PostHeaderIcon Peugeot L750 R HYbrid Vision Gran Turismo

.

In 2013, Mercedes-Benz launched the AMG Vision Gran Turismo, a retro-inspired supercar developed for the launch of the Gran Turismo 6 video game. It was the first Vision GT car ever made and started a big thing that saw all major automakers bring their own concepts into the game. In all, no fewer than 21 Vision cars were unveiled for the Gran Turismo 6 until 2016. These came from 16 different carmakers, including BMW, Volkswagen, Aston Martin, Chevrolet, Mazda, Lexus, and SRT. Come 2017, and we’ve already seen five concepts unleashed for the new Gran Turismo Sport game, the latest of which is the Peugeot L750 R Hybrid.

The second Vision Gran Turismo concept coming from Peugeot, the L750 R HYbrid is actually an evolution of the L500 R HYbrid that saw the light of the Gran Turismo day in 2016. The new concept car has a more aggressive exterior with upgraded aerodynamics, as well as a more powerful hybrid drivetrain. The L750 R HYbrid is available for all 17 locations and many tracks in the Gran Turismo Sport video game and can be customized in any color. You can also enter the car in a 24-hour race on Twitter if you’re into getting retweets for each lap driven.

Continue reading to learn more about the Peugeot L750 R HYbrid Vision Gran Turismo.

Exterior

“Setting the new car apart from the old one is the redesigned splitter”

Essentially a more aggressive version of the L500 R HYbrid, the L750 concept is identical to its virtual predecessor save for the redesigned aerodynamic package and the new livery. The front fascia is just as aggressive, featuring a V-shaped nose and boomerang-shaped headlamps that flank the lion badge. Setting the new car apart from the old one is the redesigned splitter, which is slightly larger, and the wings placed on each side of the bumper.

Onto the sides, there are two major upgrades to talk about. First, the new concept has a roof scoop, which in real life would enhance engine cooling. Second, the game car rides on forged magnesium wheel, which shave a few pounds of the previous concept.


2017 Peugeot L750 R HYbrid Vision Gran Turismo - image 737168
“The L750 sports a huge wing for enhanced downforce, a feature you won't see on the L500”

The similarities between the old and the new concept cars continue around back, where both vehicles employ the same V-shaped decklid and diffuser with the center mounted brake lights at the center. This design reminds me of boat-tail style cars from the 1930s, although I have a feeling this wasn’t Peugeot’s aim.

Anyway, the L750 gets a huge wing for enhanced downforce, a feature you won’t see on the L500. The livery is also new, combining various shades of gray and silver with red and blue stripes. Like most race cars recently introduced by Peugeot, the L750 features “Red Bull” and “Total” logos. On the front hood, a checkered pattern rounds off the spectacular livery.

Interior

Note: Peugeot L500 R HYbrid Concept pictured here.

“The layout is as extreme as they get and looks as if inspired by a spaceship”

There are no photos or information about the interior, but this isn’t surprising given this concept car was created for a video game. However, Peugeot did launch interior renderings of the previous concept car and we can have a look at that to find out more about the L750.

The layout is as extreme as they get and looks as if inspired by a spaceship. There’s only one seat at the center and everything looks to be made of carbon-fiber, including the red painted seat. The steering wheel too is made from lightweight materials and looks more like a controller rather than a conventional wheel. But this is far from surprising given that this concept was designed with racing in mind.

Note: Peugeot L500 R HYbrid Concept pictured here.

“Arguably the most interesting features are the holographic projectors located at the front of the cockpit”

Arguably the most interesting features are the holographic projectors located at the front of the cockpit. According to Peugeot, they display vital information about the car’s performance and the track ahead, as well as a detailed map. A HUD from the future if you will.

Given that the French carmaker had nothing to say about the L750’s cockpit, it’s safe to assume that no changes were made to the L500 design. Which is actually pretty cool since the previous concept was already as futuristic as they get.

