Default Peugeot RC HYmotion4 Concept

The French auto makers are showing their home court advantage with several concepts in Paris today. PSA Peugeot Citroen has been especially impressive as they emphasize a new all-wheel-drive diesel-electric hybrid powertrain called HYmotion4.

In the Citroen Hypnos and Peugeot Prologue concepts, the HYmotion4 powertrain is based on a parallel full-hybrid design which uses a 2.0-liter HDi diesel engine with FAP particulate filter, electric motor driving the rear wheels, Stop and Start function and a compact six-speed automated gearbox. The HYmotion4 powertrain in these two concepts produces 200hp while achieving 68 mpg and emitting 109 g/km of CO2. However, the diesel-electric powertrain shows it's versatility in the third Peugeot concept, the RC HYmotion4.

First announced in August, the RC Hymotion4 concept is a four-door GT using the same powertrain principles as the Hypnos and Prologue, however, with a different engine and layout. Already seen in the 308 RCZ concept, it uses the 1.6 litre THP engine making 160 kW (218 bhp) which is fitted at the rear of the vehicle and a 70 kW (95hp) electric motor under the hood. The result is 230 kW/313 bhp with CO2 emissions of 109 g/km in the combined cycle and 4.5 litres/100 km. Torque is 178 Nm at the front and 280 Nm at the rear. Sprint from 0 to 100 km/h happens in 4.4 seconds, 80 to 120 km/h in just 3.0 seconds.

Wow that's genuinely good looking. Why can't Citroen be like them.

After all, they're both French.
