Peugeot E-Legend Concept takes us back to the future
Welcome to the Peugeot stand at the 2018 Paris motor show.
Now, French manufacturers usually pull out all the stops for that whole motor show.
And, this year is no exception with Peugeot [UNKNOWN] on the other with this, the e-Legend concept.
Now it's an electric car so it's looking to the future but equally it's also looking to the past [UNKNOWN] 504 Coupe A which was released here 50 years ago this year.
It's a very handsome thing.
The designer, Monseigneur Vidal Said, but he said once you produce a car that didn't, well, look like some smooth shuttle bus, basically, in terms of an electric car.
So something you can actually get behind, and you can imagine seeing this on your driveway, and it does look very, very good indeed.
It takes certain lines from the original 504 but makes them much sharper.
But it's on 19-inch wheels, which seems Seems reasonable.
Underneath it, it's got two electric motors, one on each axle.
Producing 456 break horse power, and 590 pounds foot of torque.
Range they're saying is about 370 miles, or 310 on a 25 minute fast charge.
Top speed 137 miles an hour.
Naught 60 in under 4 seconds.
Or which sounds very promising.
Inside the car we've got a very retro blue velour look.
But there are two driving modes.
There's the E legend mode which has three sort of, I suppose, iPhone size screens in front of you.
It's also equipped for level four autonomous driving, which means the steering will go away and you can relax and watch a film on one of the other screens.
That, all very modern.
It's also got an incredibly flat floor which is obviously cuz all the batteries are underneath so you don't have the transmission tunnel.
Which gives it a modern look without even trying.
To be honest I have to agree, this is an electric car I really would like to see stop at the curb outside my house
