Citroën creates a modern Méhari

Citroën's latest concept, the Cactus M, has been heavily influenced by the open-top Méhari utility that first appeared in the late 1960s.

Accordingly, features include plastic doors, body-side footholds to allow passengers to climb into the rear seats, an almost flat windscreen and a complete absence of weather protection.

Given that the cabin is open to the elements, waterproof neoprene upholstery and a bare floor seem like wise choices. Indeed, strategically placed drain holes mean the cabin can be hosed out if it gets very mucky.

All-wheel drive isn't part of the specification. However, a degree of off-road ability is provided by a raised ride height plus Grip Control, which is designed to maximise traction over rough terrain.

The Cactus M is due to be unveiled at this month's Frankfurt International Motor Show.
