Peugeot Onyx Concept

The Peugeot Onyx hybrid sports car concept is a new green supercar, that combines the aggressive exterior you expect from a supercar but with a green powertrain. The Onyx is powered by a 3.7L V8 diesel engine and an electric motor that combined gives the concept over 600 horsepower. Other unique features are the concept’s two-tone matte black and bronze exterior and its minimalist futuristic interior that looks like it’s straight out of a sci-fi movie.

Mitsubishi is using its stage at the Paris Motor Show to debut the all-new Outlander Plug-In Hybrid. When the Outlander PHEV is released early next year it will be the world’s first plug-in hybrid SUV. The Outlander PHEV looks almost identical to the gas powered Outlander, but is powered by a four-cylinder engine and two electric motors. The Outlander PHEV features three different driving modes and can travel up to 34 miles in full electric mode.
