Geneva 2013: Peugeot to unveil 2008 Hybrid Air Green Vehicle

Wild compressed air technology from Peugeot

Not everything that will be on display at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show will be incredibly fast and incredibly expensive. There will be some arguably less exciting and more mundane vehicles on display at the show as well. One of these vehicles comes from Peugeot is called the 2008 Hybrid Air. The vehicle is unique because it gets power from a combination of a gasoline engine and compressed air.

Peugeot says that the technology is a key step in its attempt to create a vehicle that can achieve 140 MPG while reducing carbon dioxide emissions. The Hybrid Air vehicle is an urban crossover and will be shown for the first time in Geneva. The vehicle will use compressed air to assist or take the place of the gasoline engine during phases that consume the most energy such as accelerating and starting from stopped.

The technology uses certain components that are new to the automobile industry yet widely tested and used in other industries such as aeronautics. The system has an energy tank that contains pressurized air installed under the central tunnel of the vehicle and a low-pressure tank at the rear to act as an expansion model. The vehicle will have an air mode where it's completely driven by compressed air, petrol mode, and combined mode where both the gasoline engine and the compressed air system operate.

Peugeot-Citröen May Be Coming Back To The US In 2020

I'm sure there's a certain chunk of our readership who's spit-taking Orangina at the screen and crushing their croque-monsieurs in their hands in barely-contained glee. The brand we'd get would be DS, not exactly Citröen or Peugot, but it'd still be great to see some French ir ...

Citroën DS Divine Concept: The Seriously Bizarre French Star of the Paris Motor Show

Oct 6 2014 4:19pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Although France’s carmakers aren’t going to be producing anything we can buy anytime soon—although that could change in six years or so—they have a fine tradition of creating concepts that are often weird, sometimes wonderful, and occasionally both for their ‘home’ show at Paris. So this is where we tell you all about them. Actually, not so much. A tour of Hall 1, where the French manufacturers get to hang out, suggests an alar ...

Exclusive: Lotus CEO Outlines Plan to Save the Brand with Faster, U.S.-Legal Cars

Oct 6 2014 1:26pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Lotus doesn’t have a stand at the 2014 Paris auto show, but its newly appointed French CEO Jean-Marc Gales was in attendance, so we took the opportunity to grab an interview about his plans for the future of the brand. It’s been a baptism of fire for Gales. Even a resume that includes Peugeot-Citroën, GM, Mercedes, and Volkswagen little prepares him for the unique challenges faced by Lotus. This Paris show marked the fourth anniversary of when previous Lotus boss Dany Bahar u ...

Filed under: Performance, Wagon, Hatchback, Peugeot In the face of hot five-door hatches like the Ford Focus ST, Volkswagen Golf R and Renault Megane GT 220 (to say nothing of the Renaultsport Megane), it's high time that French manufacturer Peugeot added some life to its C-segment entry, the 308. This is the 308 GT, and while it won't pose a threat to hotter models like the Focus ST or Golf R, the availability of gas, diesel, ...
