Peugeot presents the SXC concept car

Not long ago, Peugeot informed everyone about the 508 appearing in China and then announced the arrival of another new concept. Now we know the carmaker was talking about the SXC Concept car. The model was created in the China Tech Center in Shanghai.
The design of the car was specially made for the Chinese market and the high driving position and strength, its fancy style that defines the vehicle just confirms it.
About the exterior it's easy to see the grille that goes just right with the size, the headlamps, 22-inch wheels and a panoramic roof. These last ones give an impulse that tells it's ready to go on the roads.
Like most concept cars appeared in the last period of time, the engine is a combination between a combustion engine at the front of the car and an electric motor at the back. The first one is responsible with the front axle and the other one with the back wheels. This is actually a great thing as all four wheels can be driven when both the engine and the motor are working simultaneously. The safety the car gives is actually increased and it's just perfect for bad conditions. The electric engine can work alone without any emissions at very low speed.
