Peugeot today unveiled its centerpiece for the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show, the hip, all-electric Fractal concept. Built to showcase a range of new Peugeot in-car audio and entertainment technologies, the Fractal features a high-power audio system and an upgraded version of Peugeot’s i-cockpit dash layout.
If it wasn’t immediately obvious, the Fractal concept is small – just 3.8 meters long and 1.8 meters wide, to be exact. This means it tips the scales at just 1,000 kg (2,204 lbs), helping it to achieve 280 miles of range from its twin 101 horsepower electric motors and 40-kWh battery pack.
The futuristic look of the Fractal concept isn’t reserved to the exterior. Inside, the interior is made up of angular 3D printed elements. In fact, over 80% of the interior was produced via 3D printing. Peugeot’s 9.1.2 audio system is the highlight of the interior, though. The name represents the number of speakers (nine), bass woofers (one) and two tactile bass systems (two), a combination that makes “driving more instinctive by enriching information through the use of acoustics,” Peugeot says.
Finally, if you own a Samsung Gear S smartwatch, you may use it to open the Fractal’s doors, adjust the climate control settings, check the battery levels and more.
