It seems Peugeot is responding to Citroen's design revolution! This is a Concept that Peugeot can easily exploit to make waves on the global scene as Citroen is currently doing. Astonishing achievement.

And note it is not really summer yet, so the figure can still be improved later this year. Peugeot people may hurry to take it only for Le Mans marketing campaign.

Might have been faster if the daytime running lights weren't sapping the power.
