Default Peugeot Fractal concept

The Peugeot Fractal has been revealed in its full glory through leaked official images.

It was just earlier today when Peugeot released new teaser images with the Fractal concept and now we have fully revealing pictures of the car to share. They show the machine takes the shape of a small roadster, featuring distinctive design influenced by the Peugeot Vision Gran Turismo virtual concept.

The Fractal comes with a futuristic interior, equipped with a slim center console with a tablet, controlling the infotainment system and attached buttons for the audio system and the engine start-stop functions. We also noticed a battery charge icon with “62% - 98km” information, which probably hints the car is powered by a fully electric powerplant.

The Fractal concept will likely be revealed in a couple of days, so stay tuned for more details.

Hideous and wrong looking in every possible way.

Looks cool to me, liking the direction Pug may be going in with the last couple of concepts.

It has 3D-printed interior and sound signature created by sound designer Amon Tobin.

Following yesterday’s leaked photos, Peugeot has officially unveiled the Fractal concept ahead of its world debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

Described as a “prospective electric urban coupé design,” the Fractal features an evolution of the Peugeot i-Cockpit with enhanced acoustic sensations.

The car features an innovative ‘9.1.2’ sound system combining a high-quality set-up that features tactile bass systems built into the back of each seat to make driving more instinctive, using acoustics to convey information to the driver.

The Fractal also features a sound signature created by sound designer Amon Tobin, which plays when the driver opens the doors using the smart watch remote system, as well as on the road to alert other users, especially pedestrians and cyclists.

The study’s head-up display features a high-definition holographic screen and a 45-degree polycarbonate strip that delivers additional information and helps create an impression of depth. This allows the driver to customize the way information is shown.

Peugeot says the Fractal is an ideas incubator, with 3D-printed parts representing more than 80 percent of the interior trim surface.

The study is really compact, at 3.81m long and 1.77m wide, with an overhang of just 0.52m front and back in order to maximize space utilization and improve maneuverability. It rides on 19-inch Tall&Narrow wheels positioned at either end of the car.

The Fractal features dynamic lines highlighted by the Coupe Franche bi-color finish which combines intense pearly white with matt black. The upper body features a removable roof which turns the coupé into a cabriolet.

The vehicle is powered by two electric motors on the front and rear axles that deliver 102PS (101hp) each, for a total output of 204PS (201hp). Driving range is up to 450 km (280 miles), thanks to a 30kWh lithium-ion battery housed in the central tunnel.

Tipping the scales at just 1,000 kg (2,205 lbs), Peugeot Fractal sprints from from 0 to 62mph (100 km/h) in 6.8 seconds and can cover 1,000 meters from a standing start in 28.8 seconds.

Interestingly, the Peugeot Fractal has variable ground clearance, allowing it to adapt to different types of terrain. For example, for motorway driving the Fractal uses a 70mm clearance for improved aerodynamics and battery life. Ride height can be increased to 110mm in urban environments.
It is so cool!
