Paris - Peugeot is honouring both its past and its future in a stunning way with the new e-Legend concept car, which has been revealed ahead of its Paris Motor Show debut.
While its retro-modern styling takes inspiration the iconic 504 coupe, the concept tackles tomorrow’s trends with fully autonomous capability and enticing battery-powered performance.
Its electric powertrain produces 340kW and 800Nm, allowing for a sub-4-second 0-100km/h time, while the 100kWh batteries are said to enable a range of up to 600km between charges, according to the WLTP protocol.
It would be a shame if this vehicle was only designed to drive itself, which is why engineers devised four distinct driving modes - two autonomous and two manual - all catering for different moods and scenarios.
The driverless modes are ‘Soft’, which focuses on comfort and reduces information displays to a minimum, and ‘Sharp’ which maximises connectivity.
