Peugeot SR1 Concept

Remember the sleek, full-bodied concept Peugeot delivered to us back in March at the Geneva Motor Show? That concept is back, but it is coming to us as a new concept in the form of the H1. The name is just a codename, but Gilles Vidal, Peugeot’s design boss, will be unveiling the concept at the Paris Motor Show in October.

According to Autocar UK, the sportscar will have post-207 styling cues and will also feature PSA Peugeot-Citroen’s diesel hybrid technology. It will carry similar dimensions as found in Citroen’s 4.3 meter DS4 and will use a front end similar to the one found on the 208 Supermini .

Gilles Vidal stated that Peugeot’s "wide-mouthed frog" look was coming to an end and that future Peugeot cars will have smaller lights and grills as well as be more sculpted with lighter looking shapes and a better stance.

The SR1 concept was powered by Peugeot’s HYbrid4 technology consisting of a 1.6 Liter THP gas burning lump that makes 218 HP up front combined with an electric motor developing an additional 95 HP at the rear.

Looks like there is something missing on this one. The exterior is not impressive to me but I guess being into a diesel oriented hybrid technology made sense, Though the shape is quite lighter still this has a chance to get noticeable.

Aaron Lexus, why so bothered about diesel hybrid technology? I know that you are not convinced on the combination but you cannot speed up the process of converting the whole thing, it will take time my friend. We need to wait for it.

I really hate this diesel hybrid technology! No matter how good is the one I still doubt its reliability when combine with the diesel. Can’t they come up with full hybrid technology? 

the Countryman reveal will be the production model, not a concept as stated.

I wish they’d bring it over, but as the article states, it’s looking slim. Do they really have the notion that the US consumer still doesn’t like hatches?

don’t get the high-rider thing... but it looks good. Very smooth.

Great thing to await to from the Paris Autoshow..that will be a good day for all the car enthusiast..

Good grief! A Citroen that actually looks good, hot, a bit sexy even??? Whatever next!!! But hey its a Citroen so it will no doubt fall to bits and cost a small fortune to maintain. Plus it will come with a matching cardigan, a cravat and a pipe for the driver. But hey, it looks cool!

Just to make it a little easier to buy one, please tell me BMW has scrapped the overly camp POS dashboard. Why is it necessary to make the inside of a Mini look like Walt designed it for Goofy to drive Mickey around in?

To the point that if I was in the market for a new car, I would not instantly buy a new MINI like at one time I would have.

This one is definitely looking good for Peugeot. Certainly something that a lot of people would want to see in the production lines.

Cool, classic look with a bit of modern in the details. Plus the monster engine beneath.

sweet, gorgeous and classy looking car, I guess they also want to beat the Japanese car on the Roadster line.

I think this is a very nice car - Like virtually all new Citroen. I am a real fan of this DS range as they enter some new things in design.

I admit I know nothing of car design - so I’m at a loss to explain just what it is about this car that makes me enjoy the looks of it so much. Lines? Curves? Proportions? Who cares about the justifications...just let me have one! NICE JOB!

I really like the new Citroen... like the new C3 and the DS3, this one is also a nice piece of work in styling.
