Peugeot Onyx Goes From Render to Real Ride

Loading...Peugeot Onyx is one of the concepts I’ve missed over the past year or so, but the big deal here is that it actually got made into a real supercar that was tested by Top Gear. The Onyx came to life at the 2012 Paris Auto Show, originally with 1160 nm of torque available from the gasoline engine and 280 nm of torque from the electric motor.

Peugeot Onyx concept 1

This model is a bit more squared than expected and its doors and wings are made of polished copper for some reason. The copper pieces were left unprotected so a natural tarnishing would cover them for a nifty effect. The rest of the body panels are made of carbon fiber and upfront we’ve got a flat and vertical grille.

Peugeot Onyx concept 3

That one includes 4 horizontal louvers and the famous lion logo. Full LED headlights are also included and up top there’s a double hump roof, with a bunch of air intakes to get air to the engine. By the way, the roof is made of a special shatter resistant glass, or better said plexiglas. At the back there’s another handful of LEDs, creating some special models.

We see no sign of an exhaust here, but there are half a dozen holes near the bottom of the rear, so maybe that’s the exhaust. The Peugeot Onyx super weighs 1100 kg, measures 4.65 mm in length and it’s 1.13 m high.

The driver’s cabin has been projected to be separate from the passenger cabin, giving the driver the sensation of safety and allowing him to be completely focused during driving. With every move and turn, the Peugeot Coaster offers thrilling sensations thanks to its active rotating system, much like a ride from an amusement park.

This concept vehicle offers great mobility and a different way of freedom, which separates it from other means of transportation, giving a new value to driving, and making it fun and exciting, through its innovating system.

1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars (12 votes, average: 3.75 out of 5)
Loading...The 5 concept car by Peugeot, which will be displayed at the Geneva Motor Show, in March, is going to be the foundation for the new Peugeot 508 production series. The 508 sedan will replace the Peugeot 407 and 607 and will compete with the Ford Mondeo and Opel/Vauxhall Insignia.

5_by_peugeot_concept_1

With a length of 4.85 meters and a width of 1.87, the 5 by Peugeot is powered by HYbrid4 technology, consisting in a 2.0 litre HDi diesel engine that generates 163 horsepower and a rear-mounted 37 HP electric motor, bringing the total output to 200 horsepower. This system offers four-wheel drive when required, an electric only mode, low fuel consumption and low CO2 emissions (zero in electric mode).

In the front side, the Peugeot 5 concept car presents a large air intake, a chromed grille and nicely designed headlights, while at the back we can see the “classic” Peugeot tail lights, that extend to the rear quarter panels and sporty dual exhausts.

The series version of the 508 sedan could be presented as a premiere at the Paris Motor Show in September, and it is expected to go into serial production late this year or at the beginning of 2011.

Peugeot Epine Concept Car is Inspired by Formula One and Motorcycles

1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars (24 votes, average: 4.58 out of 5)
Loading...Peugeot Epine was basically a project that was supposed to turn into an environmentally friendly hybrid vehicle, but eventually it turned into a “consumer’s racing car”. Inspired by Formula One cars and motorcycles, Epine features a whale skeleton, as a tribute to Mother Nature. The concept car was created by Daniel Schumpert.

peugeot_epine_concept_car_1

This Peugeot ride relies on the Epine system, with an innovative seating arrangement and the drive-by-wire technology, as far as steering is concerned. The energy source of the vehicle is placed at the back, while the storage area is at the front of the car.

Also, we found out that Epine uses the Michelin Tweel concept airless wheels, with a positive impact on the suspension system. Turns out that the wheel spokes are able to compress and decompress, thanks to the materials they’re made out of, allowing a wide variety of car motions. This futuristic Peugeot measures 4,260 mm (length), 1,882mm (width) and 1153mm (height).

Peugeot RD 3 Concept Car, One Passenger, Three Wheels

1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars (27 votes, average: 3.89 out of 5)
Loading...So many three wheel concept cars lately… Must be a new trend, like the touchscreen is for mobile phones. Well, at least this looks fairly good and it’s been designed by Carlos Arturo Torres Tovar.

