1995 Peugeot Tulip
The Tulip was PSA"s vision of the future in 1995
The Tulip was an attempt to create the ultimate electric city car capable of seating two people in comfort. Developed between Peugeot and Citroen, the Tulip was equipped with an electronic ventilation and heating system, which automatically adjusted the interior temperature according to the current temperature. With a top speed of 46 miles per hour, the Tulip was mainly controlled by a remote control resembling a telephone. The remote opened and
closed the sliding doors, and toggled other functions.
In 1995 in the French city of Tours, trials began of a new form of urban transport; environmentally friendly and above all, a viable alternative to the internal combustion powered cars that clog our cities and pollute their air.
Combining the best features of public and private transport, no Tulip is actually owned by any one driver. Instead, you subscribe to the service and when you need a car, you either ’phone and reserve one or you go to your nearest Tulip rank. A roof mounted lamp tells you whether the car is in service or being recharged.
Powered by a 9,6kW electric motor, the Tulip has a top speed of 70 kph and a range of 80 km.
Tulip has been seen wearing both Citroën and Peugeot badges
