Peugeot has introduced its striking Fractal concept at the Frankfurt Motor Show this week.

Yet another interesting concept from PSA that won't materialize into a production car, the Fractal is a coupe cabriolet primarily for the city as it's just 3.81 meters long and 1.77 meters wide. Aside from being very compact, the vehicle is also light since it tips the scales at only 1,000 kg (2,204 lbs) even though it's an electric vehicle with two electric motors sitting on the front and rear axles.

Each of these electric motors generate 102 PS (75 kW) and enable the Fractal to perform the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) task in 6.8 seconds, not too shabby for a car developed for the urban jungle. The 30 kWh battery grants a more than decent range of 280 miles (450 km) which in today's standards is quite impressive.

Although a production car is not on the agenda, Peugeot is telling us the design – obviously toned down a lot – serves a prospective look for a potential coupe/cabriolet with an electric powertrain tailored for the city.
