Peugeot EXALT Concept Car bodywork features shades of grey that emanate from the bare steel covering the majority of the exterior to the distinctive ‘Shark Skin’ rear end. Inside, the ‘Newspaper Wood’ finish borrows (literally) from the pages of major business dailies. It is powered by hybrid petrol-electric power train has a combined output of 340hp.
The tailgate features an ingenious opening mechanism and provides easy access to the HYbrid-kick, an innovative electric scooter, stowed below the boot floor.
Maxime Picat, Peugeot Brand Chief Executive Officer, said:
“Peugeot’s 125-year automobile history is punctuated by models that made a mark on their era. With the EXALT Concept, the Brand has reasserted its position and opened a new chapter. We are moving forward, resolutely, with confidence.”
With its sleek, athletic lines, EXALT embodies all the power of Peugeotdesign. Sitting on wide tracks with powerfully rounded wheel arches, the five-door saloon expresses its style over a length of 4.70m, combining flat surfaces and straight-cut lines to strike the perfect balance between aggressiveness and softness. All materials have been carefully selected with an eye to efficiency.
Pierre Paul Mattei, Peugeot EXALT Styling Manager, said:
“The PEUGEOT EXALT is athletic, powerful and sleek, sporting an array of original materials. Its cabin, trimmed in natural materials, is dedicated to comfort and instinctive driving. This innovative concept makes the saloon even more attractive and more versatile, in particular the tailgate, with its unique opening mechanism and large boot.”
