Méhari Eden, soon you’ll be able to have a Méhari authentic with electric motor
The Citroën Mehari was released in 1968, but is more topical than ever. The launch of the Citroën E-Méhari is one of the culprits. Today we return to talk about the Citroën Méhari original because the Club 2 CV Méhari de Cassis (France) has created a prototype electric called Eden on the car beach French. This club is the most important of the world dedicated to these popular models of Citroen, with delegations even in other countries like Spain.
In the general headquarters of the Club in Cassis, a number of people have been working on the development of this Méhari Eden Prototype electric. For out of nothing it makes you think that it is a car electric. Has been used to the greater amount of original parts as possible, giving a touch very lively and cheerful, combining the various colors in both the body as well as the interior.
From the first moment it was clear that he had that maintain the identity of the Méhari intact, so the only aesthetic modifications are some safety belts of three points and a roll cage for safety. But the most important modifications of the Méhari Eden Prototype are at the mechanistic level, since the boxer engine two-cylinder air-cooled, has been replaced by a electric motor. The gearbox four-speed manual remains intact.
has opted for a lithium-ion battery-ferrofosfato that offer the best ratio between performance, reliability and durability. It is sold with two battery packs, one with autonomy for 80 km and another that increases the range to 120 km, enough for a recreational vehicle of this type in coastal areas. The batteries of smaller capacity is charged to 100% in less than three hours.
What is more interesting is that the Club 2 CV Méhari de Cassis has created this vehicle from the ground up as a completely new car with its chassis number and its roles in rule. Have the authorization to do so and therefore have not needed to resort to a Méhari scrapping. The club will make later in life these Méhari electrical for all those customers who want to be with one, though it will first have to be perfect the prototype to the maximum.
