Peugeot will introduce the sculptured SR1 Concept car at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show in March. It's a two-door, three-seat Grand Tourer with a hybrid powertrain.

Peugeot has announced a new concept car called the SR1. It's a Grand Tourer that comes with two doors and a hard top. The design is a glimpse of what the French marque plans to do in terms of future design direction.

Typical of a GT, the SR1 features a large sculptured bonnet, flowing wings, a low centre of gravity, sweeping sides and a chiselled rear design. LED headlights are a highlight, as is the new redesigned Lion badge.

The interior layout pattern is a 2+1 type which places two passengers up front and one in the middle rear. Leather and wood accents are evident inside the cabin while so-called high tech materials like nickel and satin-finished chrome adorn various parts. A chic touch is an exclusive wristwatch that fits into a dedicated housing on the fascia panel.

Power is supplied by HYbrid4 technology consisting of a 1.6-litre THP petrol producing 160kW (218hp) and a rear electric motor of 70kW (95hp). Total system output is 230kW (313hp) and AWD is engaged when the two systems are working together. Average fuel consumption is 4.9 litres per 100km while C02 emissions are pegged at 119g/km.

The SR1 will be shown at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show in early March.
