Design Concept of the Day: Peugeot HX1
August 30, 2011 § Leave a comment
To be unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show, Peugeot’s HX1 is a low-riding six-seater MPV with a ‘4+2’ seating layout and adaptable driving position. It’s ultra-aerodynamic, and can change its profile according to conditions and requirements. Power (299bhp in total) comes from a 2.2-litre HDI diesel engine driving the front wheels and a rear motor driving the rear axle, giving four-wheel drive and an all-electric mode of 18.6 miles; the HX1 will return 88.2mpg and emit just 83g/km of carbon dioxide. It’s just a concept to gauge public opinion at the moment, but looks pretty feasible, albeit with a more conventional interior configuration.
