User-friendly technology:

  • A Hybrid Air drivetrain for economic running costs and reduced environmental footprint
  • Intuitive connectivity, including access to the Citroën Multicity Connect portal
  • The origins of Citroën Cactus began with the C-Cactus concept car, which premiered at the 2007 Frankfurt show.

C-Cactus was a radical automotive approach that posed a number of key questions: What do motorists expect from cars in today’s world? And which equipment and features really count? The exercise pushed engineers and designers to make sweeping changes and explore new solutions to motoring challenges. The pragmatic approach avoided the unessential to concentrate on what makes motorists feel good. The end result is the Citroën Cactus – a concept car which previews future models in the C-line.