Drivetrain


2017 Peugeot L750 R HYbrid Vision Gran Turismo - image 737163
“Output has been increased from 500 to 750 horsepower in the new Vision Gran Turismo car”

It’s a bit weird to talk about a drivetrain in a car that only exists in a video game, but Peugeot insists that the L750 features a high-performance hybrid under the shell. This was also the case with the L500, but output has been increased for the new Vision Gran Turismo car. Specifically, while the L500’s gasoline engine was rated at 270 (virtual) horsepower, the L750 hits Gran Turismo Sport tracks with 580 horses at its disposal. In addition, it has an electric motor that cranks out 170 horsepower with the help of a liquid-cooled lithium-ion battery. The L500 had a similar layout, but with two motors, each rated at 115 horses.

Total output in the L750 is estimated at 750 horsepower, a 250-horsepower increase over the L500. In addition to being more powerful, the L750 is also 385.8 pounds lighter, tipping the scales at 1,818.8 pounds. Now that’s quite a impressive power-to-weight ratio, too bad this car doesn’t exist in real life…


2017 Peugeot L750 R HYbrid Vision Gran Turismo - image 737158
“The L750 will be able to hit 62 mph from a standing start in 2.4 seconds”

Peugeot says that the L750 will be able to hit 62 mph from a standing start in 2.4 seconds. In the Gran Turismo Sport video game, obviously. That’s a tenth-second quicker than the L500, which is a bit disappointing given the significantly lighter car and the 50-percent power bump.

Other specs listed by the French maker include a seven-speed, dual-clutch gearbox, an engine and transmission assembly mounted on the rear axle, a dual-circuit hydraulic braking system with four ventilated carbon disc brakes, and independent suspension all around.

Conclusion


2017 Peugeot L750 R HYbrid Vision Gran Turismo - image 737160

While I’m not a big fan of Gran Turismo and virtual vehicles don’t really turn me on, it’s actually great that automakers go through all the trouble to create these Vision Gran Turismo concepts. Most of them may not exist in real life and their drivetrain specs are usually of the “here’s a nice dream we had last night” variety, but the video game industry is now big enough to make these efforts worthwhile. Hopefully some of the technology inside Vision cars will make it into production models at some point.

  • Leave it
    • You can only drive it in Gran Turismo

Read our full review on the 2016 Peugeot L500 R HYbrid.

PostHeaderIcon Official: Peugeot L750 R Hybrid Vision Gran Turismo

Video games are such vital part of car manufacturers’ publicity efforts that they come up with new, updated versions of their virtual model, just so that gamers would remain interested in their brand. This is the new Peugeot L750 R Hybrid Vision Gran Turismo, launched in Gran Turismo PlayStation game as the hotted-up version of the L500 R Hybrid

Now, this is a relatively easy way of staying ahead of the curve since it’snot like Peugeot actually had to spend any real effort updating the concept. They just got some new graphics and made up some impressive specs for the previous version. And voila, there you have it, the new Peugeot L750 R Hybrid Vision Gran Turismo. But if you are the kind of person that takes virtual stuff more seriously than real life, you are going to like what they have done here.

True to their environmental ambitions even in the realm of fantasy, Peugeot has made the L750 R Hybrid Vision Gran Turismo even more efficient than its predecessor. The hybrid system that powers the racing car consists of an internal-combustion engine and an electric motor. The petrol engine produces 580 horsepower and a top engine speed of 10,000 rpm. That is backed up by a 170-horsepower electric motor. With a total of 750 horsepower delivered to the rear wheels via a sequential 7-speed gearbox, the L750 R can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.4 seconds.












Other highlights of the new Peugeot Gran Turismo racing concept include a weight of 825 kg, liquid-cooled lithium-ion battery, dual-circuit hydraulic braking system and four ventilated carbon discs, independent front and rear suspensions, and forged magnesium wheels. The new Peugeot may feel exactly like every other car you have driven in the game – which is to say, the feel of pushing buttons on a joystick – but we have to say it does look quite cool. It probably won’t affect the design of any future production model, but hey.

