Default Peugeot SR1 Concept

Quote:
At this year’s Geneva Motor Show, Peugeot will unveil a new concept dubbed SR1, a new two-door hardtop showing a lighter, more elegant look for future Peugeot cars. Although the concept’s front-end is less aggressive than the “big cat” look of current Peugeots. According to the manufacturer the SR1 revisits the great traditions of grand touring cars of the past such as a large bonnet, flowing wings and a very low centre of gravity. The new concept is powered by an 1.6-liter gasoline engine capable to deliver 160 kW (218 bhp) but also by a rear electric motor developing 70 kW (95 bhp). In electric only mode, the car becomes a ZEV (Zero Emission Vehicle), while its combined cycle fuel consumption is only 4.9 litres/100 km or 119 g/km of CO2

Yes.. but regardless, IMO, Peugeot makes most of sexiest car designs on the planet.

Looks more like what the 2nd gen Miata SHOULD have evolved into, rather than what they did design.

To this day I would have like the 407 GTS coupe to have come to the US.

I don't follow how that has to do with what I posted. The Sky was good, along with a lot of Saturn's that didn't get advertised enough. People thought of square inset headlights and rounded plastic side panels when you said Saturn.

And I think of foreign crap when I hear Peugeot. Doesn't mean it sucks though.

Right, because you, and I, and a lot of people here will judge a car by what it is and what it can do. The average consumer plays the game by their mental image of the brand.

A personal example is a lady I work with told me one day about a car she saw and really liked. She couldn't remember what the brand was or what the car was and asked me to help. She described it and I said I think it was a Saturn Sky. As soon as she heard Saturn, she said no way it wasn't a saturn and kept trying to figure it out. I pull up a picture of the Saturn Sky and bingo, it's exactly what she saw. She was blown away that it was a Saturn. It probably sounds like im making this up because its the exact car you mentioned. True story though. This was about 5 months ago I think.

I'm still not sure why we got onto this topic though. I said I think it's what the Miata should have looked like today, if the progression had followed the styling of the second generation.

No Peugeot that looks similar to that concept will ever see the light of day. What might matter is the commitment to a lower center of gravity, if it comes to fruition. But with cars growing ever taller, a lower center of gravity might not be as good as it sounds.

Default Geneva show: Peugeot SR1

New car news



03 March 2010 - 11:00
Geneva show: Peugeot SR1

Peugeot doesn't do big swanky roadsters. And even if it did, they wouldn't look like this. At least up to now.

The official line is that Peugeot won't make a car based on this concept, but after about five minutes of repeated badgering, the design boss of Peugeot and Citroen, Jean-Pierre Ploué, said that well, maybe, ummmm, it wasn't impossible. Maybe he just said it to get us off his back, but he said it: "We're looking at it seriously. Sooner or later we'll have to replace the 407 Coupe."

But for now the SR1's number one job is to show that Peugeot is shifting its general design direction, and some of these lines and shapes will make their way across the range.
Sure enough, a few yards away, there's the ‘5 by Peugeot' concept, a largely undisguised model of the 407 replacement. Which will be called 508. It has a SR1-ish nose. So it's farewell then to the smeared-upwards headlamps and slack-jawed grille of the current Peugeots. Shed no tears.

Peugeot's sister company Citroen has transformed its design these past few years. And now former Citroen design chief Jean-Pierre Ploué is shapes boss for both brands. He says it's now Peugeot's turn to move forward. But Peugeots will differ from Citroens, he says. "Citroen is about surprise. Peugeot is athleticism and precision and elegance."

Peugeot's design head, Gilles Vidal, did the SR1 and he says this new language is about reflecting the precision in how a Pug drives (well, the best of them do).

Like any self-respecting concept at Geneva, it's a eco-sports car. The engine is the 1.6 turbo we know well, but hopped up to 218bhp, driving the front wheels. The rear wheels get their own electric drive - that's the same Hybrid4 principle Pug has announced for the 3008 in 2011, and Citroen in the DS High Rider concept. In the SR1 the engine and motor combine for 313bhp and four-wheel drive.
