(from Peugeot Press
Release) A NEW LUXURY SALOON DRIVING EXPERIENCE
As part of its new Marque project, Peugeot is launching a double
product offensive: the development of new markets and the
strengthening of its presence in its historic market segments. The 5
By Peugeot concept demonstrates the Marque’s ambitions in the large
luxury vehicle segment.
Its pure and elegant
lines blend with subtle technological details to create an overall
timeless, exclusive and modern design. Its exterior design
conceals Peugeot’s HYbrid4 technology, integrating driving pleasure
with new environmental challenges: 147 kW (200 bhp), four-wheel
drive and an emissions level of 99 g/km of CO2 (or 0 in electric
THE EXPRESSION OF STRONG DESIGN
With its dimensions,
proportions and styling, the 5 By Peugeot concept is a response by
to radical changes in the market for large, luxury saloons. This
development reflects the continual
search for more status, quality and performance, but also modernity…
a modernity that encompasses the vehicle’s general efficiency in
terms of architecture, engines and styling.
All over the world, this
desire is shared by customers in the “large saloon” (M2) and
“luxury” (H) segments, where these traditional values can be found.
5 By Peugeot expresses the Marque’s vision and know-how of the large
touring car market. This concept car is designed and built to
suggest elegance and precision, without in any way sacrificing the
personality and dynamism so beloved of the Marque.
The emotion aroused by
its exterior design holds the promise of exceptional interior space,
convenience and comfort.
A MODERN, PRESTIGIOUS AND TIMELESS
The design of the 5 By
Peugeot concept has been guided by the ongoing research into
perfectly balanced and streamlined body shapes. The contours
of its three-compartment body flow
smoothly, unruffled and without interruption or embellishment from
the end of the bonnet to the top of
the boot: all surfaces are flush-fitting, with clearances between
each element precisely determined to obtain an assembly quality
rivalling that of a goldsmith. The overall effect is that of a
vehicle “hewn from a solid block of material”.
At the front, the finish
of the feline expression is spectacular: “LED tubes” are highlighted
luminescent surround that blends with the body. The headlamps
frame a unique front grille, characteristic of the Marque’s
signature, whose aesthetic codes are reinterpreted following the
example of the Peugeot SR1 concept car. Indeed this grille appears
to be detached from the vehicle, as if suspended. The new Lion
naturally takes its place in a sculptured section at the end of the
long aluminium bonnet.
The streamlined sides of
the concept car are enhanced by bevelled, brushed-aluminium window
surrounds, door handles in the same material, and sculpted 19” wheel
The rear design suggests
robustness and power. The particularly expressive lights are
composed of three raised red clusters, also clearly distinguishing
the vehicle at night; they are a reference to certain of the
Marque’s historic models.
THE PROMISE OF NEW MOTORING:
ENJOYMENT BEHIND THE WHEEL
The elegance, precision
and contained dynamism suggested by the car’s exterior styling is
reflected in the car’s technical specification. The 5 By Peugeot
concept incorporates HYbrid4 technology which will be launched as
standard on the 3008 from 2011.
A 2.0 l HDi FAP 120 kW (163 bhp) diesel engine, mounted at the front
of the vehicle, is combined with
a 27 kW (37 bhp) electric motor at the rear. This provides the
concept car with an overall maximum power of 147 kW (200 bhp). It
also benefits from an electric only mode at low speeds, four-wheel
drive on demand, and low levels of fuel consumption and emissions
(3.8 litres/100 km or 99 g/km of CO2, or
0 in ZEV mode).
5 By Peugeot confirms
once again Peugeot’s environmental strategy. This modular technology
be combined with other naturally-aspirated engines according to
market requirements, and will be available on different body shapes
and different platforms, helping to ensure future motoring
