#UNBORING THE FUTURE
 

Because boredom is not part of our DNA, because independence does not rhyme with monotony, because the energy transition will not erase 120 years of automobile history, PEUGEOT reveals e-LEGEND CONCEPT. This exciting vision of the future of driving pleasure takes the form of a desirable and iconic vehicle. By adopting a realistic and radically modern template, this projection into the future of the automobile magnifies the genes and the elegance of the heritage of the PEUGEOT brand. PEUGEOT e-LEGEND CONCEPT is presented at the 2018 Paris Motor Show.

#UNBORING THE FUTURE
A major player in every technological revolution, PEUGEOT calmly approaches that of the energy transition with the conviction that technology is always at the service of automotive pleasure.

An exciting future is a future that gives you the choice over the silhouette, the type of propulsion or driving. New territories to clear, new challenges to face, the adventure of the PEUGEOT brand continues! With the promise to include the Requirement, the Look and the Emotion in each of our cars always upheld and renewed.

The embodiment of this vision is e-LEGEND CONCEPT! A real object of desire that promotes the freedom of movement and offers the choice between a never-ending choice of pleasures: #UNBORING THE FUTURE.

Finding time
In today’s environment where we are constantly over-stimulated, having time for yourself is probably the most valuable thing. Autonomous driving will help you find that time for yourself and create new experiences to live within your vehicle.

Depending on the type of road traffic or the state of mind of the driver, PEUGEOT e-LEGEND CONCEPT offers four modes of driving.

Two autonomous modes:
• SOFT: favours the comfort of the occupants. Projection on digital material screens and information display reduced to a minimum,
• SHARP: accurate and dynamic vehicle typing. Maximum connection to digital activities possible (social networks, schedule, etc…).
• In autonomous mode, the PEUGEOT e-LEGEND CONCEPT interior configuration adapts:
thanks to the by wire steering technology, the steering wheel retracts under the sound bar in order to fully clear the 49-inch screen,
• the front seats recline,
• the side armrests deploy automatically, freeing up a large storage area and an induction charging area for smartphones,
• the main controls remain accessible via the centre console integrated in the driver’s seat.
• The occupants can then enjoy their favourite hobbies: play the integrated video game or watch a film either in the curved central screen or in each screen built into the sun visors.

Two manual modes:
LEGEND: cruising mode with recall of the three 504 Coupé dials and display of digitally processed wood on the different screens,
BOOST: dynamic and stimulating driving thanks to the powerful electric motor. 180° immersion with projection of the road on a single large screen.

High standards for the materials
With a view to offering an elegant and luminous interior, the choice of the designers focused on warm materials, counterbalancing the cold digital material: a contract to the frenzied race to all-digital.

Velvet is making a comeback! Chosen in the noblest of uses for its silky and pleasant touch, silk velvet is cleverly mixed with a modern technical mesh that offers more freedom in terms of decoration. This weft is woven digitally and especially for PEUGEOT e-LEGEND CONCEPT from a shiny thread reminiscent of the hue of velvet. This material can be found in PEUGEOT 3008 or 5008.

00% electric power chain
Perfectly incorporated into a realistic vision of the brand’s energy transition, PEUGEOT e-LEGEND CONCEPT is powered by a 100% electric power train. With 100 kWh batteries, the engine reaches 800 Nm torque and 340 Kw power distributed to the four-wheel drive. This level of performance makes it possible to travel 0/100 km/h in less than 4s and reach a maximum speed of 220Km/h. The range is 600 km according to the WLTP protocol of which 500 km are accessible in 25 minutes thanks to a fast recharge. PEUGEOT e-LEGEND CONCEPT cultivates the zero technological constraint mindset by offering induction charging.

DAKAR 2018 | A THIRD CONSECUTIVE WIN FOR PEUGEOT

DAKAR 2018 | A THIRD CONSECUTIVE WIN FOR PEUGEOT
 

DAKAR 2018 | A THIRD CONSECUTIVE WIN FOR PEUGEOT

After 8,793 kilometres of dunes, mountain passes, rocky tracks and assorted hazards through Peru, Bolivia and Argentina, the crew of Carlos Sainz/Lucas Cruz have given the PEUGEOT 3008DKR Maxi a magnificent victory on the 40th Dakar Rally. This third consecutive success for Team Peugeot Total on the most demanding rally in the world mirrors the commercial success of the PEUGEOT 3008 SUV, which was voted ‘Car of the Year’ in 2017.

