The 3-wheel Peugeot HYbrid3 Evolution Concept will be shown at the 2009 Milan International Cycle and Motorbike Show. It has two electric motors and a 300cc engine.
Peugeot is exhibiting the new HYbrid3 Evolution Concept at the 67th Milan International Cycle and Motorbike Show. The three-wheeler is a roofless version of the HYbrid3 Compressor from the 2008 Paris Motor Show. The promotional video highlights some of its features.
The HYbrid3 Evolution Concept is powered by two electric motors located in each of the front wheels and a naturally aspirated engine at the back. The 300cc engine is good for 30kW (41hp) while the two motors generate 2x3 kW from lithium-ion batteries. A brake energy recovery system is installed. Peugeot claims an average fuel consumption of 2.0 litres per 100km (141.2 mpg imp) and C02 emissions of 48 g/km.
The front suspension consists of wheels that incline and the suspension assemblies are on the wheel hub. The HYbrid3 Evolution has a very low centre of gravity for its type of vehicle. It is 82cm wide and can accommodate a passenger at the rear, just like normal motorbikes.
Some exterior features include LED lights, front mud guards and rear lights with a hi-tech finish.
