Several Citroën E-Mehari and Bolloré Bluesummer, including prototypes, were put up for sale by a company that modified these models for the rally. Some of the specimens offered are unused, but all are sold without batteries.
Solutions-VE is a company that develops electric competition buggies, specifically for the Aïcha des Gazelles Rally, a women’s rally that takes place every year in the Moroccan desert. The event has included an electric vehicle class since 2017, and prior to the development of a dedicated vehicle, Solutions-VE modified and offered for rent Citroën E-Mehari and Bolloré Bluesummer, two “cousin” models assembled at the PSA plant ( now Stellantis) at Rennes-la Janais, Brittany. The company now sells several copies.
A development base for electric rallying
In view of the 2017 Rally, Solutions-VE had managed to acquire several Citroën and Bolloré E-Mehari and Bluesummers, including a certain number of prototypes, in order to convert them for the competition. The progress of the company’s projects is now forcing it to make room. The vehicles in question are sold without a working battery, and some cannot be registered on public roads. They should therefore serve as a spare parts store or as a development basis for various projects or even be used on private property if a battery is found.
