Peugeot Exalt concept reworked for 2014 Paris Motor Show

The Peugeot Exalt four-door “coupe” fastback has been reworked slightly, both inside and out, for its appearance at the 2014 Paris Motor Show.

For the Paris show, the Exalt has its rear “shark skin” rear end repainted a shade of grey; the original Exalt, which debuted at the Beijing Auto Show earlier this wore a red tail.

The interior has also been revised, with the wood elements now crafted from recycled newspapers instead of dark wood in the original vehicle.

Like the initial version of the Exalt, the reworked concept car’s outer shell is primarily unpainted metal.

The Exalt is powered by a petrol-electric plug-in hybrid drivetrain, dubbed HYbrid-kick, and features a 201kW 1.6-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, from the Peugeot RCZ-R, powering the front wheels via a 6-speed auto, while at the rear there’s a 50kW electric motor. The Exalt rides on 20-inch alloy wheels.
