The name Taranis is taken from the Celtic God of Thunder or wheel-god, if you take a look at how impressive the design of Taranis, you probably agree with the name. This God is often portrayed with a thunderbolt on one hand and a wheel on the other.

The double-jointed front swing arms help to reduce what would otherwise be an enormous turning circle. What set Citroen Taranis design apart from other concepts would be its luxury finished combined with a unique layout and gullwing doors.
