The Citroen Egoiste is a concept car from designer Ian Kettle that aims to draw attention using its curves. The Citroen Egoiste is electric-powered and features a roof that also acts as the vehicle's door.

The roof of the car pops straight up and is the only way in or out of the vehicle. While this design feature would limit the places you could park the Egoiste, it looks undeniably badass and is sure to draw envious stares from onlookers. A futuristic car has to have futuristic wheels, and Kettle doesn't disappoint, creating rims with a floral pattern.

Electric cars are slowly making their way up the ladder in terms of popularity, but they're still lagging behind hybrids and regular cars in terms of looks and the "wow" factor. The Citroen Egoiste has enough looks to go around, and certainly delivers the emotional qualities that people such as myself have been looking for in an EV. Here's hoping this one goes from concept to reality before I'm too old to safely get behind the wheel.
