Peugeot's new Instinct concept promises full autonomous drive and more
Peugeot has unveiled what it believes is the future of the shooting brake - the cloud-connected, ultra smart (and fully autonomous) Instinct concept car.
Unveiled last week in Spain on the eve of the Mobile World Congress (MWC), the Peugeot Instinct is powered by a PHEV powertrain offering 300 Ps. The car features both ‘Drive’ and ‘Autonomous’ modes, affording the driver the choice between an engaging drive and the convenience of a fully autonomous vehicle.
Peugeot is presenting the Instinct less as a traditional motor and more of a lounge on wheels, one that adapts to its users preferred settings to each journey feels more like a chilled sit-down at home than a session on the road. Its ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT) platform, the Samsung ArtikTM Cloud, will also sync with all your devices so you're never disconnected from the world.
Said cabin, the i-Cockpit, is an interior architecture with a highly tactile, adaptable cabin, which switches from being a focused driving environment to a comfortable lounge space. Couple that with the ability to sync your diary with the car (so you're never late for another meeting) and this could well be a very comfortable vision of the motoring future.
The Peugeot Instinct Concept is on show now at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona.
