    Peugeot 508

    Quite a nice looking car, conservative in styling yes but it has certain slickness to it. Saturday papers said pre-order price at $125,900 not bad for a big car like this. Any current Peugeot owners could share your experience on owning a Peugeot? Is the AD workshop competent? A few pics to share.
  7. For all those who are ready to give a new lease of life to the automotive world, Peugeot is unveiling the new 2008 SUV. As an enthusiastic and fierce supporter of Peugeot's brand vision of an exciting future, it is the ultra modern interpretation of an instinctive and versatile driving experience. A genuine SUV in its dimensions, it clashes with a particularly powerful and distinctive style. Ultra-technological, it adopts the new generation of immersive Peugeot i-Cockpit® 3D, with equipment and driving aids designed by the best know-how Peugeot has to offer. Being multi-energy, it offers the freedom to choose between 3 types of efficient engines: electric, petrol and diesel all offering phenomenally stimulating sensations. The world is changing. New challenges call for new answers throughout the automotive industry. With its 208 years of history, the Peugeot brand is calmly pursuing its commitment in the era of the energy transition. Our exciting and reassuring vision of the future is confirmed once again by the new SUV Peugeot 2008. It shows that technology and pleasure are not incompatible and that a car has the power to amaze. It turns a trip into a journey and offers everyone the mobility they need. The new Peugeot 2008 emerges at the heart of the compact SUV segment, contributing to what is the success of the Peugeot range today: affirmation through design and differentiation through innovation and technology. EXALTING SUV Powerful and distinctive in style, the new 2008 Peugeot SUV is a sculptural and desirable object. It fulfils the ambition to turn over a new and remarkable page in the history of Peugeot SUVs and is fully in line with the current style of the range while displaying its own personality. The balanced lines and overall proportions are those of an SUV, with a recessed windshield that makes the bonnet more horizontal, creating a strong body. The car sits well on its wheels, perfectly shouldered, strong and reassuring. Statutory and with identity, the front incorporates a proud and straight grille (body colour on electric versions), a carved bonnet and LED daytime running lights that fade under the projector in order to resurface below. The faceted and bold profile immediately catches the eye, with different triangular lines. The result is a lively and incisive style, representing a real technical feat for parts pressing: never have flanks had as much volume! These lines end on the tailgate, for an undeniable coherence and overall homogeneity. The style is robust, and even more with the large wheels (690mm), which perfectly fill the arches. The 18" rims have added inserts with three advantages: easier customization, significant weight gain (4 kg across all wheels) and better aerodynamics. A clear upgrade in quality and elegance with the two-tone Black Diamond black headlining, black window strip and the silk-screened C-pillar on the GT Line and GT versions. Muscular with a high beltline, the rear end includes lights connected by a black strip with dual exhaust pipes on the PureTech 130 & 155. As expressive as always, the signature with 3 LED claws is once again a feature here. Be it day and night, you'll find it on the back on all versions and in the projectors of high-end versions. Depending on the destination, the headlights will use LED technology on all finishes. In addition to the usual offer, striking and distinctive exterior shades are available and add even more tone to the style: - Elixir Red, with a coloured varnish to enhance the depth and colour of the shade, - Vertigo Blue, three-layers for a super bright finish, - Fusion Orange, a new metallic colour exclusive for the new SUV Peugeot 2008. Down with monotony! Inside, the colours and materials are meticulously detailed, skilfully combining noble materials and original colours. - subtle, the doors panels decoration includes Orange (on Active) or Blue (on Allure) tampo-printing, - technical sophistication and freshness in the Allure version, with modern "Urbanoïd" light blue upholstery, - dynamic, the GT Line versions offer a chic atmosphere, enhanced by isolated Adamite, - noble and sought after, the GT/e-2008 GT versions combine Alcantara®, leather and technical mesh. Black onyx stitched Adamite on the GT versions, the Alcantara® has an exclusive Greval® grey stitched blue and green on the Peugeot e-2008 GT versions. This cosy interior is embellished on the GT Line and GT versions with bright decorations on the dashboard and the doors panels that have 8 colours that can be picked via the touch screen. EXTENDED EXPERIENCE The spaciousness of the rear seats (a new record for the new CMP platform) makes the new SUV Peugeot 2008 a particularly versatile SUV. Its length of 4.30m and its wheelbase of 2.60m also give it a comfortable boot volume until 434 L (VDA V210). The modularity is ensured by a two-position floor (depending on versions) which provides a virtually flat floor once the bench is folded. With a variety of new storage on