The HX1 Concept Car gives Peugeot the opportunity to once again illustrate the marque’s ability to reflect on new ideas, learn how to evolve and to continually reinvent itself.
The brief for this concept was to produce a vehicle for up to six people, offering strong styling, that is sporty and efficient and at the same time giving a unique driving sensation.
To achieve this, the HX1 transcends the notions of adaptability in all areas, with its extreme aerodynamics (‘flaps’ are deployed to optimise aero efficiency according to vehicle speed), its tapered, low MPV architecture and its HYbrid4 power plant integrating ‘plug-in’ technology.

Between now and 2013, PSA Peugeot Citroën plans to invest €175 million at its La Française de Mécanique plant in Douvrin, in the Pas-de-Calais department of northern France, to prepare for the production of a new 3-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine.
The investment follows on from the Group’s decision to extend its line-up of 3-cylinder petrol engines currently under development by adding a turbocharged version to the naturally aspirated versions.
This new family of 3-cylinder engines, which are particularly carbon-efficient, will therefore include i) the 1-litre and 1.2-litre naturally aspirated versions to be produced at the Trémery plant beginning in 2012, with capacity of 640,000 units a year, and ii) the 1.2-litre turbo versions to be produced at Douvrin beginning in 2012, with capacity of 320,000 units a year.