PERFORMANCE AND RELIABILITY
The route of the 40th edition of the Dakar proved to be particularly demanding on the mechanical side. Following this demanding endurance test of nearly 9,000 kilometres, not only did the PEUGEOT 3008DKR Maxi win seven out of 13 stages but it also demonstrated remarkable reliability. The only issues encountered were minor gear selection issues, while the reason for retirement of the n°306 PEUGEOT 3008DKR Maxi was not down to any technical problems. The new BF Goodrich tyres proved to be remarkably strong over the demanding South American terrain, while TOTAL lubricants ensured optimal performance from the engines despite the altitude and extreme conditions.

THE REVENGE OF ‘EL MATADOR’
Carlos Sainz and Lucas Cruz have been unlucky over the last three Dakars but they bounced back in the strongest possible way. Having driven a masterful rally from the start, the two Spaniards demonstrated both performance and consistency at the wheel of the n°303 PEUGEOT 3008DKR Maxi. They won SS6 and SS7 (out of 14) to take a lead on the marathon stage that they were never to lose. The winners of the 2010 Dakar were on the top step of the podium again by reaching Cordoba with a 43min40s advantage over their rivals. This victory underlines their unrelenting investment into PEUGEOT’s rally raid project, having put all their expertise and talent into the set-up of the DKR cars.

THE TRIBULATIONS OF ‘MR DAKAR’
Stéphane Peterhansel and Jean-Paul Cottret, the winners of the 2016 and 2017 Dakars with PEUGEOT, had an action-packed rally with two unfortunate setbacks. On SS7 (of 14) the n°300 crew had to swerve to avoid a quad bike stopped in the middle of the road and destroyed their car’s left-rear suspension against a hidden rock. Then at the start of SS13, the reigning Dakar champions hit a tree, which damaged their power steering. On both occasions, their team mates Cyril Despres/David Castera helped them fix their car and continue. These mishaps meant that they lost first and then second place in the overall classification. Nonetheless they finished fourth after proving to be the fastest crew of the whole Team PEUGEOT Total squad, with three stage victories.

DESPRES/CASTERA, RAPID AND DEPENDABLE
The first Team PEUGEOT Total crew to win a stage on the 2018 Dakar was Cyril Despres and David Castera, who claimed the overall lead at the end of SS2, showing that they have taken another step forward in terms of performance. Unfortunately, the ambitions of the two former bike riders were undone by a rock coming out of the road at kilometre 180 of SS4. This destroyed the right-rear suspension of the car, which stopped the duo in their tracks. With the help of Team PEUGEOT Total’s service truck, also entered in the competition, the n°308 PEUGEOT 3008DKR Maxi crew was able to continue, but with a severe delay. From then on, demonstrating amazing team spirit, the duo dedicated themselves to helping their team mates, while setting some impressive stage times when the opportunity arose (such as on SS8 and SS11). As a result of their 29-hour penalty, Cyril Despres and David Castera were classified some way back, a position which doesn’t represent their true level of performance.

LOEB STOPPED IN HIS TRACKS
After finishing second on last year’s Dakar, just five minutes behind the winners, Sébastien Loeb/Daniel Elena started this year’s event with the clear objective of winning. They made a great start to the rally, despite an itinerary through Peru that mainly consisted of dunes and off-piste driving, which was not really to their advantage. They then won SS4 in style, one of the most difficult stages of the modern Dakar in South America. Unfortunately, while running second in the overall classification, they were forced to retire on SS5, between San Juan de Marcona and Arequipa in Peru. Their PEUGEOT 3008DKR Maxi fell into a soft and sandy hole while they were avoiding another competitor who had got stuck. The impact fractured Daniel Elena’s coccyx, making it impossible for him to continue.