board, you will be able to keep everything you need on a daily basis with you. In addition to the traditional door pockets and the glove box, there is ample storage space under the front centre armrest and more in front of the gear stick. Additionally, there is more discreet storage at the bottom of the central console. There you'll find the very convenient induction charging area and its lid, which in an open position can cleverly hold a smartphone. Passengers will also enjoy a passenger compartment full of sunlight thanks to the optional sunroof, offering a wide clear bay. Its opening to the outside preserves the spaciousness for people in the back. Even more technological: the new Peugeot i-Cockpit® 3D The Peugeot i-Cockpit® is still based on the same fundamentals and offers flawless ergonomics for awakening the senses: - a compact steering wheel, for better handling and better grip, - a large HD touch screen at your fingertips, - and now an innovative 3D heads-up receiver, A favourite of our customers and currently present in 5 million Peugeot vehicles around the world, it's a wholly new interpretation which currently equips the new SUV Peugeot 2008. Information is placed in the driver's line of sight. Depending on the version, the Peugeot i-Cockpit® 3D instrument cluster projects it like a hologram. The indications are dynamic and animated: they get closer to the eye depending on their degree of importance or urgency, thereby increasing reactivity by around half a second. Unveiled on the new Peugeot 208, the Peugeot i-Cockpit® 3D is a real innovation, a world first in the segment. It improves driving in every way: efficiency, readability, and safety are at an all-time high. The touch screen can be 10 inches diagonally depending on the version, and it is controlled via touch shortcuts placed next to Toggle Switches or with the new voice command. Accuracy and credibility abound since, in addition to sight, touch is also required when using foamed plastics on the dashboard as well as sophisticated and pleasant materials in many places, such as Alcantara® or Nappa® leather. The door panels and dashboard inserts have a "carbon" look, while the EAT8 gearbox control is 100% electric ("shift and park by wire"), allowing easy and intuitive operation. It is complemented by paddles on the wheel for the driver to take over quickly if needed. Modern, connected and technological Unprecedented and even scarce in this segment, the equipment and driving aids are taken from the upper segments and are at the highest level of Peugeot brand know-how. It's an impressive technological arsenal, including: - Drive Assist plus, which paves the way to semi-autonomous driving. It combines: * the lane departure avoidance system, linked to the Lane Positioning making it possible to choose your position in the lane, *the adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go function in EAT8 automatic gearbox, - Park Assist that automatically manages the steering when entering and leaving a parking spot, with only 60 cm difference between cars when parked, - the latest-generation automatic emergency braking, which also detects pedestrians and cyclists, day and night, from 5km/h to 140 km/h), - active warning of involuntary lane crossing (or the roadside), - driver warning alert, recommending a break if necessary, - automatic switching of high beam, to focus even more on the road, - further recognition of signs (one-way, stop) with recommendation for speed signs, - active blind spot monitoring, - the electric parking brake. As the co-pilots of everyday life, smartphones will also be in the new 2008. Its information will be integrated into the central screen thanks to MirrorScreen compatibility including MirrorLink™ connection protocols, Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. In addition to the induction charging zone, up to 4 USB sockets are available depending on the version (2 in the front including one USB-C and 2 on the back). The routes will be optimized with TomTom® Traffic connected 3D navigation, which gives real-time traffic status and recalculates routes automatically. The driver will also be informed about risk areas, surrounding points of interest. The most demanding music lovers will be pleased ; the music lovers will be delighted. Developed in partnership with the French high-end specialist in high-fidelity sound FOCAL®, the premium Hi-Fi system of the new SUV Peugeot 2008 is the result of more than 3 years of work. Already present in the Hi-Fi versions of the Peugeot 3008, 5008 and 508, this premium equipment is now available on the new SUV Peugeot 2008. In addition to an optimal acoustic layout, the 10 loudspeakers use technologies patented FOCAL® usually reserved living room installations: 4 aluminum inverted dome tweeters, four 165mm Polyglass woofers, 1 Polyglass central speaker and a Power Flower™ triple coil subwoofer. They are paired with a 12-channel 515 W amplifier, providing a detailed, rich and dynamic music scene. EXCITING CHOICE Based on the new and efficient modular platform of latest generation CMP (Common Modular Platform), the new SUV Peugeot 2008 is a multi-energy vehicle. It offers the freedom to choose the type of motorization according to your needs and own uses: 100% electric, petrol or diesel. For a la carte