More EV and Hybrid Concepts for Paris: Venturi Automobiles and Michelin; Peugeot

Venturi Automobiles and Michelin are working together to produce a new-generation electric concept vehicle. The partners will unveil the concept at the 2008 Paris Motor Show, which opens on 2 October for the press.

The partnership allows Michelin to demonstrate the capabilities of its latest innovations on a high-performance vehicle. Venturi has built cars such as the Fetish electric sports car and a low-speed electric vehicle that can be recharged via roof-mounted solar panels or with a personal wind turbine (earlier post).

Venturi is also partnering with PSA Peugeot Citroën to supply electric vans based on the Citroën Berlingo First / Peugeot Partner Origin in response to a tender from the French Post Office, La Poste. (Earlier post.)

Peugeot will show a new hybrid concept at the Paris show, the Prologue. The 147 kW (200 bhp) Prologue will feature “new generation hybrid technology”, resulting in average CO2 emissions of 109 g/km.
