FRANKFURT -- Citroen will preview a potential new model inspired by its iconic Mehari utility vehicle at the Frankfurt auto show next month. The concept will be based on the C4 Cactus compact.
In a statement, Citroen said the concept was a "fresh and invigorating" version of the C4 Cactus that "revisits the spirit of the legendary Mehari.”
Citroen CEO Linda Jackson told Automotive News Europe in June that the company was mulling a revival of the open-top Mehari sold between 1968 and 1987.
Jackson has previously said that the C4 Cactus will influence future models in the brand's lineup. The distinctive car, which went on sale last year, has underlined Citroen's intent to be the fun brand in PSA/Peugeot-Citroen's lineup.
