Peugeot HX1 Concept hybrid plug-in MPV officially revealed


With the Frankfurt Motor Show around the corner, Peugeot has released details on the HX1 Concept hybrid plug-in ahead of the show. The low-slung hybrid plug-in MPV can accommodate up to six adults in three rows of seats, and while providing an aerodynamic body structure that is raked enough to achieve a very low 0.28 drag coefficient.

The Peugeot HX1 Concept hyrid MPV has very unique doors for easy access. Passengers can enter and exit via five rear-hinged half-scissor doors. To even further the easy access process, a center row seating can be stowed away by pushing the buckets back into the front seats.

Power for the Peugeot HX1 Concept hybrid plug-in MPV is provided by a 204-hp 2.4-liter turbo-diesel engine for the front axle while the rear axle is powered by an electric motor. The combined power output of two motors is rated at 299 horsepower. Peugeot claims that the HX1 Concept has an estimated fuel economy of 3.2 lt/100 km (73.4 mpg US) and CO2 emissions of just 83.0 g/km.

As for now, the Peugeot HX1 hybrid plug-in is just a concept model. We will know soon if Peugeot decides to turn it into a production model after the Frankfurt Motor Show.