PostHeaderIcon Peugeot eF01 Electric Bicycle Launches in France

While other car makers are stepping up their electric game with new, well, cars, Peugeot decided to start small.They have just come up with this foldable electric bicycle called Peugeot eF01. It’s a tiny scooter with a small electric motor, and it costs €1,999.

Peugeot eF01 Electric Bicycle seems like an excellent mode of transportation to get about in busy cities like Paris or London. But you have to admit it is not a terribly dignified way of getting about. I mean, unless you are one of the models in the pictures, chances are you will look like a complete dork on this thing! But hey, that’s a small price to pay to move around the city with ease, dodging the traffic and not causing any pollution.






The idea is that you come to the center of the town, park your car, and unfold your Peugeot eF01 Electric Bicycle for getting into the the congestion zones or other areas where taking a car would be a pain in the butt. The eF01 weighs only 18 kilograms and can be folded or unfolded in three simple moves. It has a lithium-ion battery for a range of up to 30 km, it can reach 20 km/h, and it comes with disc brakes for safety. The eF01 can be stored and charged in the boot of any vehicle that has a 12-volt outlet, such as the new 3008 and 5008.

It’s all good and well, but I would rather walk that last 10 or 20 km than to be seen on a scooter like this. Or, I would take a cab for like 20 euros instead of shelling out two grand for one of these.

PostHeaderIcon Iran’s Emerging Car Market and the French Domination of it

Joint venture Iran

In the aftermath of the 1979 revolution and the war that followed it, Iran, one of the biggest and most ethnically diverse countries in the Middle East, became largely isolated with limited access to the world’s markets. While this self-inflicted malady certainly helped some industries to become self-sufficient, it wreaked havoc with the Iranian car market and sent it into a coma from which it is only starting to wake up. 

And boy is it coming back with a vengeance! Decades of sanctions and government-imposed ban on imports created a huge appetite for modern cars in Iran’s sizable market and when it was finally allowed to breath a little a few years back it just went bonkers. For the last decade or so the Iranian car market has been on a steady rise. All segments, from cheap economy to high-end luxury, seem to be insatiable with sales increasing year after year even amid political turmoil. In fact, Iran’s car market has far surpassed its real estate segment and has proved more steady as well. The latest estimates project a 2 million vehicle market by 2020, and that is based on the current state of affairs with American brands absent from the equation and only a few European players commuting to a half-hearted presence.

That is where the French come in. Today a Peugeot is as much a “national” car in Iran as it is in France. Pretty much the same goes for Renault. It is amazing to realize that a semi-facelifted version of the ancient Renault 5 used to be produced locally in Iran until only a few years ago. The same is true of the Peugeot 405, only it is still being produced under license to this day in its original form as well as in a number of other guises. This “historic” partnership, unencumbered by any sort of rivalry,  has allowed the French automakers to benefit enormously from that vast market.

In recent years with the easing or partial lifting of global sanctions against Iran the market has to some extent opened up to other brands, especially to those from the Far East. Chinese car makers are enjoying a mushroom-like growth in Iran both in imports and local production. And of course, the Koreans are taking home a significant portion of the pie. But that is of no moment to the French, because you see Peugeot and Renault are the pot in which the pie is baked. Granted, with a number of serious players now present in the field they have been forced to step up their game and introduce newer models and higher standards, but their winning cards is their strategic partnership with the two biggest, government-backed car makers in Iran, IKCO and SAIPA.

Today Renault signed a joint venture agreement with the Industrial Development & Renovation Organization of Iran (IDRO) and PARTO NEGIN NASEH Co, an importer of Renault products in Iran. This will include an engineering and purchasing centre to support the development of local suppliers as well as a plant with an initial production capacity of 150,000 vehicles a year, supplementing Groupe Renault’s existing capacity of 200,000 vehicles a year in the country. In addition to the vehicle plant announced in September 2016, an engine plant is also planned with a capacity of 150,000 units a year. The first products of this plant will be Symbol and new Duster (Renault’s subsidiaries are also having field day), joining Tondar, Tondar pick-up, Sandero and Sandero Stepway. And that is excluding imported Renaults which include pretty much every model they offer in Europe.

