With the 2008 Paris Motor Show just a few weeks away, Citroën is unveiling Hypnos, a concept car illustrating a new take on the world of exceptional vehicles. An elegant cross-over vehicle, Hypnos draws on a range of creative technologies to deliver outstanding performance and environmental efficiency, combined with subtle but powerful motoring sensations.
Hypnos is an impressive vehicle, combining the vitality of a coupé with the elegance of a saloon and the space of an SUV. Powerful, flowing and expressive, the exterior styling identifies Hypnos as a car to rouse the emotions. The initial appeal of the exterior styling is confirmed by the cabin, with its original colours and its 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.
Innovation serving the environment
The special hybrid technology used on Hypnos highlights Citroën’s commitment to the environment and shows once again that this strong ecological focus is always accompanied by driving thrills and efficiency.
With its 200 bhp (147 kW) engine, Hypnos combines dynamic performance with low fuel consumption and emissions (4.5 l/100 km and 120 g/km of CO2). Illustrating the advantages of hybrid technology through a high-tech approach, Citroën has designed a beautifully proportioned coupé with bold styling.
