Peugeot HX1 Concept brings a clever design at Frankfurt
The French auto maker has released a couple of visuals of its Peugeot HX1 Concept, just ahead of the vehicle’s world debut at 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show. The design of the innovative MPV shows a very low balance within the fact that it is possible to seat up to six adults while keeping a remarkably low drag coefficient: just 0.28. Those numbers were achieved thanks to a few clever design strategies such as some particular side skirt and spoiler work as well as the clever wheel blades system that open up to create a flat area.
The original half-scissor system for opening doors are hinged at the ends and lift up when rotating. The Peugeot HX1 Concept predict the concept of luxury and interior comfort, and based on the French brand, the HX1 concept features a number of all-natural materials and performs incredibly sophisticated technical solutions, as well as the exclusive 4+2 seat scheme.
It’s not a surprise that the concept can operate in all-electric mode for about 30 km, the Peugeot HX1 Concept gets its power from a plug-in hybrid system. The front wheels are pushed from a 204-hp 2.4-liter turbo-diesel engine, while an electric motor takes care of the rear axle. At the end the Peugeot HX1 Concept produces 299 hp while and the fuel efficiency states 88.3 miles per gallon.
