The Peugeot Touareg was a far-out proposal for an electric
The 859 kg (1874 lb) Touareg concept was motivated by
a mid-mounted 1855 volt electric motor which developed
144 ft-lbs of torque at 1500 rpm. This unit gave the concept
a 70 mph top speed and 300 km range.
The bulbous moon-buggy styling of the Peugeot Touareg
was enhanced by the use of innovative 18" wheels
which seemed to meld the wheel into the tire.
The two-seat passenger compartment of the concept is housed
in a carbon frame, the body is formed from moulded plastic.
