Peugeot coupé concept to be revealed tomorrow
The 504-like car, which draws styling cues from the Instinct concept, has been two years in the making
No details have been given about the car’s powertrain, but some degree of electrification is expected, given the switch to electric mobility across the industry and the concept’s forward-looking themes.

Styling, however, is decidedly retro in its execution, with lines and the car’s rear end drawing heavily from the 504 coupé of the late 1960s. Peugeot boss Jean-Philippe Imparato said: “When I saw it for real, it made me feel like a child.”
Imparato has previously hinted to Autocar that the car will preview a potential range-topping model, meaning that, unlike other concepts produced by the brand, the coupé could make production.
A more comprehensive image of the car was tweeted from Peugeot’s main Twitter account but has been since taken down.
Even the car’s name is under wraps, as is the majority of its styling, but the image clearly shows the coupé’s shape, with wide wheel arches and a two-door bodystyle, as well as details taken from the Instinct shooting brake concept such as the rear lights.
No interior details have been disclosed, but the car could have a cabin based around Peugeot’s i-Cockpit digital dashboard, albeit a next-generation system. A four-seat layout is expected, akin to the RCZ, which halted production in 2015.
