The French really do make stunning concepts.
The 2017 Geneva Motor Show hasn't even started yet, but we are starting to see a few leaks already. Just this week, we saw the new Land Rover Range Rover Velar, which is set to compete with the Porsche Macan. And now, the latest leak comes from Peugeot from the official show website, but was quickly taken down, according to Autocar. The car is called the Peugeot Instinct concept, and it's a gorgeous two-door coupe that will preview the company's future design direction and a possible shift to electric drivetrains.
Unfortunately, there is only one image of the concept, so we will have to wait until Geneva to see the car in full. From what we can see, the overall shape looks great, and could make its way to actual production cars in the future. We see a bit of Volkswagen Scirocco in the shape, especially in the rear. The sharp, angled headlights lead into some really interesting running lights, which will probably be a lot smaller on a production car. Another interesting aspect about the front end is the grille-free design, meaning this is very likely an EV since it won't need a grille to allow air flow into a gas engine. If the Nissan Leaf looked this good, then maybe we would love it as well.
This isn't the first time that Peugeot has wowed us with a stunning concept. Back in 2012, Peugeot revealed the Onyx supercar concept, which unfortunately never reached production. In 2015 the company revealed a 493 horsepower hybrid hot hatchback called the 308 R Hybrid, but that too failed to reach production. We really can't wait to see the Instinct concept in full, but we will be much happier when actual Peugeot road cars start looking this good.
