Text from the designer :
This concept presents a small 3-seater city car. It is powered by a sophisticated hybrid system, consisting of small 1,6 liter HDi engine and an electric motor. Unlike most small cars the engine is placed above the rear(driving) wheels, actually making it a mid-engine car. This improves weight distribution, gets rid of the complex, heavy mechanics for power transmission and makes the unique, aerodynamic body possible. The big windscreen, together with the center position of the driver contributes to perfect visibility and makes even short trips joyful experience.
Another innovation is the rims which consist of two parts- outer(10-spoke classic) part which is free to rotate and inner part with Peugeot neon logo, which is stationary and great to behold, especially at night. For safety considerations the tail-lights are designed in such a way that the harder you press the brakes the more LED light up to warn the driver behind. The car is inspired by Nature and designed to work in harmony with It. It proves that small and practical cars can be stylish as well.
