Electric Citroen E-Mehari Explained – Video
Citroën today is launching New Citroën E-MEHARI. Fifty years after its inspirational older sister, it boasts more modernity and has gained a new design consistent with the Brand’s styling cues.
Recognisable through its expressive gaze formed by two-tier lights – a design specific to Citroën models –New Citroën E-MEHARI affirms its personality and optimism. Its pure and uninhibited body styling make it a fun and playful four-seater cabriolet that keeps all the spirit and iconic design of the 1968 Méhari. The new model’s singular body design, inspired by the world of leisure, has been enhanced by wing and sill panel extensions and black bumpers. The gloss front and rear bumpers are now solid-dyed in the same colour as the body. The free-spirited model also features distinctive 15’’ Give Me Five Alloy Wheels in a new, non-diamond-cut Grey colour. Lastly, consistent with the current range, the tailgate and grille of New Citroën E-MEHARI feature the new black chevrons.
The new model’s cabin has also been totally revamped by the Citroën Styling teams. New Citroën E-MEHARI boasts a redesigned dashboard with emphatically horizontal styling offering a real sense of space on board. It also sports new body-coloured trim on the passenger side, surrounding the air vents and underlining the modern feel. For extra comfort, New Citroën E-MEHARI is equipped with a three-spoke steering wheel and new, more visually welcoming seats. The fully renewed interior styling of New Citroën E-MEHARI also brings motorists an environment less susceptible to dirt through its new black design scheme and additional storage spaces ingeniously positioned on the central console and door panels. Further nods to the world of travel include the strap decorating the dashboard insert and the straps on the door handles. All these upgrades contribute to a true generational leap that boosts perceived quality inside.
Ever more efficient, silent and respectful of the environment, New Citroën E-MEHARI features a 100% electric drive train. It is powered by a latest-generation lithium metal polymer LMP® battery based on the French expertise of the Bolloré group, impervious to weather variations and tested over more than 150 million kilometres.
New Citroën E-MEHARI benefits from the drive-train upgrade. It now reaches a top speed of 110 km/h, boasts extra vivacity, thanks to a near 20% increase in engine torque, reaching 166 Nm up to 3,700 rpm and 140 Nm beyond, and brings motorists an all-new zero-emission and zero-noise driving experience.
It has a certified combined range of 195 km according to the NEDC standard (New European Driving Cycle) and can be fully charged in 10.5 hours with a 16A system at special facilities (household terminals or public terminals such as Autolib’) or in 16.5 hours via 10A household sockets.
