The Citroen 19_19 Concept is an unconventional expression of the future, existing outside traditional automotive cues The 19_19 Concept is a disruptive Citroen manifesto that rewrites the rulebook and illustrates a vision of mobility that is deliberately unconventional, futuristic looking and constraint-free.
Boasting exceptional proportions for the automotive segment - and inspired by the worlds of aviation and interior design - the 19_19 Concept is immediately recognisable through its pure and streamlined shapes, its skilfully worked technological details, and through the various ways in which it can be interpreted.
Taking comfort to a new level, with a cabin constituting a true living room on wheels, the 19_19 Concept pushes the limits of the Citroen Advanced Comfort programme.
The cabin is suspended on a new suspension system with Progressive Hydraulic Cushions combined with smart active control. It features a unique layout influenced by the world of furniture with individual seats, each one expressing a different vision of comfort.
A Personal Assistant is built into the dashboard that various tasks from autonomous driving to anticipating the needs of each passenger The 19_19 Concept is also innovative and futuristic through its autonomous driving technology.
With the help of artificial intelligence, the concept car is equipped with a 'Personal Assistant' built into the dashboard.
It takes control of the vehicle during autonomous driving and interacts with passengers via an intuitive and proactive system that anticipates the needs of each occupant.

Created to offer relaxed transportation, the concept car charges via induction technology where the infrastructure is in place, either when the car is moving or when it is stationary.
