FRANKFURT MOTOR SHOW: Peugeot HX1 to make its world debut in Frankfurt
The HX1 Concept Car gives Peugeot the opportunity to once again illustrate the marque's ability to reflect on new ideas, learn how to evolve and to continually reinvent itself.
The brief for this concept was to produce a vehicle for up to six people, offering strong styling, that is sporty and efficient and at the same time giving a unique driving sensation.
Under the bonnet of the HX1 the engine is a 204 bhp, 2.2 litre HDi diesel, linked to an automatic
6-speed gearbox; the same powertrain as that used on the 508’s range-topping GT version. Coupled with a 70 kW (95 bhp) electric motor, the combined output can develop a potential 220 kW (299 bhp).
The HX1 is equipped with ‘plug-in’ functionality: the lithium-ion batteries can be recharged by plugging in the vehicle to a standard 240V mains electric socket. This means that it can have a longer “ZEV” range, i.e. it can cover up to 18.6 miles in all-electric drive mode. The HX1will possesses a combined fuel consumption of 88.2mpg with CO2 emissions of 83 g/km.For more of the latest industry news, click here.
