The Citroen Mehari is Powered By a Lithium-Metal Battery Pack

The Citroen Mehari is a vehicle that proves that it is not just possible, but even desirable to take a cute little gas-powered vehicle and convert it into a technologically impressive electric motor-equipped car.

This vehicle is sent motoring along by a 30-kWh lithium-metal polymer battery pack that is capable of offering as much as 200 km of city range. This range is healthy enough to make it possible to use this vehicle for a variety of purposes within the urban commuter space.

This vehicle gets rid of the spacious, wide-open cabin that was one of the highlights of the gas concept car. This design change as well as the introduction of the electric motor is proof that production vehicles don't have to exactly ape concept vehicles, but can take the technology forward.