So there you have it. In all those years while American car makers couldn’t get near this huge market because of some pointless sanctions, and while German and even Japanese automakers were too cautious to get involved in any meaningful way, the French saw a golden opportunity, swept in and created a base of operations – colonized the market, one could almost say – so that now they are practically running the country’s car industry.

This can prove to be the single most ingenious move in the auto industry when the Iranian car market grows bigger than that of Europe.

PostHeaderIcon President Macron Gets a Peugeot 5008

macron-5008-0

After enjoying a DS7 Crossback from Citroen for a while, French President Emmanuel Macron switched on Bastille Day to that car’s sister, the Peugeot 5008. The man evidently has a penchant for mid-range French SUVs, and we have to admit it is pretty cool. 

It is cool because most men in Macron’s position would think of themselves as this big shot who deserves the best and most luxurious stuff. This guy though, he’s down to earth and is perfectly content riding around in a regular SUV which, for all we know, is not even bulletproof. Doing this Macron let the working classes know he is one of them while at the same supporting France’s auto industry. After all, it is a pretty big endorsement when the President of the country uses your products.

The new Peugeot 5008 SUV, launched since the beginning of June in France, is produced in the factory in Rennes and benefits from the “French Origin Warranty” label, awarded by the Pro France association following a certification procedure carried out by Bureau Veritas. The new Peugeot 5008 is a new dimension SUV with a powerful style, designed for people wishing to get rid of the traditional silhouettes. The presidential car is a unique vehicle, with specific adjustments meeting the requirements of enhanced security. So turns out it is bulletproof after all.

PostHeaderIcon Modern-Day Peugeot 205 GTI Imagined by Designer

Peugeot-205-GTI-Modern-Day

Don’t read too much into this, but the head of Peugeot design has recently penned a modern-day Peugeot 205 GTI. He maintains this was a fun project he did for himself to blow off some steam with, but we won’t be surprised at all if a few years from now they actually bring back the icon. 

Resurrecting iconic models is an established practice among car makers, but producing Peugeot 205 GTI presents Peugeot with a couple of tiny problems. For one thing, they have a naming system that doesn’t allow going back, you see. They are now at 208 with their hatchbacks, so they can’t jump back and make a 205 all of a sudden. Then there is the question of marketing, and whether they’re going to make or lose money on such a project.

Of course, both of those problems can be circumvented by making this modern Peugeot 205 GTI a special and strictly limited edition car based on the current 208 GTI platform. And we really do hope to see this thing happen, not just because the 205 GTI is quite possibly the best and coolest hot hatch of all time (along with the original Golf GTI) but also because we really like what we are seeing here in these sketches. This re-imagined 205 GTI looks crisp and modern, and yet true fans can instantly recognize the clues from the original subtly integrated into its design.

PostHeaderIcon Peugeot 508

The Peugeot 508 hasn’t been around all that long, having been introduced as an all-new model for the full-sized segment in 2011. It eventually spawned an Estate version and a crossover-like vehicle shortly thereafter. Now six years later, it’s about time for something fresh. As such, Peugeot is planning to usher in the second-generation model, and we just received the first round of spy shots. Word has it that the new 508 will ride on Peugeot’s new EMP2 platform, which is also found under the 308 and C4 Picasso. More importantly, however, is the fact that it’s overall design is changing so much that it will actually look more like a four-door coupe than a traditional sedan. Motivation will come from a range of gasoline and diesel engines, and there’s a plug-in hybrid being planned as well.

The next-generation 508 should offer some pretty significant improvements, too. It should get a larger offering of driver assistance technologies and maybe even some semi-autonomous features as well. So, what will the new 508 offer in terms of looks, comfort, and technology? Well, take a little walk with me, and we’ll talk more about it.

Updated 07/10/2017: The next-gen Peugeot 508 has been caught testing in wild for the second time. It has yet to drop any camo or show off signs of DNA from the Exalt Concept, but this time around we do get a small glance at its interior.
Expect to see it out and about at least one more time, hopefully with less camo, before making its debut sometime in early 2018. Until that happens, check out the interior section below to find out what we can make out so far.

