Developed by Citroën in partnership with Espera Sbarro Design School, the Cruise Crosser is an all-terrain concept vehicle with six wheels on three axles and a hybrid powertrain.
Citroën has teamed up with the world famous Espera Sbarro School to develop the remarkable Cruise Crosser all-terrain concept car. A vehicle to tackle the roughest possible road and weather conditions, the Cruise Crosser will be unveiled on the Espera Sbarro stand at this year's Geneva Motor Show (06-18 March).

Based on Citroën's first SUV, the C‑Crosser, that will also make its world debut at Geneva, prior to going on sale later this year, this new concept features three axles and six wheels to provide outstanding traction to tackle even the harshest of off‑road conditions.

The Cruise Crosser invokes the spirit of the early 1900s when André Citroën, the Company's founder, captivated the world with a series of adventurous automotive expeditions across Africa and Asia, including the first motor crossing of the Sahara in 1922.

Despite its imposing looks, the Cruise Crosser also displays strong green credentials. To minimise its impact on the environment, a hybrid drivetrain combines a conventional diesel engine with an electric motor located under the rear floor to cut fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. And when the electric third axle is used alone, it is even possible to drive silently in 'Zero Emission Vehicle' mode.

With its intense orange body work the Cruise Crosser is hard to miss, while the large red compasses located on either side of the vehicle reinforce the cars 'go anywhere' attitude. The vibrant exterior colour scheme is echoed throughout the interior, in the contours of the leather seats in rows one and two, on the dash and on the door panels.

The spacious Cruise Crosser has enough room at the back to provide extra seating, with a removable third row, or to create a vast loading area to carry equipment. The tailgate design makes loading easier, sand boards are stored at the rear to help extricate the vehicle from any tricky situations, while step plates on either side of the car offer easy access to the rear compartment. The Cruise Crosser also features an advanced satellite navigation system and DVD player to make long journeys more enjoyable.

Citroën and the Espera Sbarro School have a long history of working together designing and developing concept cars. Founded by Franco Sbarro in 1992, the Espera Sbarro School offers young car enthusiasts the chance to discover the automobile trade. Students learn about different aspects including design, bodywork and mechanics and are encouraged to be creative.


Шестиколесный концепт – дитя школы Espero Sbarro. В его основе – ностальгические воспоминания о подвигах ранних Citroen 20-х и 30-х годов прошлого века в песках Африки. Автомобиль движется благодаря дизельно-гибридной силовой установке неописанной конструкции, известно только то, что электромотор располагается сзади и приводит в движение последний мост. На большой грузовой платформе располагается съемный ряд сидений и мягкий верх. Автомобиль вполне подходит и для комфортной жизни на обитаемых территориях – у него кожаный салон и все современные средства создания комфорта, не исключая климат-контроля, навигации и DVD-плейера.


Кузовное ателье Sbarro построило шестиколесный пикап на базе Citroen C-Crosser. Этот шоукар является данью памяти пробегу Croisiere Noire, который проходил в 1924 году от Мыса Доброй Надежды до Парижа и спонсировался самим Андре Ситроеном. Спросишь, почему же Sbarro выбрало такую необычную машину для «дани»? Дело в том, что во время того пробега 83-летней давности компания Citroen испытывала как раз трехосный шестиколесный пикап.
