Engine hybrid, 1.6 litre 4 cyl + electric

At the 2010 Geneva Motor Show Peugeot unveiled the SR1 concept car. The SR1 was an incredibly important concept for Peugeot as it showcased an all new design language for the company - one which eventually permeated throughout the entire model range.

Peugeot's previous styling language was inspired by the feline form, but the SR1 appears to have a more technical and engineering orientated influence - and the results are fantastic! Just check out some of the more discreet styling touches like the wing mirror supports which thread through the a-pillars, and the sublime contours of the door panel.

According to Peugeot's marketing department the SR1 concept represents "a more extreme and pure expression of the Peugeot Style of tomorrow and also displays a new look corporate Lion badge."

The SR1 features Peugeots latest hybrid drivetrain, the HYbrid4 unit. On the SR1 a front-mounted 1.6 litre THP petrol engine with a power output of 218 horsepower is combined with a rear-mounted electric motor developing 95 horsepower. In electric only mode, the SR1 is a Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV), with a combined cycle fuel consumption of 57.7 mpg or 119 g/km of CO2.

When the two powertrains are used at the same time the resulting 313 horsepower and all-wheel-drive layout results in outstanding performance and secure roadholding.

The SR1's dynamic abilities are enhanced thanks to a rigid, lightweight structure comprising of a one-piece body incorporating a tubular chassis onto which are mounted the drivetrain components and suspension.

Other engineering highlights of the Peugeot SR1 concept include speed sensitive four wheel steering, and four wheel independent double wishbone suspension.
