The photo is a little too grainy for our liking; nevertheless, we’ll take it any way we can get it. From what we’ve gathered, the photo looks a lot like the production version of the new Citroen C-Cactus , which company officials have said will go out on the market in 2012.
The cute and compact vehicle will come with a 1.4 HDi diesel engine that has been carefully tagged with its own electric motor, with rumors also circulating that Citroen is in the works for an all-electric version down the road. After debuting at the Frankfurt Motor Show a few years back, Citroen has spent the better part of two years developing a production version of the car that would be both affordable and eco-friendly. Though it took longer than we all expected, it looks like Citroen has finally reaped the fruits of its labor.
Whether or not it translates to positive sales won’t be determined until a couple of years. Then again, progress is as progress gets.
