Peugeot seems to be pretty excited to reveal their new concept at the 2010 Paris Motor Show at the end of this month. They claim that their "car of the future will combine 200 years of history with 200 years of demands and emotions." That’s a slightly big statement to make. We hope they have the vehicle that will substantiate that claim, but they are not starting off too well considering this vehicle is only a design study with no plans for a production version. Typical, we supposedly finally get the car we’ve been waiting 200 years for and we won’t even be able to drive it...ever.
The Peugeot EX1 design study will combine design elements found in the BB1 unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2009 and the SR1 unveiled earlier this year at the Geneva Show. We don’t know for sure if the concept will be a hybrid or an electric vehicle, but we do know it will be a sports car featuring a futuristic interior. With such a bold claim, the EX1 better be worthy of the company’s 200 years of experience or Peugeot will look pretty silly.
The first official details will be revealed on September 6, followed by a reveal on September 21, so stay tuned!
