E-Legend is a modern interpretation of the 1969 Peugeot 504 coupe. Its distinctive retro style is reminiscent of the Nissan IDx, which is never destined to stand on the conveyor. Both prototypes were inspired by the coupe, developed in the late 60s, so the similarity between them can be attributed to the stylistic trends of the era.
The design of the current version is true to the original coupe, but at the same time modern. The Peugeot E-Legend is about 4.6 meters long, 1.9 meters wide and 1.36 meters high, making it close in size to the BMW M4, but with a shorter wheelbase of 2.7 meters.
All-wheel drive electric power plant "Legends" received a power of 456 liters. from. and powered by a 100-kilowatt battery. Peugeot says the battery provides 600 km of power reserve (on the WLTP cycle) and can be recharged up to 80 percent in 25 minutes due to fast charging. The acceleration of an electric vehicle from 0 to 100 km/h is less than 4 seconds, and the maximum speed is 220 km/h.
According to the manufacturer, PEUGEOT e-LEGEND expands the possibilities of operating a fully unmanned vehicle on electric traction and with connected services. The improved driver seat Responsive i-Cockpit is complemented by new features that provide the pleasure of controlling the car in each of the 4 available modes.

The luxurious cabin has a diffuser that can fill the interior with one of two fragrances created specifically for E-Legend by Ex-Nihilo perfume manufacturer.
The shape of the seats is inspired by the classic PEUGEOT 504 Coupe: more volume with the most compact dimensions, comfort combined with ease and delicate support thanks to the use of materials with shape memory. The head restraints are height adjustable or completely hidden in the seat. The branded instrument panel PEUGEOT Responsive i-Cockpit® uses the basic concept of PEUGEOT i-Cockpit®.
