a prime pace of 200 km/h. Powered by 100 kWh batteries, the 4WD drive practice comprising two motors (one on the entrance, one on the rear) develops torque of 800 N·m, with complete energy of 340 kW. 19_19 Idea options fast charging expertise (with 600 km of vary recovered in 20 minutes). For trouble- and cable-free charging, 19_19 Idea is provided with an induction charging system whereby the batteries are in a position to cost instantly whereas driving the place the street infrastructure so permits. The 19_19 Idea is essentially impressed by aviation. The physique design of 19_19 Idea resembles the fuselage of an plane and the clear bubble of a helicopter. The capsule levitates above 4 “Tremendous Tall and Slender” wheels. With the 4 wheels set squarely on the far corners of the physique, the 19_19 Idea includes a three.10 m wheelbase that makes room for an outsized battery. The cabin seems to drift above the 4 wheels, the suspension forming the interface and hyperlink between the cabin and the wheels. The idea automobile options an modern suspension with Progressive Hydraulic Cushions and a sensible lively management system. The suspension system is seen and signified, showcased throughout the cabin. The 19_19 Idea includes a clear double hood that channels a present of air in direction of the windshield, additional enhancing aerodynamics. The brief higher hood serves as a spoiler and as a medium for the sunshine signature, within the type of two traces of sunshine in a “Y form”, according to the Model’s most up-to-date idea automobiles, CXperience and Ami One Idea. The subframe on the 19_19 Idea was designed like a skateboard, as a intentionally seen technical platform house to the electrical batteries and all of the technical parts. Totally streamlined, the subframe contains aerodynamic appendices and piping to optimize air circulate, in addition to an array of sensors and radars helpful to the operation of the car. On the rear, underneath the cabin, the stem form enhances aerodynamics by closing the air circulate, impressed by the rudder of an airplane. The 19_19 Idea was created to make driving simpler in all driving circumstances. Outfitted with superior autonomous driving applied sciences, 19_19 Idea can take over and handle car management routinely, enabling drivers to get on with different, non-driving associated occupations. However when the motive force takes again management, as a result of the street infrastructure so requires or as a result of they merely need to benefit from the driving expertise, the system was designed to make driving simpler and convey drivers higher security and peace of thoughts.
