Here’s the new Citroen E-Mehari, an electric vehicle they call an ‘image accelerator’. Automotive News did the initial report.
Citroen’s own press site is still reporting on their tie-up with Toyota though. The E-Mehari is a reskin of the Bollore Bluesummer – made in the same plant – and takes some of its styling cues from the C-Cactus. Like Fiat, one model seems to be defining the look of the brand, which was perhaps not expected when they launched the C-Cactus.
The headlamps on the Citroen are more refined and the window frame looks to be the same part. I wonder what Bollore think? It depends on the price. I expect the Citroen will cost a bit more as it has fancier lamps and more parts (note the black cladding). Perhaps this will sell in southern Europe as a hotel tender-vehicle or a little runabout on small islands catering for holiday-makers.
