Citroen took the brave decision to name their headlining concept car at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show, the Revolte.

The unusual design is likely have just as many admirers as haters, and each camp has a point. But one thing can be said of the Revolte, it's original. One of the more bizarre features of the concept are the A-pillars which seem to bust out of the bodywork separate to the windscreen. Personally I think it's a creative idea and suits the quirky nature of the vehicle.

The dark-colored a-pillar also acts as a starting point for a style line which encircles side windows and doors and runs towards the front wheel, nearly creating a complete loop. This feature also cleverly helps to disguise the fact the Revolte is a four door vehicle. The front doors open in a conventional manner, while the back doors are hinged at the rear. The lack of any B-pillars means that when both doors are open access to the interior is completely unhindered.

Inspired by the 2CV the REVOLTe takes the key attributes of Citroën’s iconic classic and reverses them. In Citroen's own words: "Where the 2CV was plain and neutral, REVOLTe is luxurious and colourful; where the 2CV was basic and simple, REVOLTe is intelligent and technologically advanced and where the 2CV was slow and bouncy, REVOLTe is lively and spirited."

Influences from past Citroen models can be seen in the convertible roof panel which slides back to expose the almost the entire interior to sunlight. The contrasting color of the roof is carried over into the panel underneath the rear window providing a bold contemporary look.

The interior of the Citroen REVOLTe concept is as adventurous as the exterior. The styling is distinctly futuristic, but somehow the sharp, crisp lines, and almost painfully thin looking seats don't quite match the bubbly outward appearance of the concept.

Powering the Citroen REVOLTe is a hybrid drivetrain which uses a small-diplacement internal combustion engine as a generator to charge the batteries, which in turn power an electric motor. This system also provides the option of CO2-free driving with the ability to run in all-electric ZEV (Zero Emission Vehicle) mode.
