Citroen Survolt electric race car to make its debut at Le Mans Classic |

The Citroen Survolt electric vehicle concept impressed a lot of people when it was revealed at the beginning of the year.

Now, it seems that Citroen really wants to make the Survolt stand out even more, and has announced that the electric model will be driven at the famous Le Mans Classic race, set to start on July 10th.

In case you forgot, the Survolt electric race car (pictured above while preparing for the Le Mans event) uses two motors, capable of a combined output of 300 HP. When you combine the impressive power figure with the carbon fiber bodywork and the low weight of the tubular steel chassis, you get a proper race car, even if it is an electric one.

According to Citroen, the Survolt is capable of sprinting from 0 to 62 mph in under five seconds, and up to 162 mph. Thanks to the two battery packs, the Survolt can cover 124 miles on a single charge. Its recharge times vary from 2 hours, with a special charger, or 10 hours, from a regular 220-volt socket.
