    French automaker Peugeot will pull the wraps off a brand-new concep
    vehicle called the SR1 at the Geneva Motor Show in March. Unlike
    number of recent Peugeot cars and concepts, the SR1 isn't hallmarke
    by quirky, love-it-or-hate-it styling. Instead, we see a somewha
    traditional long-hood, short-deck profile with some interestin
    details, such as the creased indentation in the doors that's echoe
    in both the front and rear fascias. Also note the redesigned Lio
    logo, which we surmise will show up on all future Peugeots from her
    on out

    Power for the SR1 (which, of course, has nothing at all to do with th
    Corvette ZR1) comes courtesy of Peugeot's HYbrid4 technology, whic
    pairs a small 1.6-liter turbodiesel four-cylinder engine powering th
    front wheels with a 95-horsepower electric motor at the rear. Peugeo
    says that its all-wheel drive, through-the-road hybrid system wil
    make its production debut in 2011 inside the 3008 crossover, wit
    other models to closely follow

    Other concept-appropriate bits and pieces include a new removabl
    plastic roof panel using technology that's borrowed from the world o
    sailing, a three-seat layout with the third passenger behind the twi
    front seats and instrumentation that pairs futuristic crystal tube
    displaying current fuel consumption and remaining range with
    classic timepiece designed by Bell & Ross. Continuing the ol
    versus new theme are black nickel and satin chrome trim wit
    traditional wood and leather inlays

    With 313 combined horsepower, fuel mileage estimated at 57.7 mp
    (European, 48 miles per gallon U.S.) and carbon emissions of just 11
    grams per kilometer, the Peugeot SR1 ought to be a mean, gree
    performer. Plus, its speed-sensitive four-wheel steering an
    lightweight structure should equal formidable handling prowess. O
    course, we may never know for sure, as this car, though it apparentl
    signals Peugeot's new styling direction, is nothing more than
    concept at this point
