Peugeot unveiled at the Paris Motor Show a prototype that anticipates the future vision of the French brand as far as SUVs are concerned. As an important detail, has a mechanical hybrid that lets go 50 miles one modo 100% electric.
The question to ask is whether prototype primarily reach mass produced or not. We will see, but probably the influence for a new SUV brand Lion in the coming years, or who knows, perhaps invest in it as we have presented.
Use the same platform as the Peugeot 308, but hardly producible elements mounted in series, as opening scissor doors. Also mounted wheels 23″ to make dramatic, as if it were a super sports.
Transmission 6 speeds and use the same engine as the RCZ R, the 1.6 THP de 270 CV, Combined with an electric plug system that would provide 115 CV extra. Thanks to this hybrid combination of power the Quartz be able to go 50 km without using the combustion engine..
Another interesting point of the Peugeot Concept Quartz is found inside the car, where we found a fabric created through a digital process of recycled materials. The curious thing about this upgrade is that it gives us the ability to create large textile surfaces without cuts or joints that can be annoying. Interesting process that has never been used in the automotive industry.
