Peugeot RD Concept
The brainchild of 27-year-old Colombian design student Carlos Arturo Torres Tovar, the Peugeot RD concept is the winning design in the company’s 5th annual design competition, beating more than 2,500 projects from 95 different countries. The RD was built as a full-size model, rather than a drivable concept car, but its futuristic design alone is compelling, and fits perfectly with the design competition’s goal: “Imagine the Peugeot of the Worldwide Megalopolis of Tomorrow.”
The main innovative operating feature of the Peugeot RD Concept car is its ingenious system of articulation, which provides irreproachable road holding allied with the ability the easily thread its way through urban traffic.
Equipped with an environmentally friendly electric motor, the driving position in this single-seat concept offers a new feeling of freedom, thanks to its panoramic vision, voice-message driving assistance, and a heads-up display system that gives all the information required for travelling in complete safety.
This concept car combines the sensations of a 3-wheeled scooter with the driving pleasure of a saloon car, while retaining all the essential functions of both modes of transport—all while adding a silent environment.
Being accessible, solid and extremely simply designed, the Peugeot RD Concept car fits perfectly with the complicated mobility constraints one would encounter in a megalopolis of the future.
