5 BY PEUGEOT Concept Car

Peugeot developed a new concept called the 5 by Peugeot for the large luxury vehicle segment. It features subtle technical detailing to create an overall effect of a timeless, exclusive and modern design. It offers both high levels of driving enjoyment and environmental protection thanks to the Hybrid4 Technology it uses. The engine can develop up to 200 BHP and the CO2 emission level reaches 99 g/km or 0 in the electric mode. The concept reflects the search for more status, quality and performance, combine with a modernity that encompasses the general efficiency of the car when it comes to architecture, styling and engines. It was designed and built to have both elegance and precision, but without in any way sacrificing the personality and dynamism of the Peugeot Marque. The exterior design holds the promise of exceptional interior space, comfort and convenience. The surfaces are perfectly aligned with clearances between each element precisely determined to obtain a quality of assembly rivaling that of a goldsmith. The overall effect creates the impression of a vehicle that has been hewn from solid block of material. The headlamps frame a unique front grille design, whose visual appearance is closely influenced by the Peugeot SR1 concept car. The bold design of the rear lights, clearly distinguish the vehicle at night, consisting of three separate linked light clusters. The exterior styling of the car is elegant and precise and it reflects its technical specifications. The new Peugeot concept features the Hybrid4 technology which will be launched in the Peugeot 3008 in 2011. Under the hood it hides a 2.0-liter HDi FAP163 BHP diesel engine situated at the front of the car, but also an electric motor at the rear that develops another 37 BHP. In the end, we have a 200 BHP output, an electric mode only for low speed operation.
