What's remarkable is that the car panels are made using recycled materials and are coated with Elastoflex® Polyurethane resin and protected by a textured Elastocoat® layer. So it is not surprising that the Citroën OLI Concept can have a fairly light weight of around 1000 kg.
The French automaker said that the car is intended for urban use, instead not for driving at high speeds. As the result, the body is designed not aerodynamic. In the cabin, there is also a unique part, namely the seats are produced by BASF with a 3D printing method similar to Adidas sports shoes.
