Say hello to the rather striking Citroen Nemo Concetto; a concept for a people carrier version of the Company’s soon to be released new compact van. The visually arresting model will take its first public bow at the Bologna Motor Show in Italy (7-16 December 2007).

Not only does the Nemo Concetto share its name with the rather cheeky, yet resourceful clown fish from the Disney film, “Finding Nemo”, but also the animated star’s equally conspicuous orange, black and white colour scheme. Inside, the theme continues and includes images of Nemo and some of the film’s other characters, on the seats.

Little brother to Citroen’s best selling Berlingo, the Nemo van joins the Company’s successful commercial vehicle line-up – which is set for a record sales year – during the second quarter of 2008.

Like its screen star counterpart, the Nemo is nimble, compact and clever. Designed for the urban environment, Citroen’s latest van takes to town like a fish to water, nipping in and out of traffic with ease, whilst potentially avoiding congestion charges. It may be a mere 3.86m long, but its intelligent design, both inside and out, cleverly maximises the space available. The stylish front-end boasts high mounted headlamps, to avoid minor knocks, as well as large bumpers to offer excellent protection.