It is always hard to follow a successful act with something that is even better and more impressive, but with the new Peugeot 3008DKR Maxi rally car Peugeot Sport seems to have pulled it off. The competition machine is a racing version of the 3008 SUV and a heir to two consecutive Dakar Rally victories. 

The Maxi in Peugeot 3008DKR Maxi’s name is a hint at the size of the vehicle which is 20 centimetres wider than its predecessor. Now that is not because of looks or space, but due to the fact that suspension tracks on each side have been increased by 10 centimetres. The result of this, combined with new front and rear track rod ends and driveshafts, is enhanced stability and dynamics at high speed.

The handsome Peugeot 3008DKR Maxi is currently in the final stages on testing and will celebrate its debut at the on the 2017 Silk Way Rally that goes from Russia to China next month in the hands of nine-time world rally champion Sebastien Loeb, who finished second on the Dakar this year and is contesting the Silk Way Rally for the second time. He will be joined on the adventure, which runs from July 7-22, by team mates Stephane Peterhansel and last year’s Silk Way Rally winner Cyril Despres: but they will be driving the current specification of Peugeot 3008DKR, as seen locking out the Dakar Rally podium earlier this season. Next Year this illustrious company will be joined by Carlos Sainz and they will set off to tackle the next Dakar Rally.

PostHeaderIcon Relive Sebastien Loeb’s Record Run Up Pikes Peak: Video

In case you were unaware, the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb is getting underway right this very second, and that means a whole swath of race-ready rides congregating in Colorado to take a swing at the 156 turns and high-altitude craziness that is America’s Mountain. And while simply getting to the top unscathed is in itself quite the accomplishment, some are vying to etch their names into the history books by beating the current standing record time of 8 minutes, 13.878 seconds, set back in 2013 by legendary rally champion Sebastien Loeb in a Peugeot 206 T16. But, as you might expect, such a feat is easier said than done, as evidenced by the above-featured video documenting every turn of Loeb’s incredible blitz to the clouds.

From the off, it’s clear Loeb is holding nothing back. The same talent that earned him an unprecedented nine World Rally Championship titles is very much on display, as is his incredible bravery as he uses every inch of pavement, even with nothing more than heart-stopping drops in place to greet him should he muck it up. The video combines a multitude of camera angles, including a passenger seat POV, in-car shots, bumper shots, and helicopter shots, providing the viewer with a fantastic overview. Also of note is just how clean the run is, with very little in terms of sliding or corrections. Will 2017 be the year Loeb’s record falls? By the look of it – probably not.

PostHeaderIcon Peugeot Partner Tepee Electric

The second-generation Peugeot Partner was introduced in 2008 alongside its PSA sibling, the Citroen Berlingo. Like its predecessor, the current Partner is available in both panel van and passenger versions, but the latter has been renamed the Partner Tepee. Offered with four-cylinder gasoline and diesel engines since its introduction, the Partner gained an electric drivetrain in 2013. The utility vehicle was updated in 2015 with a redesigned exterior and a revised cabin. At the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, Peugeot introduces the electric version of the Tepee passenger model.

Called the Partner Tepee Electric, the “leisure activity vehicle,” as it’s being described by Peugeot, uses the same electric motor as the pavel van version. Mileage is similar, while the Tepee Electric will also benefit from tax exemption with new VED regulations from 2017. Peugeot also added a range of new features, especially in the connectivity department, as well as a comprehensive battery warranty program.

The new Tepee Electric is basically a passenger-friendly alternative to the panel van EV for customers that need the cargo room of an utility vehicle, while also being able to transport up to four passengers when needed. It also enables Peugeot to finally offer an alternative to the passenger version of the Renault Kangoo Z.E.

“Whether for personal or business use, the Partner Tepee Electric stands out thanks to its blend of practicality and efficiency. The vehicle offers an impressive range and is easy to run and maintain, making it a highly attractive option for those looking to switch to electric,” said David Peel, managing director of Peugeot U.K.

