Peugeot Instinct . Picture of Peugeot Instinct Concept Leaked Ahead of Debut. Peugeot Instinct concept is planned to be revealed for the first time at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show on March 7th. However, only several days ahead of its debut, a picture of the concept is leaked online.
The image appeared for the first time on the official website of Geneva Motor Show, which is not exactly the place we visit to look for leaked information. The picture was immediately taken down from the show’s website, but it is too late as the picture was already republished in Worldscoop and some other online forums.
Peugeot Instinct Specifications
The Peugeot Instinct picture shows a design study of a very interesting muscular 2-door with a combination of hatchback and coupe body style. The Instinct concept might not be sent into production, but it shows where Peugeot will take its design direction in the future.
From the leaked picture, we can see some interesting things on the side profile. It comes with a set of aggressive looking 5-spoke alloy wheels as well as distinctive huge side skirts that give a track car vibe. Furthermore, take a closer look at the door, and you will notice that it doesn’t show any obvious handle.
Consequently, the concept probably will come with some modern door opening technology. Besides, instead of conventional wing mirrors, a pair of the small camera is attached to the front door.
At the front, the concept features sharp angled headlights with diagonal day running lights. But the most noteworthy thing on the front part is definitely the grille. The grille looks similar with the usual Peugeot grille, but it is very massive. Furthermore, the lack of air intakes there indicates that the Instinct concept could be equipped with the electric drivetrain.
Powertrain of this electric car – Peugeot Instinct
Speaking of the electric powertrain, the French automaker has announced its plan to launch fully electric and hybrid cars sometime in 2019. The electric drivetrain will be shared among its other cousins in PSA group, and DS will be the first to get it. After that, Peugeot and Citroen will follow suit. The fact that Peugeot will debut Instinct concept that is possibly come with electric powertrain shows that the electrification plan might come sooner than we think.
The information about Peugeot Instinct concept is indeed very limited at this time. If it is not for the leaked picture, we probably will not get anything at this point. But thankfully we don’t have to wait very long for further details because all should be revealed in just a matter of days when the concept makes its official debut in Swiss, which is only around a week left from now.
