Peugeot will present two concept cars at the Geneva motor show in March, including a compact diesel buggy that has two engines.

According to , the Peugeot Hoggar two-seater concept car consists of a carbon honeycomb shell reinforced by two upper longitudinal roll-over bars made from stainless steel, each with a diameter of 76 mm. These tubes also serve as an air intake and air conduit to the front engine and rear engine.

The powertrains are deployed transversally, one at the front, the other at the rear, and give it the attributes of a four-wheel drive vehicle. Each powertrain incorporates the same turbocharged four-cylinder Diesel Hdi engine with dual overhead camshaft and 16 valves. Each powertrain's maximum power is 133 kW, which means a combined power of 266 kW and a maximum torque

of 800 N.m.

Futhermore, each engine's exhaust has a catalytic converter, a particulate emission filter (PEF) and a silencer.

From a style point of view, the bonnet's front end envelops the grille. The bonnet extends into the passenger compartment through dual, rounded sections that pass through the windscreen and culminate in two instrument panels.

A global electronic control unit distributes instructions to both engines from a single accelerator pedal and a single gearbox control. The Hoggar has two separate fuel tanks, each with a capacity of 80 litres.

The vehicle can be driven with one engine... Peugeot describes it as the "sportscar for extreme conditions". Instead of doors, it has two small panels, which open in gull-wing style.

Peugeot will also introduce the 807 Grand Tourisme concept to coincide with the launch of its new 807 with a V6 engine.

It has motorised side sliding doors and a panoramic glass sunroof. Its ride height has been lowered by 50 mm, wityh 18-inch wheels, more aggressively styled headlamps, longitudinal aluminium roof bars and special body sills.

The central console features a DVD player, refrigerated storage areas and electrically retractable foot rests.
