Paris Motor Show LIVE: Peugeot Quartz Concept image

Originally previewed just a few weeks ago, the brand new Peugeot Quartz Concept has been finally presented to the public at the 2014 Paris Motor Show.

Peugeot’s new and weird creation is named the Quartz and this is a concept car unveiled in Paris. The model has sharp lines, it is lacking the B-pillar, it has scissor doors, LED headlights and taillights, a compact steering wheel allowing you to shift gears and change driving modes, head-up display, bucket seats, pneumatic suspension system which can adjust the ground clearance automatically between 300 mm and 350 mm, a limited slip-dif and others.

As far as the powertrain goes, the French based automaker has fitted the new Quartz Concept with a hybrid, made out of a 1.6 liter THP turbocharged internal combustion gasoline burner, rated at 270 HP (198 kW) and 330 Nm (243 lb-ft) of torque, and an electric motor, with 115 HP (85 kW), fitted to the front axle. There is another electric motor at the rear for battery charging and propulsion. The total output stands at an impressive 500 HP. Peugeot has no plans of putting the Quartz into production anytime soon but the future may be uncertain in this case.
