Peugeot 207 Epure conceptMon, 11 Sep 2006 00:00:00 -0700
Eight years ago, the Peugeot 20Heart show car previewed the 206CC, which brought folding metal roofs to the masses. Since then, Opel has re-released the Tigra, while Nissan has retorted with the Micra CC in the mini-cabrio stakes. Accordingly, Peugeot will update their range with the 207CC, previewed here as the 207 Epure that will be displayed at the Paris Motor Show.
Painted white, the show car also aims to reflect ecological credentials: powering it is a hydrogen fuel cell-based engine, technology speculated by Peugeot in their ATV concepts at the 2004 Paris Motor Show. Other than that and the revised rear, the Peugeot 207 Epure remains similar to the hatchback on which it is based, ready to evolve into the 207CC for Q2 sales next year.
