Peugeot unveils its vision for the future at next month’s Paris Motor Show, a 100% autonomous, electric and connected car called the e-Legend Concept. Adopting a realistic and yet radically modern template, the e-Legend Concept carries the DNA of the Peugeot brand and rich heritage. To frame this vision, Peugeot has reinterpreted the exterior styling of the classic 504 Coupe from the late 60s and early 70s. The 504 Coupe’s styling is mirrored inside, with a similarly modern interpretation of that car’s retro dashboard, including digitised wood displayed on the car’s various screens and the 504’s three-dial binnacle electronically recreated.
The Peugeot e-Legend Concept offers four modes of driving, two autonomous and two manual, which can be selected depending on the road and traffic conditions, as well as the driver’s preference. When the e-Legend Concept is in either of the autonomous modes, the interior configuration changes, with the steering wheel retracting under the sound bar in order to make the 49-inch central screen fully visible. The front seats recline for extra comfort and the side armrests deploy automatically.
The Peugeot e-Legend Concept is powered by a 100% electric power train, with the 100 kWh batteries reaching 800 Nm torque and 340 Kw power, distributed to the four-wheel drive. This level of performance makes it possible to travel 0/100 km/h in less than 4s and reach a maximum speed of 220Km/h.