Over the past few years, automakers have gone crazy with the concept of autonomous vehicles – something that has led to some futuristic, spaceship-looking concepts that have somehow embedded themselves into our brains as the direction cars will take some time in the future. Think about models like the Toyota Concept-I, the Faraday Future FF 91, or even the Honda NeuV – all of which blend four wheels with wild design and so much technology we’re not sure what to do with it. Now, Peugeot is joining the party.

It might be a little late to do so, but it’s put together the Peugeot Instinct, a shooting brake concept – yes, it’s a true shooting brake – that manages to bring connectivity, relaxation, driving pleasure, and style all into one exciting package. Samsung’s Artiktm Cloud system is used to connect the car to other devices like smartphones, watches, and even smart devices in your home when within range. So far, Peugeot has said little about what motivates this concept, but it’s apparently functional as the brand has said that the “lengthy bonnet hints at the 300 horsepower delivered by the PHEV powertrain.”

Of course, Peugeot concepts rarely turn into production models, and Peugeot’s concept designer, Matthias Hossann, has told Autocar that this concept won’t see production. But, it is quite likely that some of the styling seen here will find its way onto production models, so at least there’s that to look forward too. After all, the Peugeot brand has made some pretty big strides lately in the name of design with models like the 2017 Peugeot 3008, the new 5008 SUV, and even the updated Peugeot 301 all helping to usher in a new era for the brand that promises a bright and stylish future.

But, before we toot Peugeot’s horn too much, let’s take a better look at this concept before it makes its official debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2017.

PostHeaderIcon Peugeot Breaks New Ground With New 5008 SUV

French automaker Peugeot is in the middle of a comprehensive reorganization of its lineup. The strategy saw two important vehicles being overhauled, with both the 3008 and 5008 ditching their MPV roots to become full-fledged SUVs. The 5008 just made its public debut at the 2016 Paris Motor Show, where it displayed its new, imposing appearance with sculpted body lines integrated into the company’s latest design language.

On the outside, the new 5008 is quite the looker. No longer a spacious, yet ugly MPV, the 5008 has everything it needs to compete against crossovers like the Volkswagen Tiguan and the new Skoda Kodiaq. It’s also the better looking proposition (to me, at least) and has the advantage of a seven-seat layout. The third-row seats are foldable and easy to remove, which will give the 5008 an impressive cargo capacity of 37.4 cubic-feet.

Besides the dramatic change of appearance and the versatile interior, the 5008 also comes with numerous luxury options. Highlights include a panoramic glass roof, massage-function seats, and a premium sound system. It also features a comprehensive package of safety and driver assist features such as hill ascent/descent control, automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assistance, and advanced grip control. Adaptive cruise control and a 360-degree parking camera are also offered in order to make driving long distances and parking easier.

As usual, the engine lineup includes the already familiar small-displacement, four-cylinder engines. Gasoline options include the 1.2- and 1.6-liter units, while the diesel lineup consists of 1.6- and 2.0-liter mills. These can be paired to five-speed manual, six-speed manual, and six-speed automatic transmissions. The only downside is that the 5008 can’t be had with an all-wheel-drive system. Peugeot offers a clever traction control function, but the lack of a proper AWD system will leave some potential customers disappointed.

PostHeaderIcon Peugeot 208 Active Design

Launched in 2012 as a replacement for the ageing 207, the Peugeot 208 was designed from a clean sheet and bolted onto an upgraded version of the PSA PF1 platform. It also received new and updated four-cylinder engines and debuted a couple of three-cylinder gasoline units dubbed PureTech. Another important feature that debuted with the hatchback is the i-Cockpit, combining the compact steering wheel with high-level instrumentation, and TouchScreen technology. The i-Cockpit is now available in just about any Peugeot out there. In 2013, the 208 spawned a race-spec T16 Pikes Peak version that set a new record at the famous hill-climb event. A facelift was introduced for the 2015 model year.

