Citroen Metropolis


As Brian has mentioned earlier Citroen is really coming together and producing some stunning cars lately, and the Metropolis can definitely be added to the bunch. When we think of streched limousines here in the US our thoughts go towards, Lincolns, Benz and Maybachs and not Citroens, but the french automakers are ready to break some ground with this new Metropolis. It’s currently just a concept car and is due to be unveiled next month at the Shanghai Motor show, right after the Beijing expo where BMW is to debut their new 5-series and the Audi with the new A8 L. However, the Metropolis is said to be even bigger and longer than any of these cars, streching a whole 5.3 meters in length, 2 meter is width and 1.4 meters high. The Citroen Metropolis is power by a hybrid powertrain featuring a 2-litre V6 petrol engine developing 272bhp (200kW) and 375Nm of torque and an electric motor with 95bhp (70kW). The company says that when both, the combustion engine and the electric motor are in use, the Citroen Metropolis develops 460bhp (345kW) and 430Nm of torque. This means that the power units of the Citroen Metropolis, when working together, output more than their added performance.
