Citroën Citela – 1992. Chronic congestion and problematic parking due to our ever-expanding population and urbanisation is sadly nothing new. Back in the 1990’s, with Paris suffering heavily from these urban pressures, French car manufacturers took up the challenge of building a car to suit every need and help alleviate some of the more pertinent problems. One such concept car, was Citroën’s modular Citela (Citroën Electric Automobile). Unveiled in the French pavilion at the Universal Exposition of Seville in 1992, the Citela was Citroën’s response to Renault’s own electric folding ‘Zoom’, which was revealed just a couple of months earlier. The Citela had an ace up its sleeve though, as it was able to be transformed from a coupé to a mini estate or a pickup truck thanks to its modular detachable passenger cell that, according to the carmaker, could be achieved in as little as five minutes.