driving, it has a driving modes selector depending on the version: "Eco", "Normal" and "Sport". To escape even further, the optional Grip Control will be connected with the hill assist descent control (HADC) to perfectly and safely control your vehicle and its trajectory in steep slopes. Efficiency was the cornerstone of the development, all engines receive controlled air intakes, directed air flow wheels or even a streamlined underbody, all for a controlled air flow, and therefore an optimised air penetration coefficient. The range is available in 4 levels of finish: Active, Allure, GT Line and GT, all available in 100% electric or thermical. The high-end GT Line and GT versions have distinctive stylistic attributes: - full LED projectors with 3-claw light signature, - diamond 18" aluminium wheels with inserts, - meticulously-detailed interior: black trim, Adamite colour stitching, mood lighting, dynamic seats, aluminium pedals. Efficient and responsible: the combustion engines meet the latest Euro 6 standards In line with the latest Euro 6 standards, the internal combustion engines feature the latest technological advances of the Peugeot brand and are all equipped with Stop & Start and a particle filter. For even more ease and driving comfort, some of these engines can be linked with the latest 8-speed automatic gearbox (EAT8). The petrol engines are structured around the 3 cylinder-engine, a 1.2L engine size and adherence to the Euro 6d standard: - PureTech 100 S&S BVM6, - PureTech 130 S&S BVM6 or EAT8, - PureTech 155 S&S EAT8 (only for GT). For Diesel, the offer is with the 4-cylinder engine with a 1.5L engine size (Euro 6d-temp standards at launch): - BlueHDi 100 S&S BVM6, - BlueHDi 130 S&S EAT8. Exciting Full Electric driving pleasure Because electric can be magical too, this first 100% electric SUV Peugeot makes it possible to reach a new world of sensations. The driver will enjoy a high level of panache, in total operating silence and no vibrations. This pleasure is accompanied by the freedom to travel in the city centre even in the Green Zones with restricted traffic. The engine with a power of 100 kW (136 hp) and a torque of 260 Nm available immediately ensure a daily ease in all situations. The 50kWh high capacity battery provides a range of up to 310 km according to the new WLTP standard. This battery is guaranteed for 8 years or 160,000 km for 70% of its charging capacity. The display of energy flows in the central display as well as in the Peugeot i-Cockpit® 3D receiver is ludic and make it easy and intuitive to understand how the traction chain works. Two intuitive modes of energy recovery when braking are available and accessible directly from the gear stick: - Drive ("D"), recovery is standard, for driving similar to a petrol or diesel vehicle - Brake ("B"), recovery allows deceleration directly from the accelerator pedal The batteries are optimally installed in the floor, ensuring that choosing an electric version won't affect the performance of the new SUV Peugeot 2008. This ensures the same room and boot volume as the internal combustion versions. An essential marker of the Peugeot brand, the dynamic behaviour of the new SUV Peugeot e-2008 has been the subject of careful attention and provides a touch of road and driving pleasure comparable to petrol and diesel versions. The drive axles have been adapted and the weight distribution is optimal. The charging time depends on the power available: -16h for full charge from a Legrand® Green Up™ plug, - between 5h15 and 8h for a complete charge with a WallBox (three phase 11 kW with optional charger or single phase 7.4 kW) - 30mn to recover 80% of battery with the 100 kW public terminals, the thermal regulation of the battery makes it possible to use terminals with this power. The programmable delayed charge is available from the navigation screen or from your smartphone with the MyPeugeot® application. This can also start charging at any time and allows you to check the charge level remotely. For the highest level of thermal comfort, specific equipment has been developed: - a 5 kW heating resistor and a 3kW climate compressor which are supplied by the traction battery, to provide heating and cooling in the passenger compartment, - a heat pump and automatic regulation of the passenger compartment temperature to guarantee a level of comfort equivalent to the internal combustion versions. The system is suitable for optimized energy consumption, - pleasant heated seats (depending on the version), - thermal pre-conditioning programmable from the touchscreen or remotely via the MyPeugeot® smartphone app. Offering an ideal temperature in the cockpit as of the rise on board, this comfort is not done to the detriment of autonomy: when the vehicle is connected, energy necessary comes directly from the terminal of refill. The new SUV Peugeot e-2008 does not have a specific silhouette but some captivating details that subtly underline its electrified personality: - a sparkling dichroic Lion, with reflections alternating between green and blue depending on the angle of view, - a specific "e" monogram on the front fenders and the tailgate, - an elegant, body-coloured front grille with beads, - exclusive seat upholstery in Alcantara© "Greval Grey" on e-2008 GT, - finally, the on-board