The Peugeot 504 reincarnated as the all-electric e-Legend concept

Peugeot is glimpsing into its future with the new e-Legend Concept. But we’re thrilled to see that the history-steeped French brand looked back to one of its prettiest creations, the Pininfarina-designed 504 coupé, for inspiration…

Poised to make its debut at the Paris Motor Show in October, the Peugeot e-Legend is an all-electric, autonomous, and connected concept that provides a glimpse into the French marque’s future while simultaneously recalling one of its most beloved cars: the 504 coupé, which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. It’s a handsome beast, managing to capture the spirit of the original car while also sending a strong message about the Peugeot design language of the future. 

Developing some 450bhp, the four-wheel-drive concept is said to sprint from 0–62mph in less than four seconds and travel 600 kilometers on a single charge. Additionally, there are four different driving modes: Soft and Sharp, which are both autonomous and focus on comfort and connectivity respectively, and Legend and Boost, which both require the driver’s input for either relaxed or dynamic driving. But who really cares about all that when the e-Legend has blue velvet upholstery?!
