Peugeot Plans to Launch Futuristic Saloon at the Beijing Auto Show This Year
|   Sunday, February 02, 2014
Peugeot has been working on a four seated saloon concept for quite some time now and we have come to know of a possible reveal at Beijing this year. Although officials are tightlipped about external designs, we believe it to be based on their Onyx Concept. Peugeot has unveiled a sole image under wraps, although the design of a sleek four door sedan is efficiently visible underneath.

Measuring 4.73 x 1.31 meters (length x height), this vehicle is designed using similar materials as the Onyx.
Hence, we could be looking at a production variant, even though Peugeot begs to differ. This car has room for four people and their luggage, which carbon fiber, hand crafted steel and aluminum is used in plenty. Its windows and wind shield is made up on a light weight acrylic based fiber, alternating glass, which is safer, clearer as well as provides better safety.

Engine displacement is yet to be formally announced, even though experts believe a 3.7 liter V8 HDI FAP petrol electric hybrid engine has been used, displacing 600 BHP. A six speed sequential transmission is in place, which engineers believe, will change the future for Peugeot. The French car maker is making an effort to succeed in Chinese markets, while major investments are being made to enhance infrastructure and production capacity.

Peugeot is in talks with Chinese manufacturer Dongfeng, in order to stabilize sales in China, although not much has come out of it since. General Motors sold a chunk of its shares for $250 Million, in order to finance its DongFeng deal. Hence, we expect serious talks and confirmed results from this deal. China has seen some heavy investments from Peugeot and we are looking forward to quite a few more deals soon.

We expect this vehicle to be designed exclusively for European and Chinese markets, which account for a major part of their global sales. Peugeot has not had a successful stint in American markets so far. Hence, products focused on this part of the world, is unexpected at this moment. No matter what the final design is, insiders have hinted at futuristic design concepts, although we are yet to understand what that means.

A list of gadgets and interior trim levels will be unveiled soon. Hence, stay connected as we bring you latest news about this vehicle and Peugeot's future plans. It is hard to decipher this vehicle's design language as it is currently under wraps, although we currently presume it is based on the Onyx Concept, with minor modifications having been made to give it a more practical appeal.

We have been waiting for Peugeot to come up with futuristic designs as it currently focuses just on practicality and fuel efficiency. A design such as this was long awaited. Engineers and designers were equally enthralled with this design as it is a one of a kind production vehicle from their stables. What do you think of this car in general? Do let us know about your take on this car.
