Our favourite part of any car show are the concepts, design studies shown off by automakers to test audience reaction. At the 2008 Paris Motor Show, we've caught a wide variety of concept cars demonstrating everything from small, eco-friendly city cars to high-performance exotics. Some of these cars are merely a gleam in their designers' eyes, while others are already being slated for production.
Hypnos is Citroen's design for an environmentally sound crossover vehicle. Hypnos uses a hybrid system, Citroen's HyMotion4, comprised of a 2-litre diesel engine up front and an electric motor on the rear axle. With this system, the car can be driven about 2 miles on electric power before the diesel kicks in, and gets about 52mpg.
