Is It Just Me Or The Peugeot e-Legend Concept Does Look Like A Mustang?

This is Peugeot e-LEGEND CONCEPT, the French automaker’s vision of the future of driving that’s boring. Peugeot said it has a “realistic and radically modern template.” In other words, it is car with a form that may materialize, eventually, unlike many such “vision” concepts. I am talking about you BMW and Mercedes-Benz. Anyways, regarding the look… while I agree it looks absolutely “realistic,” but I can’t help but to see Ford Mustang in it. Come on. Don’t tell me you did not see the same. That is not say that it isn’t gorgeous. It certainly is. Continue reading Is It Just Me Or The Peugeot e-Legend Concept Does Look Like A Mustang?

Peugeot Worked With Beneteau Boats To Put i-Cockpit Into Boats

You know Peugeot is dead serious about pushing its i-Cockpit to the auto industry when it decided to stick their hands into designing cockpits for sea-faring vessel too. In an announcement made late last year, the French automaker unveiled the Sea Drive Concept in collaboration with French boat maker Beneteau Boats. Designed and built by Peugeot Design Lab, the Sea Drive Concept is a functional demonstrator that leverages on Peugeot i-Cockpit which fuses Beneteau’s Ship Control technology to result what the company said to be “the boating industry’s future steering station” and “the future of powerboating.” Well, what can I said?

Peugeot Unveils A Radically New Sedan And An Adventure-seeking Van-like SUV

I think I may not be able to write much because, I may be too excited. Now, the thing is, I am not usually thrilled by Peugeot automobiles, but here we have are two rides that managed to tickle my fancy somewhat.

Oh man. I don’t even know where to begin. Lets start with the 508, shall we? Continue reading Peugeot Unveils A Radically New Sedan And An Adventure-seeking Van-like SUV

Peugeot Returns To The Pickup Truck Market With New Pickup Truck

Well, what do you know? Peugeot is making a comeback in the pickup market since after pulling the plug more than a decade ago. Not surprisingly, the French automaker is eyeing on the Africa market, a region where it had quite a foothold before winding it all up in 2005, for its return. However, this time round, it will not be getting any Peugeot historical model naming; instead it will be simply called Peugeot Pickup Truck. The truck will be hitting the Africa market in September with an yet to be disclosed sticker and it is also not known if it will be offered beyond Africa.

Peugeot Design Lab is unlike any automobile design house. First of all, it is own and operated by the French automaker and secondly, it does a whole lot more than turning up fancy cars.
