Peugeot Onyx Scooter Concept

The matte black and copper color scheme and sharp lines of the three-wheeler show the family resemblance to the Onyx Supercar.

The Onyx Scooter offers two different configurations: Sport Mode and Urban Mode.

In Sport Mode, the riding position is similar to that of a superbike with the rider’s feet pointing towards the rear. With the center ClipBox removed, the Onyx goes into Urban Mode with the rider adopting a scooter-like position with feet forward and head up.

The Onyx Scooter Concept utilizes a plug-in hybrid powertrain combining a 400cc (0.4-liters) internal combustion engine with an electric motor to drive the extra-large 200/50 R17 rear tire.

The system delivers an output of 45kW or 60Hp and 58Nm (43 lb-ft) of peak torque allowing for a maximum speed of 150km/h (93mph). It consumes 2.0 lt/100 km (117.6mpg US or 141mpg UK), and has a range of 30km (18.6miles) at 50km/h (31mph) in ZEV mode, and up to 500km (310 miles) in combined mode.
