Peugeot Exalt Concept 2014

Peugeot is showcasing the Peugeot Exalt Concept Car in a new livery at the Paris Motor Show next month. The bodywork features shades of grey that emanate from the bare steel covering the majority of the exterior to the distinctive ‘Shark Skin’ rear end. Inside, the ‘Newspaper Wood’ finish borrows (literally) from the pages of major business dailies.
The tailgate features an ingenious opening mechanism and provides easy access to the HYbrid-kick, an innovative electric scooter, stowed below the boot floor.
With Exalt, Peugeot continues to build on the imposing vision of large-saloon initiated with the ONYX Concept in 2012. A vision embodied by materials that achieve a blend of balance, local sourcing, recycling-based production and more.
This new automotive experience is powered by a petrol-electric HYbrid4 drivetrain with a combined output of 340hp.
“Peugeot’s 125-year automobile history is punctuated by models that made a mark on their era. With the Peugeot Exalt Concept, the Brand has reasserted its position and opened a new chapter. We are moving forward, resolutely, with confidence.”
Maxime Picat, Peugeot Brand Chief Executive Officer

A dynamic saloon

With its sleek, athletic lines, Exalt embodies all the power of Peugeot design. Sitting on wide tracks with powerfully rounded wheel arches, the five-door saloon expresses its style over a length of 4.70m, combining flat surfaces and straight-cut lines to strike the perfect balance between aggressiveness and softness.  Exalt is unashamedly radical, stripped of any superfluous materials to retain only what is necessary. All materials have been carefully selected with an eye to efficiency.
“The Peugeot Exalt is athletic, powerful and sleek, sporting an array of original materials. Its cabin, trimmed in natural materials, is dedicated to comfort and instinctive driving. This innovative concept makes the saloon even more attractive and more versatile, in particular the tailgate, with its unique opening mechanism and large boot.”
Pierre Paul Mattei, Peugeot Exalt Styling Manager

The Peugeot Exalt also offers exceptional versatility for a saloon. The tailgate features an innovative pantograph mechanism, which allows maximum opening while needing less space externally. The tailgate and integral motorised hobby flap reveals a boot with a low load sill, providing easy access to the HYbrid-kick Concept - a foldaway electric scooter stowed below the boot floor that represents an ideal addition when it comes to covering last-mile mobility. Its ease of use makes getting around town so much easier.
“Peugeot holds a unique position in the market with its range of two-, three- and four-wheeled mobility solutions. Combining an electric scooter with our Peugeot Exalt Concept demonstrates Peugeot's ability to offer an integrated, innovative solution to cover last-mile mobility requirements.”
Xavier Peugeot, Peugeot Product Director

Instinctive driving

The Peugeot i-Cockpit delivers an intense driving experience dedicated to enjoyment. The small steering wheel is trimmed in leather and chiné—a natural wool-based mixed fabric—and the digital instrument panel is intuitively arranged in front of the driver to improve operation and visibility. On the extended centre console, two folding touchscreens emerge from the dashboard. The upper screen gives access to the on-board computer and the Hi-Fi and navigation systems. The second screen presents a permanently visible control bar to provide access to the automatic air conditioning and the ‘Pure Blue’ system.
Activation of the black light system can also be assigned to one of the toggle switches. Built into the headlamps, this system is particularly useful when driving at dawn or dusk: visibility issues are reduced and driving becomes more relaxed with black light improving the clarity of road markings.
For the comfort of its occupants, the Peugeot Exalt is fitted with an innovative air treatment system called ‘Pure Blue’. When the vehicle is stationary and unoccupied, Pure Blue emits bactericides and fungicides to purify the cabin surfaces. Once the vehicle is moving, an active filter treats the air before it enters the cabin, eliminating volatile organic compounds (VOC) and fine particles. As a result, driver and passengers can always travel in a purified environment.

Visionary design

“The Peugeot Exalt features raw and natural elements paired with innovative and efficient materials. The idea was to finish the car with useful touches and to do so intelligently, with a view to constantly optimising processes to economise on the use of materials and reduce waste. This responsible approach is also applied in the local sourcing of materials, such as replacing the Asian ebony used in China with Newspaper Wood in Europe.”
Sophie Gazeau, Peugeot Exalt Colours and Materials Stylist

The Peugeot Exalt advances the approach initiated by the ONYX Concept in 2012.

As part of the campaign to ensure sourcing as close as possible to relevant markets, in China, Exalt used ebony, chosen because of its plentiful growth in Asia; in Europe, this material has been replaced by ‘Newspaper Wood’, which, as the name implies, is made from recycled newspapers. This new type of wood has evolved since its initial use on the ONYX Concept. It is now obtained by recycling business papers, creating a distinctive salmon-pink hue.
Finally, carbon fibre gives way to basalt fibre, a natural composite. Produced by smelting the stone of the same name, basalt fibre reduces the use of petrochemical resources.

High-performance drive train

Weighing just 1,700kg, the Peugeot Exalt is powered by a plug-in HYbrid4 drive train with a combined maximum power of 340hp shared between the four wheels.
The chiselled bonnet houses the 1.6-litre THP 270hp engine developed by Peugeot Sport. Coupled with a six-speed automatic gearbox, this four-cylinder petrol engine develops a specific power output of nearly 170hp per litre, making it one of the best in the world.
The multi-link rear axle contains a 50kW electric motor for electric or hybrid phases of operation. This motor is also used to recharge the battery through energy-recovery braking. On deceleration, braking is produced by the resistant torque of the electric motor. In this way HYbrid4 technology draws electricity from kinetic energy that would otherwise be dissipated as heat through the braking system.
HYbrid4 is smart technology able to instantly adapt to the driver’s wishes by selecting the most suitable mode: all-electric, petrol-only or as a petrol-electric hybrid, allowing the driver to feel the intensity of the journey and savour Peugeot’s expertise in road performance.
