The Peugeot 504 Coupé is a mid-size, front-engine, rear wheel drive vehicle that was produced by the auto manufacturer between 1968 – 1983, and offered in several configurations, including four-door sedan, wagon, two-door coupe, convertible as well as a pickup truck. The Peugeot e-Legend breathes new life into this classic vehicle and electrifies things, literally.
Unlike the 504 Coupé, the e-Legend is powered by a large 100-kWh battery pack generating 456 horsepower and an impressive 590 pound-feet of torque, enabling it to accelerate from 0-62 mph in under four seconds, while being able to achieve a top speed of 137 mph. On a full charge, you can expect a range o about 373 miles. However, a quick 25 minute fast charge will get you back up to 311 miles of range.
What would an electric vehicle be without a self-driving mode, right? The e-Legend offers four different modes: ‘Soft’ for autonomy; ‘Sharp’ puts things back in manual mode; ‘Legend’ to just cruise; and ‘Boost’ for just a bit more oomph when canyon carving. Soundhound, the voice-activated personal assistant technology, automatically adapts to the selected mode.
Rather than go for pure opulence, Peugeot wanted to take a more minimalist approach for the interior. Featuring a 6-inch touchscreen with a rotary knob, a digital toggle bar for the different driving modes right next to the steering wheel, and we can’t forget about the 29-inch screens in the doors, the 12-inch displays embedded directly into the sun visors, or the curved 49-inch display. In all, there’s 16 displays installed throughout the cabin.
