Tec and Environment It may seem that electrification, the advent of increasingly advanced driver assistance functions, the development of the autonomous vehicle… are going to lead to a safer and more sustainable car. But less likely to enjoy driving.
As a brand that has taken care of road behavior and performance in its vehicles since its inception, PEUGEOT focuses on the future of the car by focusing on driving pleasure and comfort. Combining it with the highest levels of sustainability and safety. A philosophy that is expressed in the motto “Unboring the future”.
With the PEUGEOT e-Legend concept car as the first exponent. This way of looking at the future of the automobile is becoming a reality. In the acceleration figures of the PEUGEOT e-208 and e-2008, the 300 hp and driving modes "on demand" of the New PEUGEOT 3008 Hybrid 4 × 4. Or the super sports car that represents the 508 PEUGEOT Sport Engineered.
In a context in which technological advances seemed to lead towards a dull and gray future for the car in the interest of safe and sustainable mobility, PEUGEOT shook the board with the presentation of the e-Legend concept car, at the Auto Show in Paris 2018. An exciting vision of the future of mobility in the form of an attractive coupe. A combination that expressed that the development of technologies such as the autonomous vehicle and electrification are an opportunity to create new ways of enjoying the car and continue generating strong sensations.
The e-Legend Concept fully embodies this vision. A true object of desire that exalts freedom of movement and offers choice between various modes of travel and driving a 100% autonomous, electric and connected vehicle. A totally immersive experience. Thanks to the Responsive i-Cockpit, which adapts to the four available driving modes. Soft and Sharp, if you choose to ride autonomously, and Legend and Boost, if you choose to take control.
Beyond concept cars, the “Unboring the Future” philosophy reaches street cars. As demonstrated by the New 508 PEUGEOT Sport Engineered, a radical, ultra-sporty and electrified version of the brand's top-of-the-range saloon and shooting brake. The figures of its plug-in hybrid mechanics are impressive. It delivers a power of 360 hp and can reach a maximum speed of 250 km / h, all with emissions of just 46 g / km of CO2.
