2003 Peugeot Hoggar Concept

The Hoggar is far from being your normal concept car, being in the image of the extraordinary, wild and spectacular desert in southern Algeria which it is named after.
The Hoggar has free-flowing lines, a sober interior and hi-tech fittings, and offers a spectacular level of power and efficiency.

With its twin HDi engine with particle filters, offering 360 hp, this concept car is particularly environmentally friendly, as well as having advanced suspension and road holding that is optimised for extreme obstacle-crossing capacity.

With visible mechanical components that look like the drawing of powerful musculature, the Hoggar combines a compact volume with low-slung proportions, accentuating the impression it gives of a wild animal ready to leap.

Resembling an imposing 2-seater buggy, the Peugeot Hoggar looks avant-garde and unreal at first sight. Vast open spaces spring to mind, easily accessible to judge from the car's robustness and latent power. Getting there would be an even more pleasing and relaxing prospect in the knowledge that this concept car relies on unique and proven HDi engineering solutions, enhanced by original technology, such as the adoption of two power trains and appropriate wheels and suspension.

In elevation, the Hoggar has no overhang, thereby offering a highly compact volume with condensed proportions. The front wing rises over the tyre and falls back gently, before rising again abruptly at the rear wheel. This creates a general profile that is both elegant and dynamic and which, combined with the rear projection, expresses the strength and robustness of a crouching animal ready to pounce.

The Hoggar is a sports car for extreme conditions, with two seats and two up to the minute power trains deployed transversally, one at the front, the other at the rear, giving it the attributes of a 4-wheel drive vehicle. At the front of the carbon structure, as at the rear, there is a tubular sub-frame designed to support each power train. Attached to the carbon shell at six points at the front and four at the rear, these tubular frames also accommodate all suspension fittings, including the double wishbones. Both radiators are set well back at windscreen level to reduce the length of the front overhang. While the radiators are common to both engines, the one on the right features a low temperature loop to cool the intake air. Air from outside is captured at the front of the vehicle and is supplied to the radiators through a conduit incorporated in the bonnet lining.

2003 Peugeot Hoggar ConceptEach ML 6C gearbox is driven by electrically-controlled hydraulic actuators. The sequential gear change operates by means of control plates under the steering wheel or a lever on the central console. A fully automatic mode is also available. The Hoggar can of course be driven with only one of its two power trains. The suspension of this concept car features double wishbones at the front and rear. Each axle is equipped with an anti-roll bar.

On board this ultra high-tech open-air vehicle, natural leather and aluminium feature strongly. Two people can sit in the one-piece, cast light-alloy seats, which have leather upholstery. Each occupant is secured by a safety belt, a true four-point harness connected to four small inertia reels. The fascia panel features two central rev counters, the left-hand one for the front engine and the right-hand one for the rear engine.
