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.
