Firm will unveil a new electric concept car next month; it's set to feature autonomous and artificial intelligence technology
23 April 2019

Citroën has confirmed that it will unveil a new future-thinking concept car next month. 

Marking 100 years of the French firm's existence, the as-yet-unnamed model will follow the Ami One, shown at last month’s Geneva motor show. While that previewed a low-cost, quadricycle-class city car, the new concept is expected to be full-sized.

It will be unveiled in the coming weeks, just ahead of its public debut at an innovation event in Paris called VivaTech on 16 May. Few details have been released, but Citroën calls it a “100% electric and autonomous object featuring artificial intelligence”.

It also claims the concept “symbolises ultra-comfort and offers a unique travelling experience on board". Expect a more outlandish exterior look as a preview of the firm’s future, too, with the promise of “exceptional styling”.

Citroën also intends to use VivaTech to showcase PSA’s mobility brand, Free2Move, which explores transport solutions both inside and outside cities. The Ami One will also reappear as Citroën uses every opportunity it can to showcase a century of its innovation.

These centenial teasers from Citroen remind me of the closing credits sequence from the old Thunderbirds series, you know, close up of a section of a particular model which then twists and pans away fron to reveal the Thunderbird craft in question.  

I have no idea what this concept will look like, but the picture is genuinely intriguing.

The car-buying public gets what it deserves, unfortunately ...

The way the once great marque of Citroen has been going for the last 20 years I m not holding out much hope that it ll be any good, sadly.

XXXX just went POP.

An autonomous object? Oh goody. I can feel my pulse racing already.

The Mon Ami was excellent, and Citroen is on a styling roll.  Looking forward to the reveal.