Sold for nearly four years now, the Peugeot 208 is here to stay for a couple more years until the French introduce a redesigned model. Although it’s not to say that the hatchback is outdated, Peugeot is doing its best to keep the lineup fresh and the customers coming into dealerships. For 2016, the French firm introduced two new special-edition models, one of which is the Active Design. Based on the Active trim, the Active Design comes with extra standard features and brings customers savings of up to £2,240.

The not-so-good news is that the model is only available in the United Kingdom for the time being. Still, let’s have a closer look at the 208 Active Design to find out what makes it special.

PostHeaderIcon Peugeot 208 Allure Premium

It was March of 2012 at the Geneva Motor Show. The interior lighting was as bright as the sun, and all of the new cars were glistening. Okay, so it probably wasn’t all that elegant, but it is an exaggerated summary of the what it was like when Peugeot debuted the 208 for the first time. Produced in the company’s brand new plant in Slovakia, the 208 initially started out as a three-door hatchback. A year later, Peugeot dropped a five-door hatch version that made cramming into the back seat a little bit easier. The 208 isn’t what you would call a hot hatch by any means – it’s nothing more than a morning snack for a hot hatch like the Focus RS, but as a “supermini” or “B-segment” car, it serves its purpose quite well in crowded cities.

As a replacement for the Peugeot 207, and built on PSA’s PF1 platform, this little hatch is offered with no fewer than three gasoline engines and three diesel engines – all of which are four-cylinders that deliver anywhere between 68 horsepower and 198 horsepower in the 208 GTi. Oh wait, there is a little bit of hot hatch in that DNA. Anyway, with a few more years on the calendar before a new model is ushered in, Peugeot has decided to expand the 208 lineup with a pair of special editions models. This one is the Allure Premium edition, and it brings a number of enhancements that Peugeot says will save you money over the standard model equipped with the equivalent options.

With that said, let’s take a quick look at what makes the Allure Premium so special and why I’m taking the time to tell you about it today.

PostHeaderIcon Peugeot To Offer New Electrically Assisted Scooter

Late last month, while unveiling the new 3008 crossover, Peugeot also revealed its intentions to produce a new electrically assisted scooter called the e-Kick. Designed to “cover the ‘last-mile’ of any journey,” the e-Kick is the product of a partnership between the French automaker and Micro Mobility, a Swiss company focused on urban mobility solutions. The e-Kick offers “electric assistance based on user movements,” with a range of 12 km (7.5 miles) and speeds up to 25 km/h (15.5 mph).

A lithium-ion battery housed in the foot platform provides the juice, while the rider gives a little extra human push power to make up the difference. The electric motor is integrated directly with the rear wheel, while a foot brake offers regenerative capabilities to keep the battery fresh. The whole thing weighs in at 8.5 kg (18.7 pounds). The handlebar was designed by Peugeot Design Lab, and allows the e-Kick to fold up quickly for compact storage. It’ll also let you roll the e-Kick on the front wheel without the need to physically carry it, which is helpful in crowded areas, or if you run out of electricity.

The e-Kick will also fit into a “dockstation” in the trunk of the new 3008, charging it up on the commute and providing a secondary transport option when needed. Alternatively, the scooter can top off from an external plug in about an hour.

Look for the e-Kick to go on sale sometime towards the end of the year.

PostHeaderIcon Peugeot L500 R HYbrid

It was 100 years ago that Dario Resta and his Peugeot L45 averages a speed of 83.89 mph and won the Indianapolis 500 race of 1916. That was only one of three victories that Peugeot managed to attain between 1913 and 1919 at the Indy 500. Now in 2016, Peugeot has announced the Peugeot L500 R Hybrid to pay tribute to such an accomplishment and the “Charlatans” team that made it possible. The concept is said to be a “futuristic interpretation of the Indy Spirit” and a “racing concept for intense driving sensations.”

Matthias Hossann, Peugeot’s Concept Car and Technological Advance Chief, said, “With Peugeot L500 R Hybrid we’re paying tribute to Peugeot racing exploits dating to the early 20th century. Inspired by this spirit of performance and innovation we wanted to convey a sculptural, elegant and technological view of the future of Peugeot motorsport.”

