The spell-binding Citroen Hypnos Concept
September 5, 2008 With the 2008 Paris Motor Show just a few weeks away, the world’s oldest automotive industry is getting set to strut its stuff on home ground. Not surprisingly, the French like to save the best for the Paris Show and this year, Citroën is unveiling the Hypnos. An elegant cross-over vehicle, Hypnos draws on a range of creative technologies to deliver performance and environmental efficiency, combined with subtle but powerful motoring sensations. Powerful, flowing and expressive, the exterior styling identifies the car as one to rouse the emotions. If you’re wondering about the image, that’s the interior – pretty amazing heh what?
The initial appeal of the exterior styling is echoed inside the cabin, with the imaginative use of colour and the ability to make technology more human and approachable. A powerful sensory experience awaits the driver and passengers, taking them into the realm of pure magic.
The special hybrid technology used on Hypnos highlights that driving enjoyment and efficiency are not compromised by this strong ecological focus. With its 200 hp engine, Hypnos combines dynamic performance with low fuel consumption (60+mpg) and emissions (120g/km of CO2).
