Peugeot has launched “Alchemy”, a brand advertising campaign providing a spectacular take on the company’s symbols, innovation and values, in association with the launch of a new brand identity, a new Lion, the new Peugeot SR1 Concept Car, and move towards marketing an electric car.
The Peugeot SR1 “dream car” explores and reinterprets the theme of the “Grand Touring Car”, using HYbrid4 technology to offer an engineering specification in keeping with its styling: 230 kW (313 bhp) with emissions of only 119 g/km of CO2 (0 in electric mode), 4 wheel drive and steering. The Lion on the radiator grille is simpler in its design, more dynamic, with a new posture and a new fluidity, and creates a bimetallic effect through the contrast of its mat/lustrous finish. This Lion is also the Marque’s new logo, three-dimensional for greater modernity, jettisoning the blue flag for a more forceful effect. The Peugeot blue has become darker and is now combined with the new typography of the Marque’s name. The first vehicle to display the new Lion is the Peugeot RCZ which will be launched in the spring of 2010.
Peugeot’s new brand is online at www.new-peugeot.com, providing visitors with an interactive experience of the company’s emerging framework.
