The brief for this concept was to produce a vehicle for up to six people,
offering strong styling, that is sporty and efficient and at the same time
giving a unique driving sensation.
To achieve this, the HX1 transcends
the notions of adaptability in all areas, with its extreme aerodynamics ('flaps'
are deployed to optimize aero efficiency according to vehicle speed), its
tapered, low MPV architecture and its HYbrid4 power plant integrating 'plug-in'
Futuristic Exterior Styling
The HX1 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
aluminum window surrounds, millimeter-perfect panel gaps and flush fittings,
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 harmonies 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 recognizable
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.
