Peugeot has always had a reputation for producing some of the most technologically advanced cars on the road. With the latest models featuring a fantastic selection of advanced safety features, infotainment setups and communication systems, choosing a new Peugeot is always an excellent option.
In 2015 Peugeot produced a selection of revolutionary and innovative concept cars and we’ve run our eye over three of them to see what we can expect from the company in the future.
Described by Peugeot as an electric urban coupé that ‘exhilarates all your senses’ the Fractal is an aggressive, dynamic looking concept designed to set pulses racing. Equipped with the latest technology, including a head-up display, compact steering wheel and touchscreen, it is a very exciting car.
Peugeot claims that the design of the Fractal has been inspired by sound, which means the electric drive system creates an exceptionally low level of noise. This sense of refinement is further enhanced by the Tall&Narrow tyres, making it a perfect car for the city.
The i-Cockpit set-up is based around the Peugeot 208, taken to the next level with sleek curves and ergonomic design providing an ambience unlike anything ever seen in a Peugeot car.
Unveiled at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show, the Fractal is clearly still some way off production. But if something similar does arrive on our roads it would be the perfect choice for city based drivers who want exciting driving mixed with refinement and verve.
First seen at the Paris Motor Show in 2014, the Peugeot Quartz offers a glimpse into the future of the SUV Crossover market. Sharp, modern design features, innovative use of materials and a sophisticated hybrid drivetrain make it one to keep an eye on for families.
Peugeot Brand Chief Executive Officer, Maxime Picat, said about the Quartz: “The Brand is showcasing its vision of the high-end automotive market. Peugeot is committed to developing exclusive concepts for its customers through outstanding design, innovative materials and unparalleled sensations.”
Combining the best parts of SUVs and adding saloon style, this concept is an eye-catching proposition. It is also the first ever vehicle to have digitally woven textile, which means polyester fibre is intertwined with recycled plastic water bottles. Improving the sporty nature of the Quartz there is a red hue that fills the grooves left by the woven design. Inside, the i-Cockpit features a head-up display with instrument panel on both sides of the steering wheel, giving easy access to the switches.
This concept should provide the basis for the future of the 3008, which will challenge the Nissan Qashqai and other high-quality SUVs such as the Range Rover Evoque.
The five-door concept Peugeot Exalt is a dynamic saloon that debuted at the Beijing Motor Show in 2014, and it signals the direction that Peugeot’s family range could head in the future.
Exterior features are less dramatic than the other concept models, but the i-Cockpit has been developed to provide more luxury and style. A head-up display and dash-mounted screens provide access to the advanced infotainment system while wood, leather and brushed metals offer grace and style. A four-cylinder turbo combines with an electric motor to produce a maximum output 335bhp.
Like the other concepts, this car won’t reach our showrooms in this form but some of the technology and design features will. This makes it an exciting time for Peugeot fans.
