Many world's automotive manufacturers displaying their flagship products at the 2014 Beijing Motor Show, the French automotive company will also feature a new concept car dubbed as the Peugeot Exalt, a coupe type car that is designed with a sporty element to the show every curve of its body.

First seen on Onyx, the distinct line in the Exalt’s side separates a bare metal front from a textured material that Peugeot says was inspired by the skin of a shark. Inside, sound deadening material ensures a quiet and peaceful ambience, and this is enhanced by premium materials used for surfaces such as natural wool, aged leather, bare steel and a variety of real wood elements. Peugeot Exalt offers a unique driving experience through a comfortable cabin through wood panels, black and gray.

Under the hood is the latest version of Peugeot’s HYbrid4 ‘through-the-road’ hybrid all-wheel-drive system, which is claimed to deliver 340 horsepower total system output. HYbrid4, which is already available on some Peugeot models, was originally developed for Peugeot’s Le Mans efforts and uses an internal combustion engine to power one axle and an electric motor for the opposing axle. In the case of the Exalt, a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder and six-speed automatic is mounted up front and an electric motor is at the rear.
