2011 Peugeot HX1 Concept

Submitted by on May 9, 2013 – 12:05 amNo Comment

2011 Peugeot HX1 Concept 2To achieve this, the Peugeot HX1 Concept 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.

Adaptive

The Peugeot HX1 Concept is a prospective concept designed to help envisage future solutions in numerous fields: architecture, aerodynamics, modularity, equipment, interior materials and the environment, not forgetting, of course, powerplants. These considerations have led to very strong bias that breaks from the norm and guided by a theme: ‘Metamorphosis’, to give the vehicle the capability to adapt itself to its environment, to life’s conditions, driving conditions, etc. and at any time.

Architecture

To meet specifications, the Peugeot HX1 Concept has been designed with an MPV architecture with unique dimensions: low (1.373 m) and wide (1.990 m overall) and with a length of 4.954 m.

This allows for a volume suited to pure, elegant and sleek lines that delivers a low Cd figure for maximum overall efficiency.

Four reverse-opening ‘half-scissor’ doors can be opened wide for ease of access to the HX1 passenger compartment. These kinematics have also been researched in terms of practicality and to allow accessibility under all circumstances.

The passenger compartment is structured so as to offer maximum comfort for the two passengers in the rear row and maximum sensation for the occupants of the first row. If required, two retractable seats can be configured in a centre row due to a clever system of “pull-out seats”, based on the same principle used on the HR1 Concept Car (First shown at the 2010 Paris Motor Show); these additional seats are integrated behind the front seats.

Aerodynamics

Designers have taken aerodynamics to the extreme with Peugeot HX1 Concept. When stationary and at low speeds the HX1’s styling makes it appear sculpted from a solid form as the moving parts have been adapted to optimise air flow and to enhance the car’s environmental performance. The seven ‘spokes’ in each wheel rim spike, fashioned like a turbine blade, open to create a flat disc surface. At the same time, a spoiler and two side skirts located at the top of the tailgate are deployed above 62.1mph. When moving, the HX1 therefore adapts itself ‘physically’ to its environment.

The vehicle has a Cd of 0.28; an outstanding value for a vehicle with an MPV silhouette.

All of these aerodynamic devices have evolved thanks to the free rein given to the immense creativity of Stylists.

Futuristic exterior styling, sculpted through aerodynamics

The Peugeot HX1 Concept is a vehicle that is pure in style; sculptured, upmarket and exuding dynamism and exclusivity. Aerodynamic, its sleek, elegant and fluid lines seem to have been tailored by the wind itself. They subtly underline the athletic, even muscular, character of the vehicle. Each surface is sculpted with precision, each detail is crafted intricately: mirrors with integral rear view cameras, brushed aluminium window surrounds, millimetre-perfect panel gaps and flush fittings, etc.

At the front, the HX1 enhances Peugeot’s latest design identity. The theme of a unique ‘floating’ front grille, which appears ‘detached’ from the bodywork has been designed to harmonise with the car’s tapered lines. The precisely-carved feline head lamps give it an appearance that is evocative of the Marque’s badge and history: the lion, proudly displayed on the front of the bonnet. This look is refined by an LED lighting signature, easily recognisable in the daytime or at night. This visual signature is also found in the rear lights, the boomerang shape of which follows the lines of the rear design.
