At the Paris Motor Show yesterday, Peugeot CEO Linda Jackson that the brand will reveal the Peugeot Inception Concept, the brand’s vision for the next generation of e-Native cars. The Inception Concept will show the quantum leap the French brand will soon make in focusing on a dedicated 100% electric product offering.
In the meantime, Peugeot will continue to capitalize on the success of its electrified products and is swiftly extending its electrified range:
- In their respective segments, the e-208 and the e-2008 have been No. 1 and No. 2 for full-electric sales in Europe since the beginning of the year.
- 100% electric versions of the 308 and 308 station wagon will be launched in 2023, as well as a new e-208 with 15% more output (115 kW or 154 horsepower) and an extended range by 10.5% (400 kilometers or 249 miles).
- Self-charging Hybrid technology will be introduced across the Peugeot lineup in 2023, starting with the Peugeot 3008 and 5008 models.
- Peugeot’s offer of plug-in hybrid (PHEV) models is extended with the new Peugeot 408, which has just had its World Debut in Paris and is available in two different versions (180 horsepower and 225 horsepower).
“2023 will be Peugeot’s electric year: As early as 2023, we will offer an electrified version of every Peugeot model. But we are also looking far beyond that”, said Linda Jackson, Peugeot CEO at the Paris Motor Show. “We will also continue to rapidly electrify our range and will launch no less than 5 full electric models within the next 2 years. This means that Peugeot will already have a 100% electric offer for all models in 2025. At the same time, we are preparing the launches of Peugeot’s next generation of e-Native models – based on new platforms designed for pure electric vehicles. This is what will be demonstrated by the Peugeot Inception Concept that we will reveal in the weeks to come. Its name says it all: the Peugeot Inception Concept will open the new 100% electric era for the Peugeot brand with a promise: as early as 2030, 100% of the Peugeot models sold in Europe will be 100% electric.”
The Inception Concept will showcase how the “Lion” brand takes advantage of the next generation of electric-native platforms to re-invent the whole automobile experience. Peugeot is profoundly re-designing the interior space, reshaping driving gestures around the next-generation Peugeot i-Cockpit, and creating new digital and physical experiences.
The Inception Concept will also bring the design language of the brand to the next level, while further enhancing its most typical traits – a feline posture and three-claw light signatures.
Resolutely displaying an optimistic vision of the automotive future, the Inception Concept will embody the brand’s core values – Allure, Emotion, and Excellence – and everything that makes a Peugeot, a Peugeot. Marking the beginning of a new era for the brand, the Inception Concept will provide a taster of the brand’s next generation of models and show the way for features and technology that Peugeot customers will find on their new Lion-branded car from the middle of the decade.
