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.
