at the Geneva motor show in 1986, the Eole was designed entirely by computer,
bypassing the normal stages of such a car's creation.
Geoffrey Matthews who came to CitroŽn from PSA-owned Chrysler UK did the original drawings from which the computer worked.
Eole was based on a CX platform and achieved a CD factor of 0,17 which was approximately half that of the CX thanks to fully enclosed wheels.
The car was fitted
with no roll, active suspension that automatically lowered the ride height at speed.
Following these trials, the decision was taken to equip the CX successor with an active system.
