The upper body of the Peugeot Fractal features a removable roof to turn the coupé into a cabriolet.
The already-low noise levels achieved by the Peugeot Fractal's electric drive system are further improved by the Tall&Narrow tyres, with their narrow tread, meaning it's the perfect car for modern city living.
The four-wheel-drive electric steering ensures outstanding efficiency in the city and stability at high speed. The air springs can function automatically or be controlled by the driver to adjust ground clearance between 7cm and 11cm: the lowest position optimises aerodynamics on the road and extends the Peugeot Fractal's autonomy; the highest clearance allows the car to negotiate city streets with ease and take speed humps and car park entrances in its stride.
The Fractal concept also makes everyday life easier for the vehicle owner through the use of a Samsung Gear S smartwatch, which provides continuous information on the status of the battery, charging time, interior temperature and vehicle location. The watch gives the driver one-touch access to open the doors and customise interior features such as the air conditioning and sound system.
An LED strip above the vent at the rear shows the battery charge status via an equalizer-type display. These LEDs also act as rear lights when the Fractal is moving. The light signature in the front starts below the grille and flows over the headlamps. It also includes scrolling indicators.
The Peugeot Fractal's styling also embodies the car's ease in an urban environment, which is reflected in the dynamic lines that flow along the length of the smooth body. The Coupe Franche, a straight line dual paint finish, further enhances the sense of vitality with a sharp shift from intense white to matt black at the door hinges.
"This is the first time that a concept car design has incorporated sound to such an extent. Peugeot Fractal also innovates by bringing materials first seen on the Onyx to the B segment. 3D printing and the use of generative design ensure the highest standards in efficiency." Matthias Hossann, Head of Concept Cars & Advanced Design at Peugeot
