Peugeot L500 R Hybrid PHEV racing concept

Peugeot has designed a new gasoline-electric plug-in hybrid racing concept: the L500 R Hybrid. Developed by Peugeot Sport teams, the 500-bhp plug-in hybrid powertrain features two electric motors (one front and one rear) plus a 270 hp gasoline engine, yielding peak torque of 730 N·m (538 lb-ft).

With its wide track, low profile (just one meter high) and light weight (1,000 kg), the takes just 2.5 seconds to reach 100 km/h from standstill, and 19 seconds to cover 1000 meters.

Driving sensations are amplified by a driver compartment deliberately designed to form an individual floating capsule enclosed in the bodywork. Through a prospective concept, the Peugeot single-seat i-Cockpit technology takes a radical motorsport stance, with a small steering wheel embedded in the structure and two holograms showing information in dual disc displays.

With Peugeot L500 R HYbrid we’re paying tribute to Peugeot racing exploits dating to the early 20th century. Inspired by this spirit of performance and innovation we wanted to convey a sculptural, elegant and technological view of the future of PEUGEOT motor sport.

—Matthias Hossann, Peugeot’s concept car and technological advance chief
