The green age of automotive technology is upon us with the Toyota Prius, Nissan Leaf, and even the Smart Car are being seen as everyday consumer cars, and hybrids seem to be the next logical step for any car manufacturer; so what’s to stop the world’s supercars from becoming hybrids as well? Peugeot responded to that question with their Onyx concept car.
As you can see from the drawings, this is one slick looking ride and nothing like most hybrids you see roaming the city streets. This is a diesel-electric hybrid with a 3.7-liter V8 engine paired with an electric counterpart for a total of 680 horsepowers to provide power and pride as you race towards a greener tomorrow.
The concept car is set to be shown at the Paris Motor Show in just a few weeks, and it is not even using brand new technology. The same engine design was used in Peugeot’s 908 HDi FAP race car that won the Le Mans 24 hour race in 2009, so now they have brought it to the high-level consumers’ hands.
