If the Prius and other hybrids entice you with their environmental assets but don’t get your lead foot excited, Peugeot may one day have a hybrid that fits your needs.
The French car makers recently unveiled the HX-1 concept car, which the company claims to be the world’s first diesel hybrid. The designers at Peugeot got creative with this plug-in hot rod as a 2.4L turbocharged diesel engine powers the front wheels with 204hp while an electric motor powers the rear wheels. Peugeot claims the innovative design cranks out an impressive 299 horsepower while still allowing for an equivalent 88.1 miles per gallon.
The HX-1 is still in the concept phase so keep an eye out for further info and keep your Prius pedal off the metal in the meantime.
