Peugeot e-Legend Concept magnifies the DNA of the brand by combining its heritage with the most advanced technologies in the automotive world. Peugeot proves that a hyper-technological vehicle can encompass the traits of a desirable vehicle. The choice of the silhouette of a Coupé for an autonomous vehicle elevates the driving experiences by using very modern codes, a template and realistic and pragmatic proportions. The emergence of new electric platforms opens the scope of possibilities to designers by removing the technical constraints related to combustion propulsion.

At the front, the look of the vehicle is identifiable thanks to a visual signature with three claws and two double modules. The technical area is located under the projectors, it includes all the functions of driving aids. The entire front mask is encased in the front wings and split in two by a black aluminium beam, a legacy of chrome-plated stainless steel bumpers.At the back, the iconic visual signature of the Peugeot range is also three claws and treated in a very technological way. The third brake light, located at the top of the rear window, covers its full width with a multi-blade assembly that reflects itself.

The flanks are treated in three distinct layers with, in particular, an extension of the technical platform in the lower part and a large glazed area, inspired by the sheet metal/glass ratio of the Peugeot 504 Coupé. These large glazed surfaces flood the interior of Peugeot e-Legend Concept with a beautiful light. The wheel arches are carved in negative and the one at the front includes an air passage. It is emphasized by a metal arch surrounding the side windows and magnifying a rear windscreen encased and faceted. Visible from the outside under the rear quarter windscreen, a screen displays a personalized greeting and the charge level to its user before departure. It also warns people outside that the car is driving in autonomous mode. The touch-opening door control is skilfully concealed in the side window.

With a view to offering an elegant and luminous interior, the choice of the designers focused on warm materials, counterbalancing the cold digital material: a contract to the frenzied race to all-digital. Velvet is making a comeback! Chosen in the noblest of uses for its silky and pleasant touch, silk velvet is cleverly mixed with a modern technical mesh that offers more freedom in terms of decoration. This weft is woven digitally and especially for Peugeot e-Legend Concept from a shiny thread reminiscent of the hue of velvet. This material can be found in Peugeot 3008 or 5008.

The upper parts and doorways are made from Paldao wood by HERVET MANUFACTURIER®. Made from renewable forests, this exotic wood is very reminiscent of the furniture of the 60s in rosewood or ebony. The dark veins of this variety bring out the turquoise blue on the seats and the floor. This modern interpretation of the wood is reminiscent of the GT finished dashboards in Peugeot 3008, 5008 and 508. To complete the immersion and personalization of its interior, a fragrance diffuser scents the vehicle. EX-NIHILO® has created two perfumes specific to Peugeot e-Legend Concept.

Spread throughout the interior, the digital material (or digital interpretation of real materials) is divided into two major themes: bronze-like line networks or networks of lines imitating cabinetmaking wood. It’s broadcast on 16 screens of different sizes, for example: 49 inches curved under the front helm to the occupants, 29 inches in the doors or 12 inches in each sun visor. Digital materials have been the subject of in-depth reflection to fit perfectly and blend into the passenger compartment. The centre console provides access to the main driving controls through a rotary control and a 6-inch touch screen. To the left of the steering wheel, a digital toggle bar is composed of contextual and configurable commands depending on the driving mode.

The design of the H seats and the vertical padding are inspired by the Peugeot 504 Coupé: more volume with the most compact dimensions possible, comfort fit combining ease and stimulating support thanks to the use of shape memory foams (like a tailored suit). The headrests are crossing, adjustable or fully retractable and integrated into the seat. The Peugeot Responsive i-Cockpit® capitalizes on the Peugeot i-Cockpit® that characterizes the models of the brand. It includes a headset with three dials and an ultra compact steering wheel.
