Peugeot Introduces Urban Hybrid Concept Car
Vehicle in the newsMake/Model: HR1 concept Manufacturer: Peugeot
The HR1 is a compact, crossover-styled concept using a newly designed 3-cylinder, 1.2L THP gasoline engine in the front and rear-axle electric motor combination.
The engine puts out 81kW (144lb-ft) and is part of Peugeot's new family of 3-cylinder engines under development for their downsizing strategy. Coupled with a 27kW motor, the engine's drive system has a potential power of 108kW at 67mpg efficiency.
The ultra-compact design (total length of 3.69m) of the HR1 also includes electrically-controlled gullwing doors that raise directly upwards for easier access in restricted-space areas such as indoor garages.
And so ...Very cool concept with a lot of potential, but still just a concept at this point. No word on whether it will be built or when has been given. Photo credits: Peugeot
