After releasing arguably one of the most straight-forward press releases in the auto industry, Citroen bared its Frankfurt Auto Show plans and a big part of it will be the Cactus Concept , a car that has turned to be better than we previously thought.
After all the details of the Cactus Concept were bared, we couldn’t help by wonder how much of all the new technology, including the highly advertised "Air Bump" bumpers, will translate into the production model.
An indication of this technology seems points to bumpers that absorb the kind of damage that would’ve messed up any other bumper. The accompanying video after the jump even does a demonstration, although how much help the phrase "touch me" does when you accidentally touch your own monitor is a little misleading — you feel even worse when you realize that your monitor is not a touchscreen...
We’re guessing technology like ’Airbumps’ was what Citroen was aiming for when it said that it was embracing a “Pure, Simple, Smart" philosophy.
