After the huge success of the Citroen C4 Cactus, the French manufacturers have created a new Cactus concept car that will be unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show this month. The new concept has been given the name M, inspired by the Mehari and has a bold, bright personality like its sibling.
The Citroen Cactus M has leisure at its heart and has been designed to inspire freedom and escape. The M is an open-air crossover that has the same quirky looks at the C4 Cactus with the added extra of a completely open cabin. The wings are sculpted around the wheel arches for a more compact, muscular look. The upright windscreen, raised body and large wheels underline its personality as a leisure vehicle. Along the sides, the large plastic doors add a lightweight, protective touch, giving the vehicle its signature look. The design of the cabin has been inspired by the world of surfing with the seats designed with a bright neoprene waterproof fabric similar to wetsuits. There is even a rear arch that allows passengers to carry wakeboards and surfboards.
The Cactus M has also been designed for all terrains so that passengers can take off to any location at any time. There is a Grip Control function that optimises traction for a comfortable ride anywhere. There is also the option of turning the cabin into a couchette with a roof that can be made into a tent. The inflatable roof features an innovative operating mechanism and provides welcome protection in the event of rain.
The Citroen Cactus M will be on display at the Frankfurt Motor Show which takes placed from the 17-25th September.
