PEUGEOT FRACTAL negotiates city streets with ease, always in sync with its environment. The car is extremely compact, at 3.81 m long and 1.77 m wide, allowing it to weave through heavy traffic. The 19-inch Tall&Narrow wheels are positioned at either end of the car, with an overhang of just 0.52 m front and back to improve manoeuvrability. PEUGEOT FRACTAL strikes a natural balance and features an electric drive train enabling a new architecture. All components are positioned with efficiency in mind. The lithium-ion battery is housed in the central tunnel, which lowers the centre of gravity and improves weight distribution. It powers two electric motors, each delivering 75kW/102hp, fitted to the front and rear axles. The drive train enhances the aerodynamics of the car, an improvement reflected in the smaller intakes at the front, with less air needed for cooling.
The 40 kW/h battery powers two 75kW/102hp electric motors, one on each axle, and offers a combined cycle autonomy of 450 km. The four-wheel-drive electric steering ensures outstanding efficiency in the city and stability at highspeed. The air springs can function automatically or be controlled by the driver to adjust ground clearance between 7 cm and 11 cm: the lowest position optimises aerodynamics on the road and extends the PEUGEOT FRACTAL's autonomy; the highest clearance allows the car to negotiate city streets with ease and take speed humps and car park entrances in its stride. Weighing in at just 1,000 kg, PEUGEOT FRACTAL goes from 0 kph to 100 kph (0 to 62mph) in 6.8 seconds while offering a new sensory experience for the ears, and can cover 1,000 metres from a standing start in 28.8 seconds. An LED strip above the vent at the rear shows the battery charge status via an equaliser-type display. These LEDs also act as rear lights when PEUGEOT FRACTAL is moving. The light signature in the front starts below the grille and flows over the headlamps. It also includes scrolling indicators.
The PEUGEOT FRACTAL's styling also embodies the car's ease in an urban environment, which is reflected in the dynamic lines that flow along the length of the smooth body. The Coupe Franche, a straight-line dual-paint finish, further enhances the sense of vitality with a sharp shift from intense white to matt black at the door hinges. The upper body features a removable roof to turn the coupé into a cabriolet.