THE LATEST CHAPTER IN THE SUCCESS STORY
This year’s win from Team PEUGEOT Total completes PEUGEOT’s already impressive track record of success on the Dakar, being the manufacturer’s seventh win from eight participations! Here’s a quick reminder of everything PEUGEOT has achieved on the Dakar :

The new Peugeot 3008 has at last been unveiled. This long-awaited vehicle takes the C-SUV segment by storm, in a class of vehicles in full expansion across all regions of the globe. It takes on demanding customers looking for new and different experiences with a very strong hand. Whether by its spectacular latest-generation PEUGEOT i-Cockpit, by its exceptionally inspired design, by its optimised architectural efficiency or by its high-tech equipment, the new PEUGEOT 3008 SUV aims to assert itself from the off as a major player. It inaugurates for PEUGEOT a new SUV range for which it will be the worldwide emblem.

Last Friday saw the official launch of the new Peugeot 3008 at the Peugeot showroom at Kiarong. The attendees were in awe with the video presentation shown before unveiling the car. The Peugeot 3008 will be one of the sought SUVs in Brunei as it has a lot to offer with a very competitive price. You can now drive a Peugeot with advanced specs that all users will appreciate.

Breath-taking interior design

Getting into the new PEUGEOT 3008 SUV is to enter another world, surprising, original and oozing quality. A spectacular, almost futuristic dashboard immediately catches the eye. This coherent and highly technological ensemble is the latest generation PEUGEOT i-Cockpit®, a novel concept that has rewritten the book on the car cockpit. Here, everything seems to be at the service of the pleasure and concentration of the driver in a pronouncedly high-tech niche.

The steering wheel is even more compact and has been redesigned with two flats to make it easier to grip and to afford the driver maximum visibility and legroom.

The large 8” touch-screen resembles a tablet installed in the centre of the dashboard and is equipped with capacitive technology for greater reactivity and practicality. It is accompanied by six elegant piano-key “toggle switches” – giving direct and permanent access to the main control functions: radio, climate control, navigation, vehicle parameters, telephone and mobile applications.

The heads-up instrument unit unveils in series production a high-resolution 12.3” screen with futuristic graphics. It can be completely configured and personalised, and brings together all that the driver could want in his field of view. The visual impact of each setting is highlighted by a series of animations and transitions which are a treat for the eyes.

This on-board experience is equally well served by the richness of the interior, actively contributing to the excellent sense of perceived quality and modernity felt in the cabin. Material choices are inspired and their appearance uncompromising. Some of the areas are less commonly found in cars, such as the dashboard inlay….it’s all very modern and warm.

Whatever angle it is approached from, whoever sees the new SUV PEUGEOT 3008 for the first time is struck by the feeling of top-quality execution and of a high level of perceived quality. This exterior looks makes for the most fashionable SUV on the market.

Getting up close and personal
 

A jubilant driving experience…

The reputation of the Lion brand in terms of driving experience is already well-established, the skill of the in-house development engineers is in repeatedly producing the most satisfying vehicles to drive, whatever their size. In the case of an SUV, the challenge is considerable: raised ride-height, high driving position, raised centre of gravity…In this class of vehicle, styling choices are often made to the detriment of driveability.

The new PEUGEOT 3008 is a true SUV, but above all it’s a PEUGEOT! And like any true SUV it has genuine off-road capability, thanks to the Advanced Grip Control and the Hill Assist Descent Control.

Permanent connectivity

With the Mirror Screen function, a Smartphone screen can be reproduced on the touch-screen to make best use of its applications. It is compatible with MirrorLink protocols (Android smartphones), Android Auto and Apple CarplayTM (iPhone 5 onwards). And with a simple touch of a button on the steering wheel, there is a remote voice recognition function through the smartphone (Android SVoice and Apple Siri). Without taking his eyes off the road, and in complete safety, new possibilities are opened up to the driver: make calls, choose music, read and send text messages, get route information…permanent connectivity in operation!

Supported by an arsenal of driver aids…

It is a joy to drive, a feeling amplified by the compact steering wheel, and the driver can make the most of the dynamic abilities of this SUV, especially thanks to the support of the numerous driver aids available to him. These latest generation ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) minimise any source of danger on the road through an arsenal of safety features:
– Active lane departure warning
– Driver attention warning
– Speed limit sign recognition and recommendation
– Cruise Control with speed limiter
– Visiopark

Made in France

The new PEUGEOT 3008 is produced in the Sochaux plant, and the French Trémery and Douvrin factories supply all the power-plants. It will therefore carry from the outset the “Origine France Garantie” label.

