Peugeot has officially pulled the wraps off the new Quartz Concept, ahead of its public debut which will take place next month, during the 2014 Paris Motor Show.

The brand new Peugeot Quartz Concept is coming with sharp lines and it has 4.5 meters in length and 2.06 meters in width, riding on some large 23-inch alloy wheels. The car company hasn’t fitted the model with a B-pillar and scissor doors have been applied. Peugeot says that the headlights and the taillights are now benefitting from LED technology.

The cabin is getting a compact steering wheel from which you can shift gears and change the driving modes. The model is also getting a configurable head-up display, four bucket seats with four-point retractable harness and some other tweaks. The one-off vehicle has also received pneumatic suspension which can adjust automatically offering a ground clearance between 300 mm and 350 mm, a limited slip differential and so on.

Power to the Peugeot Quartz Concept is being provided by a HYbrid drivetrain, made out of an electric motor, powering the front axle with 115 HP (85 kW), and a 1.6 liter THP turbocharged gasoline burner, generating 270 HP (198 kW) and 330 Nm (243 lb-ft) of torque. There is also another electric motor at the rear for propulsion and battery charging. The total output of the assembly stands at 500 HP. The Quartz Concept will be officially unveiled on the 4th of October.
