The 2013 Peugeot Onyx is predicted to come with carbon fiber since it would help a lot to keep the weight low. The ride doesn’t come in full EV, but since Peugeot has sold the electric diesel hybrid in the form of HYbrid4 3008 plus 508 model, they don’t think it’s necessary to pack the Onyx with full EV power.
