2010 Peugeot HR1 Concept
The Peugeot HR1 Concept is helped by its particularly compact dimensions (a length of 3.67 m and very short front and rear overhangs) but also an original system for getting into and out of the vehicle. It is an exclusive and innovative urban concept car that blends together a number of genres (city run-around, coupé and SUV).
The Peugeot HR1 Concept shares the same expressive headlamps with their finely chiselled design and the single “floating” front grille which seems to be detached from the rest of the body, as the SR1. More further by the flowing wheel arches, large wheels and the raised sections above the rear windscreen, reminiscent of the “double bubble” roof design of the RCZ Coupé.
The headlamps and “full LED” rear lights, finished in the style of hi-tech jewels which give the car a unique signature by day and by night. At the rear, the roof bars serve as an ingenious hinge for the opening one-piece, dark tinted glass tailgate.
Peugeot HR1 Concept has a structured design, with a “High-Tech Coupé” driving position, providing a special ambiance through the combination of style, quality of finish, equipment and ergonomics. The technology controlled includes the audio, satellite navigation and air conditioning systems. The driver can also select, at his discretion, the preferred type of information to be displayed in the instrument panel: rev counter, water and oil temperature during “dynamic driving”, or tourist information when “cruising”.
When both rear seats are raised, the boot capacity is reduced, but it still offers a substantial 180 litres of space.
The Peugeot HR1 Concept incorporates Peugeot’s innovative HYbrid4 technology. Under the bonnet, the internal combustion engine which drives the front wheels is a new three cylinder petrol unit. It has a capacity of 1.2 litres and, using Peugeot’s THP technology, produces 110 bhp. Also combining 37 bhp electric motor and, therefore, has a maximum potential power output of 147 bhp, with a combined fuel consumption of 81 mpg and CO2 emissions of just 80 g/km.
In addition, the electronically-controlled 6-speed manual gearbox coupled with this power train is designed to offer maximum control. The driver can also opt between two modes of operation, sequential or automatic.
