After Citroen announced that the GTbyCitroen will not make it to production, the French company is now focusing on a production version for the Survolt and the Metropolis concepts. In an interview with AutoCar PSA design boss Jean-Pierre Ploué said: "We cannot afford to let the likes of Audi, Mercedes and BMW forge into Citroën’s heartland supermini territory without fighting back and pushing into theirs. Selling large luxury cars in Europe is not easy at the moment, but I believe Citroën has a great deal more to bring to the market."

The Survolt is an electric sports car that sprints from 0 to 60 mph in less than 5 seconds and can hit a top speed of 162 mph.

The Citroen Metropolis is a big luxury sedan with a wheelbase bigger than both the Audi A8 or Mercedes S-Class. It is powered by a hybrid drivetrain that combines a 2.0-liter V6 engine with an output of 272bhp and 277lb ft and an electric motor that develops from 55bhp to 95bhp.

Saying that we are excited to see these two cars make it into production is kind of an understatement. Electric cars are the future and the fact that these two vehicles are super sleek and sexy is an absolute bonus.

So, what’s the development on the production? Any ideas on its sales performance? I have to check it personally to see if these cars are really worth buying.

Soon the city streets will be filled with good and futuristic looking cars.

No offense,but I don’t like the design that they have made in the front hood of Survolt and it doesn’t look futuristic too. When I first saw it I remember “batman car”, looks old-fashioned.

Really nice design, and is it just me or does it resemble an Audi R8? Do I dare say it also resembles the Veyron?

great looking nimble sports car from Citroen, i bet those front lip can generate enough drag to make the car hug the concrete or tarmac
