Paris Motor Show: Peugeot HR1
September 30, 2010 § Leave a comment
The HR1 is a compact city concept seating up to four people, a high-riding mini-SUV on a similar theme to the Nissan Juke. It features Peugeot’s Hybrid4 petrol-electric tech, with a three-cylinder, 110bhp 1.2-litre engine driving the front wheels, a 37bhp electric motor driving the rear and six-speed automated-manual transmission; it returns 81mpg and emits just 80g/km of carbon dioxide. Though this is very much a show car, with scissor-opening doors, a movement-recognition control interface, and a tablet PC for the front-seat passenger, it does look like a serious proposal for production.