experience is complemented by a display specific to the electric version in the 3D receiver as well as in the touch screen. And because electric isn't only about motorization, the Peugeot brand is offering a full practical and didactic ecosystem to calmly support customers in their daily travel and use. Three services will be on offer from launch: - Easy-Charge will facilitate access to different charging solutions tailored to the needs of users. At home or at the office, a panel of charging solutions (reinforced plugs, Wallbox, Smart-Wallbox,...) will be proposed. Peugeot will also accompany its customers in the installation thanks to a partnership with specialized companies. In parallel, an offer of public charging solutions is available via Free2Move Services. A step of load gives access to the broadest network of load with more than 110,000 terminals in Europe via the PlugSurfing partner. The preselection of the terminals is done according to the distance, the speed or the price of the refill. Guidance towards the selected terminal can be carried out starting from the application Free2Move Services or the connected navigation of the vehicle. - Easy-Move will ensure our customers' mobility. A tool for planning and organizing long trips via Free2Move Services will offer the best journeys taking into account the autonomy and the location of the charging terminals on the way. For clear and serene driving, the route will be displayed directly on the touch screen of the vehicle. An extended mobility offer is included in the vehicle rent and allows you to rent an internal combustion vehicle according to your needs. Finally, a tool in the MyPeugeot application provides eco-driving tips to optimize the autonomy of your new SUV Peugeot e-2008, - Serenity to support our customers throughout their journey with the new SUV Peugeot e-2008. New simulators and digital routes will help you to find out more about electric on the Peugeot brand websites, service contracts and dedicated roadside assistance may include financing. A certificate guaranteeing the level of capacity of the vehicle's battery will facilitate resale.
  8. Behold the new Golf competitor from France. Peugeot probably won’t be too happy with what you are about to see, but we are extremely happy to share a batch of very revealing spy shots with the next-generation 308. What you can see in the gallery below is probably the final design of the French compact hatchback, which plays in the same segment as the VW Golf in Europe. The previous spy photos of the car showed prototypes wearing a lot of camouflage. However, these new shots give us a crystal clear look at the front end and it’s looking absolutely stunning. The front fascia has been completely redesigned compared to the outgoing model and it’s obviously taking inspiration from the new 508 and 208. The huge radiator grille is home to the brand’s new logo and it seems that in this case it also plays the role of a radar for some of the car’s safety systems. Above the logo, there’s a “308” badge, while the grille is flanked by sharp headlights with LED daytime running lights extending into the bumper. The little chrome caps between the grille and the lights could be for the washer nozzles. The lower section of the bumper features a very sculptured design with a trapezoidal shape of the lower grille. There are two little bumper extensions at each corner, though we get the feeling that something might be missing to connect the little fins - a lip spoiler or a diffuser of some sort.

  10. 4th largest automotive group in the making... Fiat Chrysler and Peugeot reach deal to merge DETROIT – From Daimler-Chrysler to Fiat Chrysler, the former American automaker Chrysler Corp. has gallivanted around the world to find partners to assist in its growth or help keep it afloat. It now has its sights set on Peugeot maker PSA Group. Both the French carmaker and Fiat Chrysler on Wednesday confirmed they are in talks to create the world’s fourth-largest automaker with a roughly $50 billion valuation. The PSA board approved the merger and the Fiat Chrysler board is set to meet Wednesday, a person familiar with the deal told CNBC. Executives have briefed regulators in the U.S. and France, the Wall Street Journal reported, citing unnamed sources. Peugeot CEO Carlos Tavares is expected to lead the combined automaker as its CEO, while John Elkann, Fiat Chrysler chairman and heir of the Agnelli family dynasty that founded Fiat, would continue his role with the combined company, the WSJ reported. The deal gives Peugeot six board seats and Fiat Chrysler five, according to the WSJ. “We will not comment beyond the press release issued this morning,” PSA Spokesman Pierre-Olivier Salmon said in an email, citing a press release issued earlier in the day that confirmed the two companies were holding “ongoing discussions aiming at creating one of the world’s leading automotive groups.” Fiat Chrysler spokesman Niel Golightly said he had “nothing to add at this time.” Reports of the talks, including a potential “all-share merger of equals,” as the Wall Street Journal first reported, sent shares of Fiat Chrysler surging as much as 8% on Tuesday. The stock rose by less than 2% in midday trading Wednesday. The confirmation of the talks comes about five months