The H1 concept car will make its public debut at the Paris Auto Show in September and will use new styling cues. The new design will also make it to Peugeot’s entry-level vehicles.
Peugeot is making all the possible efforts to hide the future study’s details from us. However, the vehicle is expected to use similar dimensions to Citroen’s upcoming DS4. But the similarities between the two cars stop here, as the H1 will use a totally different styling.
The company’s chief designer, Gilles Vidal, has already made it clear that the brand will no longer use the “wide-mouthed frog”. Fortunately, he also mentioned some of the changes that will be made. This include more compact headlights and grilles (compared to the current over-sized ones), as well as lighter styling and more defined stances.
One of the aims that Peugeot wants to achieve with its new design is the emphasis on fuel efficiency and eco-friendliness.
Peugeot also wants to make changes under the hood of future models. The company will make the vehicles more efficient. This means that they will be lighter and will use new-generation diesel engines developed by the Peugeot-Citroen Alliance (PSA).
