Citroen Technospace Concept foreshadows future people mover

Citroen took the wraps off of the Technospce Concept that is said to foreshadow the upcoming production C4 Picasso model. The Technospace uses Citroen's new modular platform and should set new standards for European MPVs (minivans) in terms of space utiliaztion, efficiency, and low CO2 emissions. The Technospcae includes a 12"inch screen on the dash and has a complete suite of nre technologies and luxury materials. There is practically no chance that this latest Citroen will be seen on this side of the pond, but with today's penchant for coroporate "hook-ups," you never know. The production version of the new C4 Picasso Technospace will hit Euro dealers this summer. Brief release after the jump.

CITROËN TECHNOSPACE: Creative design and onboard technology

After unveiling the exterior of the CITROËN TECHNOSPACE, CITROËN is now revealing the interior of the concept car.

Like the outside, the inside of the CITROËN TECHNOSPACE ushers in a new era. It features all the strong points that have made CITROËN a recognised player in the MPV segment, namely space, brightness and class-leading visibility. But the cabin stands out most of all through its “loft” spirit, with a pared-down atmosphere, top-quality materials and a host of technologies to increase the well-being of motorists, including a fully touch-sensitive driving interface with a panoramic 12-inch high-definition screen and a “Relax” seat for the front passenger.

The concept car previews the new CITROËN C4 PICASSO, set for launch in the second half of 2013. The model will mark a new phase in CITROËN’s momentum and shake up the codes in the MPV sector with:
- record low CO2 emissions of 98 g/km, achieved through the new Efficient Modular Platform 2 (EMP2) combining efficient architecture and optimised mass;

- all-new proportions blending compact design (L: 4.43m / W: 1.83m / H: 1.61 m), best-in-class cabin space and standard-setting boot capacity (537 litres VDA);

- strong and expressive styling with dynamic lines and high-tech headlamps together with 3D-effect rear lights inspired by the Brand’s latest concept cars.

The CITROËN TECHNOSPACE concept car will be presented at the Geneva Motor Show.
