PEUGEOT EXALT is made of raw and natural elements associated with innovative and efficient materials.
To improve the drag coefficient, the rear of EXALT is trimmed in Shark Skin, an efficient textile. Thanks to its technical grain structure, this material resulting from bio-mimicry markedly improves the aerodynamic performance of the vehicle, with the aim of reducing its fuel consumption.
Fabric and leather are worked together in a process that optimises the use of resources. To avoid off-cuts and waste, the fabric is shaped using clamps. This simple process is inspired by the tradition of fine gentlemen’s bespoke tailoring. The fabric then presents surfaces with crisp folds and no stitching. Leather for use in cars has always been selected for the absence of markings then tanned to make it perfect. Optimising the skins, EXALT makes use of imperfections in appearance to make each one a unique signature. Then the leathers are aged naturally, without the use of chemicals.
Black ebony wood has been selected for its rare qualities and its indigenous roots to the Asian continent. It bears a motif designed by the PINWU Design Trio agency. Combining a lion with bamboo stems and leaves, its creation was entrusted to a Chinese master craftsman using traditional techniques
Finally, carbon fibre gives way to basalt fibre, a natural composite. Produced by smelting the basalt stone, it reduces the use of petrochemical resources. Exalt's sills are composed of basalt fibre.
