The Peugeot HYmotion3 Evolution concept is an evolution of the HYmotion3 Compressor which was revealed the year before. Basically the HYbrid3 Evolution is a roofless version of the HYbrid3 compressor.

The scooter features electric motor in each of its two front wheels and a naturally aspirated engine at the rear, it uses hybrid technology solutions to achieve its 3-wheel drive capability.

In order to allow the two front wheels to lean, the front suspension system of the HYmotion3 Evolution consists of deformable parallelograms with a central transverse damper.

The advanced braking system incorporates an ABS system with a linked integral braking system (PBS) which acts simultaneously on the rear wheel and the two front wheels. The braking system operates by means of three ventilated discs and, in addition, via the front electric motors which in this way recover energy to recharge the batteries. This assembly (3 wheels + electric motor braking) also makes it possible to reduce the braking distance by around 30 % compared to a two-wheel scooter equipped with traditional brakes.

The petrol engine providing the concept's rear wheel drive has an output of 41 horsepower (30 kW). This new 300cc engine, which is linked to a compressor, obtains the performance of a 500 cc unit whilst offering reduced levels of CO2 output.

In addition to rear-wheel drive, the HYmotion3 Evolution also has another drive mode.

Two electric motors, one in each wheel, are present at the front of the vehicle. With an output of 2x3 kW, they are powered by lithium-ion batteries which can be recharged by an energy recovery system active during deceleration and braking.

As a result there are no mechanical connections between the front and the rear, with everything controlled electronically ("by wire"), which works in favour of the vehicle's compact size.