Let’s be honest, at first glance this concept is highly futuristic but gorgeous at the same time. It features strong character lines, muscular wheel arches, and an impressive livery. In short, Peugeot took its time developing this concept and it looks amazing for that reason. With a long hood and a short tail, and a low profile that has this thing sitting low to the ground, it could, in theory, be a preview of what race cars in the future will look like. Of course, we have no idea how the future will unfold, but let’s take a good look at Peugeot’s new concept and see just how Peugeot sees the future of race cars and their design.

PostHeaderIcon PSA Launches New Electrification Solutions For Its Future Hybrid Cars

There is no denying it – hybrid and all-electric vehicles have made their mark on the automotive market and aren’t going away anytime soon. As such, every manufacturer is trying to get its own piece of the pie. PSA Group, the folks behind cars like the Peugeot 2008 and the Citroen C4, just presented its new strategy for electrification at the Innovation Day event earlier today. They are known as the Common Modular Platform and the Efficient Modular Platform.

Gilles Le Borgne, the Executive Vice President of research and development for PSA, said, “These next-generation hybrid and electric technologies will complement our range of internal combustion engines, thereby enabling PSA Group to offer its customers a diversified line-up of technologies that meet all of their mobility needs. This innovative strategy clearly demonstrates the Group’s commitment to global, sustainable solutions that will allow us to take on the energy transition challenge.”

The Efficient Modular Platform – dubbed EMP2 – will be used for compact and premium models and has already been introduced in the Citroen C4 Picasso and the Peugeot 308 back in 2013. Starting in 2019, the platform will be used to deploy the group’s first plug-in hybrid models. The plan includes SUVs and crossovers that will have electric four-wheel drive and up to 37 miles of all-electric range. The biggest advantage, however, will be that interior space won’t be compromised thanks to the design of the platform and battery location. Furthermore, PSA is claiming there will be efficiency gains of up to 40 percent in urban driving conditions.

The Common Modular Platform, dubbed CMP, was co-developed with Dongfeng Motors and is slated for use in compact city cars, compact SUVs, and core sedan models. Claims in the press release point to the development of multi-purpose electric vehicles with a range of up to 279 miles with one minute of charging providing up to 7.45 miles of range. According to PSA’s recent press release, the plan is to introduce four all-electric models by 2021, with the first one hitting showrooms as early as 2019.

PostHeaderIcon Is Peugeot Already Testing the Next-Generation 2008?

It’s been less than three months since Peugeot unveiled the facelifted version of the current 2008 crossover, and it appears that the French firm is already testing a next-generation version. That’s the word from our paparazzi, who claim that the test mule in the images above is the second-generation 2008.

Although it looks nothing like a Peugeot and its nearly identical to the upcoming Opel Meriva that’s already been spotted testing in Europe, the different front end makes us believe that this could be next 2008. And the reason for that is simple. With GM and PSA having already worked together to develop successors to the Opel Meriva and Citroen C3 Picasso, it makes a lot of sense that the other brand from the PSA Group, Peugeot, to benefit from the new platform.

Both the new Meriva and C3 Picasso will ditch their minivan roots in favor of a more SUV-like approach, which Peugeot already did with the 3008 and likely wants the next-generation 2008 to follow a similar path. The camouflage is obviously too heavy to spot the essential details, but with the Opel and the Citroen prototypes sharing the same body panels except the front fascia, it’s likely that the 2008 will have a similar design and stand out by means of Peugeot’s newly redesigned grille and bold bumper seen on the larger 3008.

The only confusing detail here is the surprisingly low ride height, which wouldn’t make sense for a crossover in this category. This could change as the model gets closer to its launch date and the camouflage becomes thinner to let more details hit the surface. Speaking of the vehicle’s launch date, there’s no official timetable as to when that may happen, but the redesigned 2008 could break cover in 2017 and go on sale for the 2018 model year in Europe.
