After its commitment in the Total concept car (exhibited at JEC Europe 2013), CCP Composites is now involved in a breakthrough project led by Total and Peugeot: the design of a technological demonstrator, the 208 Hybrid FE.

The aim is to create a vehicle combining real driving pleasure (0 to 100km/h / 0 to 62 mph in just 8.0 seconds) and low CO2 emissions (49g/km)—this means halving the emissions of the most economical petrol engines.

CCP is contributing front body parts made by infusing carbon fibers with vinyl ester resin, as weight saving is a major factor for the success of the project. CCP Composites materials are also being used for some interior parts, based on Enviroguard resins, which give the compartment an innovative and ecological appearance.

The demonstrator will be achieved and revealed in September, during the International Motor Show of Frankfurt (Germany).

The project was recently announced during the International Motor Show of Geneva (Switzerland).
