PEUGEOT celebrates electricity on the PEUGEOT Adventure stand at Rétromobile
The 45th edition of the Rétromobile show will be held from February 5 to 9, 2020 at Paris Porte de Versailles. To support the energy transition, the PEUGEOT brand puts the spotlight on the PEUGEOT Citroën DS Adventure stand for PEUGEOT electric vehicles marketed from 1941 until the new PEUGEOT e-208 recently launched. The 130,000 visitors expected will be able to admire for five days: the VLV (Light City Vehicle), the PEUGEOT 106 Electric, the first 100% electric EX1 Concept Car and the latest PEUGEOT e-208 of the lion brand. The PEUGEOT 404 which will celebrate its 60 th anniversary will also be present on the stand.
The PEUGEOT VLV (Light City Vehicle) is the brand's first electric vehicle, it was produced in 377 copies between 1941 and 1945. This vehicle, equipped with four 12-volt batteries, already offered a range of 75 to 80 km at a speed of 36 km / h.
The PEUGEOT 106 Electric, is a vehicle produced between 1993 and 2003 in 3,542 copies, it was mainly offered to communities and companies. It offered a range of 80 km at a speed of 91 km / h.
The Concept EX1, 100% electric, this concept established six records in 2010 including one by Nicolas Vanier, explorer and filmmaker French pilot and great defender of the environment. All of these performances constitute a world benchmark in terms of acceleration for an electric vehicle.
The PEUGEOT 404, launched in 1960, is distinguished by its very taut lines drawn by Pininfarina. The PEUGEOT 404 will have a very long international career and will reach a total production figure of almost 3 million copies. It had many versions: coupé, cabriolet, but also family, commercial station wagon, cab bed, covered van and ambulance station wagon
The PEUGEOT e-208, a 100% electric vehicle, launched in October 2019 in France completes this collection and will be accompanied, with the assistance of the Clubs, by its ancestors: the PEUGEOT 202, the PEUGEOT 204 and the PEUGEOT 205.
