Designer Marco Aurelio Gala has envisioned a futuristic eco friendly car dubbed as Peugeot Hyperion for the 5th edition design contest 2008. The emission free vehicle derives its name from Greek mythology and means a titan. The fully electric car for once sheds its diminutive stature to embrace the roaring of Peugeot brand coupled with muscular forms and shape.
The unconventional fully electric ride would be powered by electric engine placed in its frontal part – three-phase AC synchronous motors – which gets fueled by a lithium-ion battery pack. Vehicle’s overall dimensions include a length of 4.5m, a width of 2.5m and a height of 1.6m and its body parts are made of carbon fiber reinforced plastic – in order to minimize the weight. Peugeot Hyperion concept’s top has electronically been limited to 125 mph.