Bear in mind that the Peugeot RD 3 can become more compact during crowded traffic and low speeds, making it the ideal ride for a long distance travel.

peugeot_rd3_concept_1.jpg

The RD 3 displays information regarding the road you’re on, plus any other data you might require via vocal command. The RD isn’t the speedster you’re dreaming of, nor is it tomorrow’s supercar, but rather an useful urban vehicle, perfect for suburbs and sneaking in front of other automobiles.

Peugeot Loop is a Green Concept Car With Touchscreen Windows

1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars (16 votes, average: 4.19 out of 5)
Loading...In case the title seemed misleading, this is an automobile we’re talking about, a designed by Abhinav Dapke, bearing the name Loop. The vehicle is environmentally-friendly and it uses a solar panel, which is one of the power sources for the automobile, aside from a Lithium battery.

peugeot_loop_1.jpg

This battery is placed at the rear of the Peugeot Loop and it’s a rechargeable unit. Those touchscreen windows I mentioned in the title are present too and I’m sorry if you thought that I was talking about the operating system.

Back to the windows, they embed a concept camera that can take photos of the surrounding environment, in case you like what you see and touch them, triggering the snapshot.

Loading...We keep checking out cars included in the and we’ve stumbled upon the Peugeot Stylight concept, designed by Ognyan Bozhilov. This automobile is a compact three-seater, designed to ride in the city, while hiding a 1.6 liter HDI engine under its hood, plus an electric motor, to keep Mother Nature satisfied.

peugeot_stylight_1.jpg

The Peugeot Stylight is a mid-engine vehicle, with the engine placed above the rear wheels, improving the weight distribution. Notice the concept automobile’s rims, made out of two parts, an exterior one that rotates and the inner one that comes with a fixed Peugeot neon logo.

Peugeot Henosis Concept Supercar, Based on Hydrogen Fuel and… Gaming Skills

1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars (15 votes, average: 4.33 out of 5)
Loading...Henosis is a concept design, created by Alexei Mikhailov, who managed to foresee the future of modern automobiles, as they slip into the hands of the Xbox generation. Its aggressive, but still elegant look is coupled with its eco-friendliness, as the vehicle uses hydrogen fuel and a powerful battery.

henosis_concept_car_1.jpg

Today’s kids will be tomorrow’s drivers and buyers of today’s concepts, the future mass production cars. In case this phrase made too little sense, imagine that the Peugeot Henosis uses gaming-style controls for basically any function.

So, if you’re an avid gamer and can’t seem to get that driving license, start improving those gaming skills and coordination, as it’s going to pay off. By the way, I have to mention that the car was designed for the 2008 Peugeot design competition, but sadly didn’t make it to the top 30. Too bad, as it looks great.

1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars (18 votes, average: 3.83 out of 5)
Loading...The fifth annual Design Contest is a time of joy for the folks who dig futuristic designs and hot concepts. This time we’re checking out the Peugeot 888, created by Oskar Johansen, a two seat automobile powered by solar energy and shape-shifting.

peugeot_888_1.jpg

This vehicle switches between a suburban and city mode, by using a hydraulic tilting system and lifting the car (city mode) or lowering it in order to increase the speed (suburban mode).

Each wheel of the Peugeot 888 uses an independent electric motor, based on Li-ion batteries, but you shouldn’t forget the solar energy, harnessed with the aid of photovoltaic cells.

Peugeot Seed, a Green Electric Car that Uses Cameras

1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars (10 votes, average: 2.20 out of 5)
Loading...Seems that most of the Peugeot concept cars I’ve seen lately are eco-friendly, since they use electricity and are powered by solar panels. The Peugeot Seed is no exception, but its most interesting feature is the fact that it doesn’t incorporate windows, but uses cameras to show the driver what’s going on around the car.

peugeot_seed_1.jpg

The vehicle was designed by Andrew Kim and the Seed is wrapped with one big LCD display, like some other concept we’ve seen a while back. Must say I’m not a huge fan of the shape of this automobile, but hey, beautiful isn’t always useful, right?