after Fiat Chrysler ended merger discussions with PSA’s French rival, Renault. Fiat Chrysler, the world’s seventh-largest automaker, has been on a quest for a tie-up to grow scale and consolidate costs for several years. ‘Litany of obstacles’ Even if the deal wins approval from both boards, it faces a lot of obstacles. Challenges include consolidation, clashing corporate cultures and government and regulatory approval, among other issues. Talks of a potential tie-up between Fiat Chrysler and Renault ended earlier this year largely due to the French government, which owns a roughly 12.2% stake in Renault. The French government currently owns a 13.7% stake in PSA. Bank of America Merrill Lynch analyst John Murphy cited the French government’s ownership as one of a “litany of obstacles” facing such a deal. Murphy said similar to Fiat Chrysler’s potential tie-up with Renault, the “industrial logic” is “unclear unless there is massive headcount reduction.” Such a deal, according to Murphy, also could alienate U.S. buyers, lowering the potential benefit of the two automakers combining. Even if the merger is approved by shareholders and regulators, “there is a material risk American consumers may shift to Ford and GM products due to FCA possibly no longer being perceived as an ‘American’ identity, not to mention the potential political implications of this potential deal.” Bernstein analyst Max Warburton said a merger between Fiat Chrysler and Peugeot “has more logic” than one with Renault. He specifically cites the potential for Tavares to create “long-term value.” “We ultimately think a deal could be made to work — this would be as much about raising performance as it would be about synergies,” he wrote in a Tuesday note to investors. However, Warburton noted a deal between the two does little to increase business in China, the world’s largest auto market, and the timing is “sub-optimal” given FCA’s earnings are at all-time high. Rewards Analysts see the merger as a quick way for Peugeot to re-enter the U.S. market after a decades-long hiatus, while continuing to grow its European operations following the company’s acquisition of GM’s European business in 2017. “This news is not unexpected, given that both companies have been actively exploring tie-ups with others to yield cost savings and other synergistic benefits,” said David Leggett, automotive editor at data analytics firm GlobalData. For Fiat Chrysler, it would finally cement former CEO Sergio Marchionne’s vision of creating a global automaker with the resources to successfully compete in the ever-changing auto industry. In 2015, Marchionne, who unexpectedly died in July 2018, called for industry consolidation in a presentation called “Confessions of a Capital Junkie.” Consolidation would save capital that was being wasted by automakers developing redundant technologies, he said. “These were not hallucinations of somebody looking to grandstand in the industry,” Marchionne said at the time. “We have spent a lot of time trying to understand what makes this machine tick. And the machine can tick a lot better if certain things happened.” Marchionne believed only a handful of the world’s largest automakers would survive and have the capital to compete as automakers push for autonomous and all-electric vehicles. The deal with PSA would give Fiat Chrysler access to PSA’s newer vehicle platforms in Europe as well as emerging technologies. Marchionne’s methodical combination of Fiat and Chrysler a decade ago is considered one of the more successful tie-ups for the auto industry in the recent years. Chrysler’s previous “merger of equals” with German automaker Daimler-Benz in 1998 was a culture clash and failure that led to a divorce less than a decade later, followed by Chrysler spiraling into bankruptcy in 2009.
  11. We are back with another SUV and this time, its from Peugeot! Join us as Jon walks us through the various design features of the car. And this Peugeot has one helluva generous boot, at 520 litres! Check it out... But the French car's quirky design goes further then just the exterior. Check out what the cabin looks like! So should you opt for this over the gambit of Japanese and Korean rivals? Watch the video the see Jon's take on the Peugeot 3008!
  12. Shares in both Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and Peugeot have risen as there are talks of a possible merger between the two companies. In an article published by Reuters, the president of Peugeot family holding company FFP, Robert Peugeot, told French newspaper Les Echos that he would support a potential deal with Fiat Chrysler Automobile (FCA). “With them, as with others, the planets could be aligned,” Peugeot said. FCA did not comment on the article but its rose by 5.2%. Not surprisingly, Peugeot's stock prices also rose by 2.7%. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles have always wanted a merger as the late Sergio Marchionne actively pursued merging FCA with another company. He believed that as production cost and the pace in technology increase, it was only right that companies work together. Meanwhile, the head of PSA Group Carlos Tavares have also voiced out recently that they do not mind mergers and have viewed the likes of Fiat, General Motors, and Jaguar Land Rover as ideal partners.
