Citroën’s Hypnos - a Spell-Binding New Concept

Citroën’s Hypnos - a Spell-Binding New Concept Car for the Paris Motor Show

With the 2008 Paris Motor Show just a few weeks away, Citroën has unveiled the star car for its home show, the Citroen Hypnos

An exceptional and 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 dynamism of a coupé with the elegance of a saloon and the space of an SUV. Powerful, flowing and expressive, the exterior styling identifies the car as one to rouse the emotions.

The initial appeal of the exterior styling is echoed inside the cabin, with the imaginative use of colour and the 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.

The special hybrid technology used on Hypnos highlights Citroën’s commitment to the environment and shows once again that driving enjoyment and efficiency are not compromised by this strong ecological focus. With its 150 kW engine, Hypnos combines dynamic performance with low fuel consumption and emissions: 4.5 l/100 km and 120g/km of CO2).

Illustrating the advantages of hybrid technology through a high-tech approach, Citroën has designed a beautifully proportioned coupé with bold styling.
