Peugeot Exalt Concept Restyled for 2014 Paris Motor Show

/ Comments

Elegant concept given a new look for European debut.

Unveiled at the Beijing Motor Show in April, the Peugeot Exalt Concept was the follow-up to the breathtaking Onyx concept, cars that were created to showcase the carmaker's future design language and technology. In China, the Exalt's bodywork was made up of hand-beaten bare steel panels and a unique red "shark skin" textile. For Paris, Peugeot has opted for a gray back end, while the interior receives 'Newspaper Wood' trim made from recycled newspapers.

A digital instrument panel, folding touchscreens on the center console and toggle switches on the dash complete the unique cabin. The boot uses a pantograph mechanism to give access to the Hybrid-Kick Concept, a foldaway electric scooter that lives under the floor of the 4.7-meter long four-door coupe. Motivation comes from a hybrid powertrain consisting of a 1.6-liter inline-four rated at 270 horses mated to a six-speed auto and a 70-hp electric motor powering the rear axle for a combined output of 340 hp. Peugeot boss, Maxime Picat said: "With the Exalt Concept, the brand has reasserted its position and opened a new chapter. We are moving forward, resolutely, with confidence."
