Paris 2018: Up close and personal with the Peugeot e-Legend concept
Forget about the press photos, it looks even more amazing on video
Peugeot’s e-Legend prototype is a retrolicious twist on the brand’s 504 Coupé, half a century from its launch. Besides, it’s done right, and we’re not the only ones to notice that.
Carfection’s Henry Catchpole paid the Peugeot stand a visit at the 2018 Paris Motor Show and got a taste of what the e-Legend looks like in real life.
As you might have found out by now, Peugeot’s beautiful concept is an all-electric proposition that can even drive itself, provided the one behind the wheel isn’t in the mood for some thrills.
Powered by a battery pack with a capacity of 100 kWh, e-Legend sends 340 kW (456 hp) and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) to all four wheels, arrives to 100 km/h (62 mph) from a standstill in under four seconds and can keep the sprint to a top speed of 220 km/h (137 mph).
Other that that, it packs all the modern tech worthy of a future autonomous vehicle, sharp but appealing edges and that muscle car look we all love to watch.
You'll find all that and more nicely laid out in the video below:
