Peugeot has recently unveiled the exciting-looking e-Legend Concept that represents its passionate approach in taking crossovers to a whole new level of its own. It doesn’t look like it’s interested in a common sleek profile.
The concept sports multiple retro touches and a coupe-like shape. Its exterior combines both sharp and soft details that at some point, it will remind you of the 504 of the 1960s, now with a modern taste.
The interior brings a new, minimalistic style. It features blue Alcantara upholstery, a big infotainment display located in the middle of the dash, an electronic instrument cluster, a small center console and a distinctively designed steering wheel.
Although the e-Legend has a classic appearance, it actually wants to be a futuristic concept. The show car is propulsed by a powerful electric motor capable of cranking out 456 HP and 800 Nm of torque. The motor gets its energy from a 100 kWh battery pack. Acceleration takes nearly 4 seconds to hit 62 mph, which is quick, and top speed can reach 220 km/h.
The concept has been receiving criticism as it also reminds people of the Nissan IDx Freeflow. Certain angles clearly give you that Freeflow look, almost like they were siblings. But the latest renderings by Aksyonov Nikita give the e-Legend a fresher look. It’s quite colorful and even more attractive than before.
You can see the French flag’s colors displayed on the first rendering at the top of this post, the next one dons the French police dressing, there’s also another version below that looks like a rally racer, incorporating more than just a colorful face, it also has additional front lamps in the bumper.