  13. Any bros driving this model. Looking for some reviews. Thanks
  14. Peugeot’s route to the future takes a 50-year detour into the past Published: 20 September 2018 Here’s a thought. An autonomous electric car that doesn’t look like a shuttle bus, but instead looks like a really neat coupe – a car you’d be delighted to see parked outside your house, and which would actually fit into your garage. Peugeot has tapped into its stylish coupe heritage for an all-electric concept that showcases a refreshingly retro vision of future transport. The e-Legend Concept, which gets its public unveiling at the Paris motor show, draws heavily on the 504 Coupe of 50 years ago, but also incorporates elements of US muscle cars. Paris motor show: the CAR magazine preview guide What’s the idea behind the Peugeot e-Legend Concept? Its overall dimensions are close to the new 508’s – the concept is slightly lower and shorter – and the wheels are a plausible 19in in diameter. It’s a two-door four-seater with frameless windows and a glasshouse that closely resembles the 504’s. Peugeot e-Legend Concept and the Peugeot 504 The elegantly concave sides of the car connect muscular wheel arches, while at the front and rear the LEDs are styled like claw marks. There’s a grille and some strong vertical air inlets, giving the e-Legend much more of a ‘face’ than many electric concepts. Matthias Houssan, concept car design manager, says: ‘We tried to keep some realism – the size of the wheels, the size of the glasshouse, which is not small like some concept cars, which are like caricatures. The fact that we managed to keep the car in a realistic scale is my favourite part.’ The 100kWh batteries are in the floor, with electric motors driving all four wheels. While stressing that this is a concept, not a prototype, Peugeot claims a power output of around 456bhp and 590lb ft of torque, with a top speed close to 140mph and a 0-62mph time below four seconds. Range would be around 370 miles – and a fast charge could get you 310 miles of range in just 25 minutes. It would also be equipped for inductive charging. Into the blue: inside the concept car The interior is every bit as striking as the body, mixing brash blue with dark wood and bronze, plus a giant screen and a retractable steering wheel and pedalbox for when the e-Legend is running autonomously. There’s a head-up display for when the driver is in control. The concept’s four seats have blue velvet upholstery, with the driver’s seat also supporting the centre console, which follows the same angular thinking as Peugeot’s current production i-Cockpit. It has two autonomous modes: Soft, for chilled-out cruising with the screen minimised, and Sharp for those wanting to work or be entertained on the move. There are also two manual modes: Legend, which swivels three 504 Coupe-style dials into action and adds digital wood to the real wood, and Boost, which projects the road ahead on the 49in screen, turning the car – rather confusingly – into a giant simulator of the real world that’s happening outside at that very moment. The cabin changes will be accompanied by dynamic changes to the suspension and power characteristics. Houssan says: ‘When driving is boring, you will be in autonomous mode, but when you want to drive you want the experience to be intense and exciting.’ How real is the e-Legend? Although it’s firmly a concept, it’s a runner… albeit at walking pace. The concept has a motor in the back, driving the rear wheels. CAR had a passenger ride, and found the ambience to be superb. Peugeot 504 and Peugeot e-Legend Concept: which do you prefer? Will it go into production? It’s certain to inform whatever Peugeot does next, whether that’s fully electric or perhaps not so far along the electrification spectrum. Insiders say five to seven years is a realistic target date for an all-electric production car. Peugeot is not aiming to be ahead of the curve – it’s aiming for the mass market, not the early adopter. The e-Legend also incorporates a voice-activated digital assistant for use during autonomous driving; trigger phrase is ‘OK Peugeot’. A version will appear on production Peugeots within two years. It’s not Peugeot’s first electric concept. Recent show cars have included the 2015 Fractal urban electric coupe (which previewed the i-Cockpit) and the 2017 Instinct (a shooting brake that debuted many of the new 508’s design features). What’s different this time is the embrace of Peugeot’s own heritage to produce a gorgeous car that would look in place on today’s roads. Peugeot CEO Jean-Philippe Imparato speaks of the e-Legend embodying an ‘optimistic and ultra-desirable future
  15. Hi, Just to check, if there is any one here that drives a Peugeot Partner?? I'm driving a partner model 2015, and I do not have any good experience with them. anyone here has any good or bad experience to share? In a nutshell, got my ride in dec and it's been 7 times that i have been to the workshop to resolve the same issues. and yes, same issues dont get resolve. issues are not critical, but i wonder how many times do i have to visit them. the vehicle is good to drive but it seems that servicing is pale in comparison. original intention is to buy a 5008, but i think i should just keep my money till my view changes.
  16. Would like to find out from current Diesel Engine car owners your feedback on reliability? Is the maintenance cost high? So far any problem with your Diesel engine? DPF blocked? Any such encounter?
