French automaker Peugeot has revealed its SxC Concept vehicle that is set to be presented at the upcoming Shanghai Motor Show. An interesting fact about the SxC is that it has been designed and developed by Peugeot's Chinese technical center. Standing for Shanghai Cross Concept, the SxC Concept is a rather large SUV that's a little longer, lower and wider than the Porsche Cayenne.
The technical center in Shanghai was instrumental in designing the concept, as well as its reverse-hinged suicide rear doors. Inside, the cabin sports a blend of leather and brushed aluminum finishes with blue LED lighting. This four-seater is powered by a 1.6-liter turbocharged gasoline engine that's capable of developing 218-horsepower. The engine is mated to Peugeot's Hybrid4 technology, which sees the addition of an electric motor at the rear axle, thereby giving the engines a combined output of 313-horses.
Peugeot hasn't announced any production plans yet, but the automaker has mentioned that it will launch one new model per year in China for the foreseeable future.
