Following a teaser announcement back in early March, French carmaker Peugeot has fully revealed the Hoggar, a new pint-sized pickup truck designed and developed in Brazil for the domestic market.
Borrowing a name from a two-seater buggy concept from 2003, the Hoggar pickup makes use of a hybrid platform developed from the rear end of the Partner van and the front end of the Brazilian-market 207 supermini, which itself is derived from the older Peugeot 206 and not the latest 207 hatch sold in Europe and other parts of the world.
The Hoggar has a load capacity of up to 742kg or 1,636 pounds and a volume of 1,151 liters. It also features a detachable tailgate that can hold up to 300kg or 661 pounds in weight.
Peugeot’s small pickup truck will be launched in Brazil on 15th May, in three equipment levels and two Flex Fuel engine options, an entry-level 1.4-liter unit developing maximum output of 82HP when running on alcohol and 80HP on petrol, and a 1.6-liter version that produces 113HP on alcohol and 110HP on gasoline.
