    Riding Peugeot's Hybrid Bicycles: Electric Two-Wheelers Tested

    Auto writing can be quite a sedentary pursuit. You spend much of the day sat immobile at a desk. When you aren't doing that, you're sitting in a car. Or on a plane. Sometimes, you're sat at a table in a fancy restaurant being plied with food and drink, watching your gut grow. It was nice then, on a...

  • PSA Peugeot Citroen Hybrid Air concept

    Last year French automaker PSA Peugeot-Citroen launched a whole new take on the hybrid system: Hybrid Air. While previous air-powered cars have had little more substance than the air that drives them along, the French carmaker's system is set to appear in actual Peugeot production cars over the next few years. According to Autocar and Auto Express, the system is likely to make its debut in Peugeot's 2008 subcompact crossover in 2016. From there, it's likely to spread to other small Peugeot and Citroen models. The system uses compressed air exactly as a regular hybrid would use its battery...

    Peugeot, Citroen Research Compressed Air Energy Storage For Hybrids

  • Peugeot iON Electric

    When Renault launched its Zoe electric car at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show with a starting price of little over $21,000 (after the U.K's plug-in car grant), more than a few jaws hit the floor. After all, that's easily the cheapest proper electric car on sale in Europe, and even looks good in the U.S. where prices are typically lower. Now, French duo Peugeot and Citroen have announced (via TheChargingPoint) they're slashing the prices of the Mitsubishi i-based iOn and C-Zero electric cars. With European EV prices falling, will the U.S. follow? Price is still one of the dividing factors...

I suppose the last option is the closest to correct. It's got four wheels, but the rear track is narrower than the front track. And a...

  • Peugeot EX1 concept electric sports car

    How fast can an electric car get around the iconic Nurburgring Nordschleife in Germany? Until recently, the fastest official time for an electric car stood at 9 minutes and 52 seconds. Recorded last year in a BMW Mini E racing car, it was the first time an all-electric car had completed the course in under 10 minutes. But French automaker Peugeot has now snatched the title from the its nearby rival with its EX1 all-electric sportscar concept and a time of just 9 minutes, 1.338 seconds. While the time is still a long way from the 6 minutes and 47.50 second road legal vehicle record set in 2010...
