This contains fuel. Being a concept car, this is not a lie. You can see the liquid sloshing around in there, the rest of the fuel tank is concealed down behind the seats. Peugeot has also developed a scent for the Onyx. Again, this is not a lie. It's a concoction of all the natural materials that have been used in the car, formed into a perfume and held in a separate reservoir within the crystal, from where it's blown through the cabin to tantalise your nostrils. How tantalising, I can't say, as the scent has yet to be added to the blown-crystal tank.
