Peugeot Prologue Concept

Peugeot will be displaying the Peugeot Prologue Concept on its home turf at the 2008 Paris Motor Show. It pretty much looks like a conventional 5-door hatchback although it appears to be higher and larger than the likes of the Peugeot 308.

It seems that Peugeot will be releasing a production MPV called the Peugeot 3008 built on the 308 platform soon and the Prologue previews the 3008’s styling cues. It doesn’t look like it will sit 7 or even 6 so this may be a 5-seater MPV in the style of the Citroen C4 Picasso (as opposed to the C4 Grand Picasso).

Not much details have been revealed but under the hood is a petrol-electric hybrid system that produces a joint peak output of 200 horsepower. Is this the 1.6 liter turbocharged BMW-Prince engine mated to an electric motor? CO2 output is 109g/km on the combined cycle or 0g/km in fully electric mode.
