Peugeot Fractal Concept Unveiled
After releasing a teaser video of the new Peugeot Fractal Concept, Peugeot finally unveiled detail official images of Peugeot Fractal Concept ahead of 2015 IAA Frankfurt Motor Show. The new Peugeot Fractal Concept is a 2+2 layout coupe-hatch concept with retractable roof and sportier exterior design. The power train details of this dynamic looking sporty hatch are still not unveiled, but the report says it might be fully electric equipped with two electric motors each delivering 168hp resulting in a total of 335hp. Peugeot says Fractal has a range up to 280 miles (450 KM) which is higher than Nissan Leaf and Renault Zoe.
The total curb weight of the car is around 1000 kg and can accelerate 0-62 MPH in 6.8 seconds, which is slow considering its impressive power to weight ratio. We have to wait until 2015 IAA Frankfurt Motor Show which is scheduled to start on 17th Sept in Frankfurt to get full details about this concept.
From released images, we can conclude that the exterior design carries cues from Peugeot’s digital racer for Gran Turismo 6 video game. The front shows familiar trademark large black front grille with aggressively designed slim LED headlights. Viewing from side, you can see mixing hard lines and edges with curvy body surfaces, small wheelbase and steeply raked rear window. The important feature of this car is the removable hard-top to make it convertible.
The interior is bold and attractive featuring 7.7 inch LED display on central console, digital instrumental cluster and a rectangular steering wheel with touch displays. Most of the parts of interior are manufactured using 3D printing technology.
No doubt that this concept will transfer to the Peugeot’s next production car and will be released as all new 3008 in early 2016. Stay tuned to IndyaCars to get more updates about this new concept and to know more about upcoming 2015 IAA Frankfurt Motor Show.
