Peugeot is planning a dramatic new concept car that previews a potential new range-topping model.
While details of the concept car are scarce, CEO Jean-Philippe Imparato confirmed to Autocar that the Paris motor show in September would play host to “something very outstanding and radical”. The concept is likely to be electric.
This would be in line with Peugeot’s plans for every new model from 2019 to have an electrified version, according to Imparato. He said the firm would not be launching stand-alone electric vehicles, nor dropping diesel. Instead, an electrified version would be one of the options available in any given model range, alongside traditional petrol engines and, in most line-ups, diesel.
“One hundred per cent of new launches will have electrified versions from 2019,” said Imparato. “You will buy your Peugeot and choose the engine for your need. It will not be the same in every country and city, and we must cope with that.
