Peugeot Fractal Concept 04

Peugeot is probably looking straight at the Mazda MX-5 with the new Fractal concept, which will make a live debut at this month’s Frankfurt Motor Show.

Described as an electric urban coupe, the Fractal concept is driven by electric motors on both axles with 204 hp and a combined range of up to 450 km/h, thanks to a 30kW lithium-ion battery placed in the centre tunnel.

The amount of power will surely be more than enough for the small coupe, which measures in at just 3.81 m long and 1.77 m wide. It has a short overhang at both ends and rides on 19-inch wheels wrapped in low-rolling resistance tyres. Interestingly enough, the coupe has a variable ground clearance from as low as 70 mm to 110 mm depending on types of surface.

Tipping the scale at just 1,000 kg, the Fractal is capable of sprinting from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.8 seconds. The car is so quick, it can cover 1,000 m in just 28.8 seconds.

The exterior might spark your interest, but it’s the interior that gets most of the limelight. 80 percent of the parts are 3D printed while more than 15 square metres of the cabin are covered in anechoic motifs to help enhance acoustic comfort. The car also has a 9.1.2 audio system as well as a sound signature created by sound designer Amon Tobin, which plays when the driver opens the doors using the smartwatch remote system.

Elsewhere, the Fractal features a head-up display with a 45-degree polycarbonate strip for additional info, a 12.3- and 7.7-inch displays, kinaesthetic driver’s seat and a compact steering wheel with integrated touchpad.
