Citroen will unveil at the Paris Auto Show the Hypnos concept car, a hybrid vehicle that is blurring the line of sports coupe and SUV (kinda like the BMW X6.)

Citroen calls this car a hybrid, but has not yet indicated what technology it is utilizing. What is known, and a little exciting for a hybrid, is the engine will make 200 bhp. Citroen says that the Hypnos will still keep green by giving high gas millage and low emissions (4.5 l/100 km and 120 g/km of CO2).

Press release after the jump.

Press release

With the 2008 Paris Motor Show just a few weeks away, Citroën is unveiling Hypnos, a concept car illustrating a new take on the world of exceptional vehicles.

An elegant cross-over vehicle, Hypnos draws on a range of creative technologies to deliver outstanding performance and environmental efficiency, combined with subtle but powerful motoring sensations.

An elegant and spellbinding concept car

Hypnos is an impressive vehicle, combining the vitality of a coupé with the elegance of a saloon and the space of an SUV. Powerful, flowing and expressive, the exterior styling identifies Hypnos as a car to rouse the emotions.
The initial appeal of the exterior styling is confirmed by the cabin, with its original colours and its ability to make technology more human and approachable. A powerful sensory experience awaits the driver and passengers, taking them into the realm of pure magic.

Innovation serving the environment

The special hybrid technology used on Hypnos highlights Citroën’s commitment to the environment and shows once again that this strong ecological focus is always accompanied by driving thrills and efficiency.
With its 200 bhp (147 kW) engine, Hypnos combines dynamic performance with low fuel consumption and emissions (4.5 l/100 km and 120 g/km of CO2).

Illustrating the advantages of hybrid technology through a high-tech approach, Citroën has designed a beautifully proportioned coupé with bold styling.

The Hypnos concept is very impressive! It can hypnotize all the attention of anyone on its debut, but I don’t really like the fact that it is one of the hybrid cars! So, unreliable!
