October 15, 2008 It's not a car and it's not quite a scooter. Peugeot's HYmotion3 compressor concept vehicle is an original mix of previously seen design elements - a semi-enclosed shell akin to BMW's C1 or the Benelli Adiva and the carving 3-wheel layout of Piaggio's MP3 - with hybrid drivetrain technology added to produce a 2-person vehicle that promises low CO2 emissions Green-Business-Travel as well as greater safety and weather protection than conventional scooters.
The Concept, which brought together designers from both Peugeot's motorcycle and automobile departments, uses the 15kW (20 BHP) supercharged petrol engine from the Satelis scooter along with a 3kW electric motor http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electric_motor in each of the front wheels to provide a maximum output of 21 kW (29 bhp). This means it not only offers the stability (which we can attest to) of the 3-wheel layout but also 3-wheel drive traction.
Works fine for me.

I love technology! My brother worked recently in a smart building that had a network of web sensors and it was facinating to see how everything interconnected. Keep up the posts, I love reading about this! http://www.eesensors.com
