It’s out of Peugeot’s drawing boards, showrooms and will soon be out of their garage in 2011. This is the first diesel hybrid car in the world and a dream car for those people who think we don’t need speed and aggression on cars (Save the planet kind of thinking).
The car is powered by a 2.0 liter turbo diesel engine with a rear electric motor that can give power up to 27 kW. You will have an option whether to just choose an all diesel, all electric or both the engine and electric motor working together and this is paired to a 6 speed manual gearbox. You don’t have to ask or find how fast this can shoot from 0-60 or how much power this can breathe because this will only disappoint you but think of this…3.8 liters to run a distance of 100km! and that’s unbelievable.
This is a crossover/SUV which adds to its versatility and practicality. What’s even better is its interior styling, it’s fitted with high quality materials that even give you that executive like kind of feeling.
This car will have a different fanbase and those looking for a screamingly fast car, you need to turn into a different direction and find another avenue because this is not the car for you.
