Citroën’s Survolt all-electric racing car concept will make its dynamic UK debut as part of The Prince of Wales’ Start Eco Car Spectacular, which will be held on The Mall, in the shadow of Buckingham Palace, on Sunday 12th September, 2010.

The Start Eco Car Spectacular will see parades of some of the most environmentally considerate vehicles piloted by a line-up of eco-conscious celebrities including Kevin McCloud, Roger Saul, Ellen MacArthur, Quentin Willson, Gabi Roslin and Dragons’ Den stars Duncan Bannatyne and James Caan. The sensational Citroën Survolt will join an exciting cross-section of eco-vehicles, giving members of the British public the first opportunity to see the car in action.

Extremely rare in the world of racing, Survolt’s full electric drivetrain combines dynamic, sporting performance with environmental consideration. Specially developed with compact dimensions and a light-weight frame (1.15 tonnes), Survolt features a tubular chassis, a flat underside with extractor and full carbon bodywork, all combining to make a genuine emissions-free, all-electric racing car.

Propelled by two electric motors with a combined power of 300bhp, Survolt is capable of exceptional performance with a top speed of 260kph (162mph) and a 0-100kph (0-62mph) time of under five seconds. The concept’s twin 140kg lithium-ion batteries each boast a 31kw capacity, which allows Survolt to cover 200km (124 miles).
