The DS Survolt, based on the REVOLTe concept car, was showcased at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show. A fully electric race car, the Survolt is a zero-emissions vehicle and is powered by a pair of electric motors that give 300 hp (224 kW) and 354 ft·lb (480 N·m) in total.
The Survolt is 12.63 ft (3.85 m) long, 6.14 ft (1.87 m) wide, and 3.94 ft (1.20 m) high and features a design with the front dominated by the vehicle's badge located above the large oval-shaped grill. The car's headlights are horizontal LEDs that consume less power than traditional filament bulbs — important in a battery-operated vehicle. At the rear, the Survolt retains the light cluster design used on the REVOLTe concept car but also has a spoiler added to increase downforce.
Citroën claims that the Survolt can accelerate from a standstill to 60 mph (97 km/h) in less than 5 seconds and reach a top speed of 162 mph (260 km/h), and that its batteries give a range of 124 mi (200 km). In 2016, it was succeded by the DS E-TENSE.
The Citroën Survolt is unlocked at Level 19 and costs $1,800,000 to purchase. It has the following stats:
- Top Speed : 255 km/h
- Acceleration: 4.90s
- Handling: 38
- Weight: 2,568 lbs
Asphalt 6: Adrenaline

- Nitro Speed: 340 km/h
- Top Speed : 290 km/h

Asphalt 8: Airborne
The DS Survolt, previously known as the Citroën Survolt prior to the Car Mastery Update, is a low Class C (originally Class B) car with the following statistics:
- Starting rank: 1107
- MAX rank: 1318 (+211)
- MAX+PRO rank: 1386 (+68)
- This was changed to 1356 in the Sixth Anniversary Update
- This was changed to 1357 in the 2019 Holiday Update
- Tuning Kit bonus: +49
- This was changed to +41 in the 2019 Spring Update
- This was changed to +40 in the 2019 Holiday Update
- Nitro Efficiency: 5/10/15
The Survolt has quick acceleration and efficient nitro usage. This comes in very handy for Multiplayer races, as well as the Career Mode all the way up to Season 7: Heat. It also suffers from the problem of a slightly wide drifting radius, although it handles better than the Aston Martin DB9 Coupé, which is unable to compete against the Survolt in any way despite being ranked higher.
The Survolt is one of the more popular cars in Multiplayer, and generally considered one of the best starter Class C cars overall due to its huge potential: it can finish all Class C-focused Career races in skilled hands, it is a gateway car to Multiplayer races, it counts towards two car collections, and its Season 9: Beyond race is one of the best early opportunities for farming Credits, with a base payout of 4,420 for finishing in first place in a race that typically lasts less than 1:05:00 (this was removed in 2020 Spring Update).
The Survolt can compete with many vehicles including the Pagani Zonda R and McLaren 12C Spider, in the 1300-1400 bracket which it excels in at MAX+PRO. In the hands of a skilled player, it can hold its own against the Donkervoort D8 GTO, Ariel Atom V8, McLaren M14A when boosters are used, but cannot compete against the McLaren MP4/8.
It is recommended to use the acceleration of the Survolt to knock down stragglers such as the Lamborghini Countach 25th Anniversary and the Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR-X which sometimes appear in Multiplayer and have very slow acceleration. However one must be careful of D8s and MP4/8s as there is a chance of being knocked down by those faster-accelerating vehicles.
As of the Fifteenth Anniversary Update, the Survolt costs 300,000 to purchase (originally 8,500, then 12,750 and then 45,000). As of the 2019 Spring Update, upgrades cost 315,000 while Pro Kits require 50,400, 8 of each Class B Part and 4 Initial & Early Techs each.
