According to Peugeot, French automaker Peugeot's China Tech Center has created the SXC, a premium hybrid crossover designed specifically for the Chinese market.


The SXC (which stands for Shanghai Crossover Concept) is fitted with a variation of Peugeot's HYbrid4 system, which bundles a small turbocharged four-cylinder engine driving the front wheels and an electric motor driving the rear wheels. The 1.6-liter THP engine makes 215 horsepower, while the electric motor adds 70kW, for a combined output of 308 hp. Peugeot says the combination returns average fuel economy of more than 40 mpg.


The SXC is fairly substantial, measuring 191.7 inches long overall. The roomy four-passenger vehicle rides on 22-inch wheels shod with Michelin 255/40R22 tires.

Other features include rear-hinged rear doors, LED lighting and brushed-aluminum accents.



I wonder how much it would cost for this fine crossover to be shipped to little ol' me? Probably way more than the actual worth of the vehicle.

I could use something like this in my life.
