The exterior design is defined by pure and elegant lines blended with technological details with the goal of creating an overall effect of timeless yet modern design.
The powertrain features the HYbrid4 technology, with a total output of 147 kW (200 bhp), four-wheel drive and an emissions level of 99 g/km of CO2 (or 0 in electric mode).
From the official Press Release:
With its dimensions, proportions and styling, the 5 By Peugeot concept is a response by the Marque to radical changes in the market for large, luxury saloons.
5 By Peugeot expresses the Marque’s vision and know-how of the large touring car market.
This concept car is designed and built to suggest elegance and precision, while maintaining the personality and dynamism typical of the Marque.
The design of the 5 By Peugeot concept has been guided by the ongoing research into balanced and streamlined body shapes.
The contours of its three-box body flow smoothly, unruffled and without interruption or embellishment from the end of the hood to the top of the boot: all surfaces are flush-fitting, with clearances between each element precisely determined to obtain an assembly quality rivalling that of a goldsmith. The overall effect is that of a vehicle “hewn from a solid block of material”.
The headlamps frame a unique front grille, characteristic of the Marque’s signature, whose aesthetic codes are reinterpreted following the example of the Peugeot SR1 concept car. Indeed this grille appears to be detached from the vehicle, as if suspended.
The new Lion naturally takes its place in a sculptured section at the end of the long aluminium hood.
The streamlined sides of the concept car are enhanced by bevelled, brushed-aluminium window surrounds, door handles in the same material, and sculpted 19” wheel trims.
The rear design suggests robustness and power. The particularly expressive lights are composed of three raised red clusters, also clearly distinguishing the vehicle at night; they are a reference to certain of the Marque’s historic models.
A 2.0 l HDi FAP 120 kW (163 bhp) diesel engine, mounted at the front of the vehicle, is combined with a 27 kW (37 bhp) electric motor at the rear.
This provides the concept car with an overall maximum power of 147 kW (200 bhp).
It also benefits from an electric only mode at low speeds, four-wheel drive on demand, and low levels of fuel consumption and emissions (3.8 litres/100 km or 99 g/km of CO2, or 0 in ZEV mode).
This modular technology can be combined with other naturally-aspirated engines according to market requirements, and will be available on different body shapes and different platforms.
