The technology incorporated makes every journey an experience. The driver feels the intensity of the journey, enjoying PEUGEOT’s know-how in road performance.
Weighing just 1,700 kg, PEUGEOT EXALT is powered by a plug-in HYbrid4 drive train with a total maximum power of 340 hp shared between the four wheels. The chiselled bonnet houses the 1.6 THP 270 hp developed by PEUGEOT Sport. Coupled with a 6-speed automatic gearbox, this 4-cylinder petrol engine develops a specific power output of nearly 170 hp per litre, making it one of the best in the world. At the rear, the multi-link rear axle contains a 50 kW electric machine for electric or hybrid phases of operation. This machine also intervenes to recharge the battery through energy recovery braking. On deceleration, braking is produced by the resistant torque of the electric machine. In this way the HYbrid4 technology converts into electricity the kinetic energy that would otherwise have been dissipated as heat through the brake discs and pads. Intelligent technology, HYbrid4 instantly adapts to the driver’s wishes by selecting the most suitable mode: pure electric, petrol only, petrol-electric hybrid. This technology is also available on 3008 Hybrid4 and 508 Hybrid4.
For the comfort of its occupants, PEUGEOT EXALT is fitted with an innovative air treatment system called Pure Blue. When stationary, with the vehicle empty, Pure Blue purifies the cabin surfaces by spreading bactericides and fungicides. Once the vehicle is moving, an active filter treats the air before it enters the cabin, eliminating VOCs (volatile organic compounds) and fine particles. So in all circumstances the occupants travel in a purified environment.
Toggle Switches are arranged in two groups, two to the left of the small steering wheel, seven to the right. The driver can associate them with the functions and commands he desires. 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 during the transition between day and night. Visibility issues are reduced and driving becomes more relaxed with black light, improving the noticeability of road markings.
