The 'Hybrid Air' is a new hybrid car that combines oxygen and gasoline sources to create an eco fuel alternative. Developed by PSA Peugeot Citro├źn, it's an all-new technology that combines these two fuel sources in internal combustion engines and compressed air storage.

This brand-new concept car is one step further in the path to achieving fuel consumption of 2 l/100 km. The power lies in the way powertrain adapts to driving styles, adjusting independently to one of three models: air, gasoline, and the two combined. The ending result is using less gas and thus, emitting less carbon dioxide, in a comfortable and stylish drive.

This car is estimated to save 45% in gas during city driving, offering a 90% increase in range compared to conventional engines.
