For this competition, Peugeot invited young designers to imagine the Peugeot of the metropolises of tomorrow. This concept car should be designed to be driven in the large urban cities of the future, while exhibiting key values of the 21st century.

With 2,500 projects and a presence that’s as international as ever, with participants from more than 95 different nations, the Peugeot Design Competition, running over a shorter time scale (only 1½ months to develop and submit a project), has given designers from all over the world an opportunity to express themselves and propose projects rich in style and innovation.

Indeed, the theme of this 5th edition has inspired all of these creative people to give shape to their vision of the motor car in cities of the future and to envisage a form of urban mobility that’s more versatile, more practical, more economic, but also more fun and more individual.
The projects also reflect the different cultures of our global society. From the simplicity of the Indian “Globe” project to the complexity of the German “Rugir” project, you’ll be able to admire the practicality of the Chinese “Oxo” project.
