People carriers are not cool. Not in any sense of the word, not in any shape or form. These boxes on wheels are the last resort for parents with large families as space tends to be at a premium with more than three children. Peugeot however intend on giving some hope to this market.
This is Peugeot’s MPV concept, a vision of what a people carrier from the French manufacturer will look like in 2020. Named the HX1, it is powered by a 2.2 litre HDi for the front wheels and a 95BHP electric motor for the rears. Pure electric range is pegged at 18.6 miles but combined consumption can be as good as 88MPG. The electric motor can be charged directly by plugging it into a charging station or a wall socket. For a people mover it sure looks good and even has front and rear swan doors! We hope to see the HX1 in production in some form or another one day.