This coherent and highly technological ensemble is the latest generation PEUGEOT i-Cockpit®, a novel concept that has rewritten the book on the car cockpit. Here, everything seems to be at the service of the pleasure and concentration of the driver in a pronouncedly high-tech niche.

The steering wheel is even more compact and has been redesigned with two flats to make it easier to grip and to afford the driver maximum visibility and legroom. The close attention paid to material choices and attention to detail – full hide leather, chrome inserts, gloss black trims – deliver a high level of perceived quality and attractiveness.

The large 8” touch-screen resembles a tablet installed in the centre of the dashboard and is equipped with capacitive technology for greater reactivity and practicality.

It is accompanied by six elegant piano-key “toggle switches” – giving direct and permanent access to the main control functions: radio, climate control, navigation, vehicle parameters, telephone and mobile applications.

The heads-up instrument unit unveils in series production a high-resolution 12.3” screen with futuristic graphics. It can be completely configured and personalised, and brings together all that the driver could want in his field of view. Five different display modes – controlled from a knob on the steering wheel – allow the driver to configure the instrument unit “a la carte”. The « Personal » mode in particular, configured from the touch-screen, allows the driver to display a wide choice of information: driver aids, engine parameters and trip computer. The visual impact of each setting is highlighted by a series of animations and transitions which are a treat for the eyes..

Inspired exterior design

The interior design of the all-new PEUGEOT 3008 is unique to the market. The design is successful and rich, and the on-board technology promises much.

This feeling is carried over to the outside. At first glance, the all-new PEUGEOT 3008 is striking and surprises by the strength of its character. The effect is strong, clear and self-evident: this is an SUV. The all-new PEUGEOT 3008 has adopted all the characteristics of this type of silhouette:
– A vertical front end,
– A long flat bonnet,
– Wide protective bands (bumper skirts, wheel arches, bottom of doors),
– Large wheels,
– Raised ground clearance,
– Shaped roof bars,

But the all-new PEUGEOT 3008 SUV doesn’t just settle for incorporating these characteristics. It adds meaning and emotion whilst keeping in mind consistency. Because what you notice first about the vehicle is a sense of harmony, of well-balanced proportions, of just the right quantity of everything. A shape inspired by the boundless creativity of its designers.

A jubilant driving experience

The all-new PEUGEOT 3008 is a true SUV, but above all it’s a PEUGEOT! And like any true SUV it has genuine off-road capability, especially thanks to Advanced Grip Control.

The driver and passengers just have to sit back and enjoy the ride! Journeys on board, even the shortest and most day-to-day trips, are enriched with new discoveries. This new PEUGEOT is a true invitation to travel, first-class, aided by excellent sound-insulation and numerous comfort features, most of which are above .

 

 

 

 

Peace of mind driving aids

It is a joy to drive, a feeling amplified by the compact steering wheel, and the driver can make the most of the dynamic abilities of this SUV, especially thanks to the support of the numerous driver aids available to him. These latest generation ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) minimise any source of danger on the road through an arsenal of safety features:
– Active lane departure warning;
– Driver attention warning
– Speed limit sign recognition
– Adaptive Cruise Control
For city driving, the driver is also assisted by a Visio Park (360° all-around vision)

Keeps you connected

The all-new PEUGEOT 3008 is like its driver – it moves with the times. So it meets the need to stay connected at the wheel and to be able to navigate calmly and peacefully, thanks to features like Mirror Screen and Android Auto.

Made in France

The new PEUGEOT 3008 is produced in the Sochaux plant, and the French Trémery and Douvrin factories supply all the power-plants. It will therefore carry from the outset the “Origine France Garantie” label..

Checking out the VR on Peugeot 3008. Apparently there will be giveaways for those who try on the VR on Peugeot during the 2017 Brunei Motor Show at Bridex
 

Rano’s take:

Can you imagine this? An affordable SUV that have high end driving experience. Basically you don’t have to own a luxury car to enjoy this and you can settle for the new Peugeot 3008. I saw the video presentation and why it won many accolades as being Car of the Year 2017. This means that many thought process has been given to this model and it even surpass many branded cars.

Now I’m just waiting for a test drive of the Peugeot to get the overall feel of the car. The Peugeot 3008 will be showcased hopefully at 2017 Brunei Motor Show at Bridex this weekend. So do check it out. The  Peugeot 3008 will be launched sometime in November 2017.
