Engine Hybrid: internal combustion engine / electric

The Peugeot SxC concept was designed in China, at the Peugeot Style Studios of the China Tech Centre in Shanghai. The SxC concept forms part of Peugeot's strategy to further enhance their presence in China, the world's largest car market. The name itself, SxC, stands for; Shanghai Cross Concept.

The Peugeot SxC is a crossover concept which tries to blend the practicality of SUVs with the luxury and finesse of upmarket sedans.

Despite being specifically tailored to suit Chinese tastes, the SxC concept draws heavily on the styling of the Peugeot SR1 roadster concept - especially at the front end where both cars share a similar headlight/grille arrangement.

The large proportions of the Peugeot SxC concept - with a length of 4.870 m, a height of 1.610 m and a width of 2.035 m - are nicely counterbalanced by the aerodynamic bodywork and steeply raked windscreen. It's only once you realize the wheels are 22-inches in diameter you get a more accurate impression of the vehicle's size.

Powering the SxC concept is a hybrid drivetrain consisting of a 1.6 litre gasoline engine delivering 218 horsepower to the front wheels, and a 95 horsepower electric motor driving the rear wheels. With this drivetrain - with the potential for a 313 hp total output - the SxC offers a a combined fuel consumption of 48.7 mpg and CO2 emissions of 143 g/km. Additionally it can be driven in pure electric mode at lower speeds.
