Figures...just as we hit the post button on our previous article
regarding CitroŽn's Frankfurt Motor Show surprise, the French
carmaker dropped off the first official photos of its new concept
model named Tubik.
As previously noted, the Tubik pays homage to the 1939 Tub van and its
replacement, the 1948 Type H that was produced up until the beginning
of the 1980s.
The Tubik serves as both a commercial van and a people carrier with
the 4.8 meter long, 2.08m wide and 2.05m tall model providing
comfortable space for nine passengers in three lounge-style seats,
with the driver cocooned in a separated compartment.
CitroŽn says passengers can arrange the three rows of seats as they
wish, since each seat is independent for maximum comfort. The first
row of seats allows two people to sit facing either the road or the
The middle row can seat up to three people or, alternatively, can be
converted into a small table, be folded onto the last row to free up
an area close to 2 square meters, or be folded out completely to
create a meridienne-style seat.
Motivation is provided from the PSA Peugeot-CitroŽn group's new
Hybrid4 full-hybrid diesel drivetrain.
We'll have more on the Tubik soon, but for now, scroll down to check
out the official photos.
