Peugeot has really managed to put their HYmotion technology center stage in Paris. The three-wheeled HYmotion3 Compressor is a combination of a scooter and a car and the slick aesthetics on this one makes it completely drool worthy. It also includes an electric motor in each of its two front wheels and a petrol engine in the rear.
The two wheels are autonomously motorized by individual wheel-mounted hub motors and have no connection to the four-stroke 125cc engine that powers the rear wheel. The vehicle also includes benefits like a glass bubble roof that shields both the driver and the passenger from harsh weather. The design scratches off rear-view mirrors, as this function is carried out by two display screens on the instrument panel, offering optimal rear vision.
The best part of this vehicle is that the engine shuts down when it's not needed and the electrically-driven front wheels are capable of powering the machine. This concept breaks the barriers of the "regular" monotonous design, while making it appear stylish and incredibly efficient.
