MUNICH -- Peugeot will unveil a sports car concept at the Geneva auto show in March that previews the French brand's new design language.
Called the SR1, the two-door hardtop has a sleek appearance that highlights a lighter, more elegant look for future Peugeot cars.
The concept's front-end is less aggressive than the “big cat” look of current Peugeots with a much smaller grille than on existing models.
The concept has a full hybrid powertrain that will be offered on future Peugeots starting in 2011 with the 3008 crossover.
The SR1's 218-hp, 1.6-liter gasoline engine is twinned to a 70kW (95hp) rear-wheel electric motor.
Average fuel consumption is 4.9 liters per 100km with CO2 emissions of 119 grams per kilometer.
