Peugeot HX1 Concept Revealed Ahead Of 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show Debut

by Ionut Dragomir

With the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show just around the corner, Peugeot decided to reveal its six-seater MPV Concept, the Peugeot HX1.

While the “Metamorphosis” (the Greek word for transformation that indicates the car’s ability to adapt to different driving conditions passenger requirements) is the main theme, the Peugeot HX1 is a concept featuring an extremely low drag coefficient (0.28) with an unique 4+2 seating configuration. This means it can either transport a whole family or become a spacious four seater after the middle two seats get removed.

The Peugeot HX1 features a low roof line, two hinged doors on each side, and special alloys with unique turbine blades that open up when the car is in movement in order to improve drag, measuring almost 4,954 m in length, 1,990 m in width and 1,373 m in height. In addition comes a three piece roof spoiler which also opens up when the car reaches a certain speed (over 100 Km/h / 62mph).

The interior is a successful combination of elegance and modernity in an environment which makes use of natural materials and numerous futuristic looking elements.

As for the power, the Peugeot HX1 Concept features the automaker’s HYbrid4 diesel plug-in powertrain, which this time combines a 2.2-litre HDi diesel plant with a 70 kW electric motor. The diesel engine is rated at 204 HP and is responsible for sending its power to the front wheels via a six-speed automatic gearbox, while the electric motor spins the rear wheels and helps the HX1 become a 4WD vehicle.

This concept can generate 299 HP (220 kW) and its electric batteries, rechargeable at a regular 240Volt outlet enable an environmentally friendly ride with zero emissions for up to 29.6 Km (18.4 miles). However, when the diesel plant is also used, the HX1 can cover 100 Km on just 3.2-litres of fuel (73.4 US mpg), while CO2 emissions will be as low as 83 grammes per Km.

The Peugeot HX1 will join the all-new Peugeot 508 RXH on the stand at Frankfurt on September 13, so stay tuned for details.
