Peugeot e-Legend Concept: Paris Motor Show

We won’t spend too much time on the Peugeot e-Legend concept unveiled yesterday in Paris Motor Show. No point in turning the knife in the wound, we’ll never get it here.

Why bother even writing about it? Well, because we want it darn it.

Very few if any concepts designed after classics have managed to capture the essence of the model on which they are based quite like the e-Legend.

Based on the 504 Coupé of 1969, the e-Legend also features a retro interior that packs plenty of contemporary touches to go along with baby blue velour seats and square, partially wooden steering wheel. This thing is so cool it hurts.

The design may be retro, but the powertrain is all modern. Two electric engines deliver 462 horsepower which helps the e-Legend reach 100 km/h in less than 4,0 seconds. A 100-kWh battery provides 600 kilometers of range.

There’s currently a petition online asking Peugeot to build the e-Legend. Yeah, we’ll sign, sure.
