Peugeot HX1 concept debuts in Frankfurt - shoes included [video]

Shoe designer Pierre Hardy provides the footwear accessories to this elegant concept

This is the Peugeot HX1 Concept - designed in concert with shoe designer Pierre Hardy.

The shoes come as an accessories to this concept (see photos), which is also meant to showcase what a future Peugeot vehicle could look like.

The drivetrain here is real-enough, though, with the HX1 fitted with Peugeot's HYbrid4 technology. The all-wheel drive diesel-electric combines a 2.2 liter HDi unit with 150 kW (204 PS / 201 bhp) to power the front-axle while a 70 kW (95 PS / 95 bhp) electric motor drives the rear wheels. Total output is 220 kW (299 PS / 295 bhp).

The plug-in hybrid HX1 has a range of up to 30 km (18.6 miles) in all-electric mode with a fuel-economy rating of 3.2 liters/100 km (88 mpg UK / 73.5 mpg US) and CO2 emissions of 83 g/km.

Peugeot and Renault, both bring, probably, the hottest car concept in the industry. However, none of their concepts ever made it to production...

Seems like the Peugeot comes up with some whimsical and creative designs and then water them down to something bland and boring at production.

The RCZ is a great start; this should follow to make Peugeot a strong rival to Citroen as Best French Car Design Firm! Great shooting-brake/GT coupe body style conceived as an MPV. Potentially a ground-breaking design if left virtually unchanged from Concept to Production.
