The footballer theme developed to Citroen CCrab concept, drawing inspiration from this small cuba crab, which is small and nimble crab with swarming behavior. I also found design inspiration from crabs overlapping armoring.
First we were asked to develop 3 distinct design directions with different themes. I took inspiration from different sports in how they move and act. First one was sprinter, it´s only about raw power and acceleration. Second was curling theme which main idea was "balancing on a slippery surface" It was a three wheeler, because when curling captain is leading the stone he only has three pivot points. And the third chosen one drew inspiration of how footballer moves on a pitch. Dribbling through the traffic was the key idea. Small and nimble vehicle with ability to go sideways, would allow ev to stand out from the old internal combustion engine vehicles.
