The Peugeot e-Legend Concept car was debuted at the Paris Motor Show this week and we are ecstatic! This magnificent machine is Peugeot’s vision for the future with it’s entirely electric and advanced autonomous driving system.
Peugeot got their inspiration from the 504 Coupe which was first launched in 1968. The blend of retro and futuristic vibes make this muscle car a sight for sore eyes. While the rear end tail lights have a vintage French look, they've been updated with thin, sharp-looking looking LED lights.
Jean-Philippe Imparato, CEO of Peugeot, said:
“Peugeot e-Legend Concept is not just a technological manifesto. This is the vision of a brand actively focused on an optimistic and ultra-desirable future. For Peugeot, autonomy and electric are synonymous with even stronger sensations. Boredom will never be part of our DNA.”
The interior is kitted out with nostalgic blue velvet upholstery and the futuristic steering wheel folds into the dashboard. The e-Legend is powered by a 456 horsepower electric motor and 590lb ft of torque, with a top speed close to 140mph and a 0-62mph time below four seconds.
Although Peugeot have stressed that this is only a concept, we certainly hope that this a glimpse of what is yet to come!
