Peugeot e-Legend Concept Gets A Lick (Or Three) Of Virtual Paint

With the e-Legend Concept that was unveiled recently, Peugeot is really stepping up its game beyond the crossovers that consumers simply cannot get enough of these days.

It has a retro styling jammed up into a two-door coupe body style, with lots of sharp angles and soft curves that remind of the classic 504, but with a modern twist.

The interior is revolutionary, too, with a minimalistic approach, blue Alcantara upholstery, a giant infotainment screen sitting in the middle of the dashboard, a digital instrument cluster positioned above the uniquely styled steering wheel and a tiny center console.

Now, despite its classic approach, the e-Legend Concept is all about the future beneath the skin. A 100 kWh battery pack provides the required juice to the electric motors that put out an impressive 463 PS (456 hp / 340 kW) and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) of torque. The 0 to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) sprint takes less than 4 seconds, and top speed is 220 km/h (137 mph).

The e-Legend Concept has been criticized for looking a lot like Nissan’s IDx Freeflow study, especially from certain angles. However, in the latest set of renderings, the study looks more French than Japanese, as Aksyonov Nikita has “applied” three different virtual liveries.

The first one combines the colors of the French flag, which run along its length, the second one adopts the Gendarmerie (that’s French for police) dressing, and the third is a rally racer, adding not only a colorful wrap, but extra lights in the front bumper as well.

    Please correct me if I am wrong, but the upholstery is not Alcantara; it is “velours”, which I think can be translated as “velvet”.

    • They were referring to the concept, who uses Alcantara, But the original 504 did used Velour.

        Hi ArcherOnCars, I checked again and all sources I found indicate the concept uses velvet upholstery as the original 504 did.

    I know it’s a bit tricky and stupid but hey ! that how we do it 😉

    • Well it’s like people keep saying Italian police is Carabinieri, or all British police as Scotland Yard.

    The Gendarmerie is not the police. The Gendarmerie is part of the army but has roughly the same mission as the police in rural areas.
