Peugeot has fully revealed the new Exalt Concept following a leak earlier this week, ahead of its public debut which will take place at the 2014 Beijing Motor Show.
The new Peugeot Exalt Concept has been officially unveiled, standing in at 4.7 meters in length, at 1.31 meters in height and weighing in at 1,700 kg (3,748 lbs). The model has a spacious cabin with wood trimmed steering wheel, leather, a digital instrument cluster, two folding touch screen displays, one for the infotainment functions and the other one for the Pure Blue air purification system and for the climate control, bucket seats made from wool-based fabric and leather, carbon fiber and ebony wood and others.
Peugeot is paying homage to the 20s and 30s French cars with the exposed steel body of the new Exalt Concept and some of its parts have been covered in “Shark Skin”, a textile which is said to reduce fuel consumption and improve the aerodynamic performance. Power is being provided by a 1.6 liter THP four-cylinder turbocharged gasoline burner, borrowed from the RCZ R. The unit is good for 270 HP (201 kW) and 330 Nm (243 lb-ft) of torque and it’s working together with a 50 kW electric motor, mounted on the rear axle. The total output stands at 340 HP (253 kW). The assembly is sending power to the RWD through a 6-speed automatic transmission. More details on the model will be announced in Beijing.
