A Peugeot concept model called Inception was added to the selection of futuristic concepts presented at the CES exhibition.
Car manufacturers often tend to exaggerate and get carried away about the meaning of concept models, but in this case Peugeot can be forgiven a little.
Inception should herald the next generation of the company's models from several important aspects, design and technology.

From the design point of view, you can see the new interpretation of the lighting units with the "lion's claws" signature on the front and back, which is under a uniform glass covering that stretches across the body, an element that can also reach the company's future models.
The huge glass roof that blends into a sharply angled windshield probably won't be seen on a production car anytime soon.
Beyond that, the sharp body lines and proportions are slightly reminiscent of the 408 that was introduced not long ago.
The passenger cabin also brings with it a new design thanks to some interesting elements, and brings a futuristic interpretation to Peugeot's i-Cockpit interface.
The dashboard is actually a projection of information on a cylindrical monitor located in front of the driver.
The rectangular steering wheel includes touch dials for the operation of the various systems, similar to the joystick of game consoles, and incorporates an additional information display in the center.
In addition, the steering wheel is able to fold when the car goes into autonomous driving mode, which according to Peugeot is level 4 allowing almost complete independence of the car.
The concept is built on the STLANTIS Group's new electric STLA Large platform, which is a debut for it.
The platform allows the Inception concept to use a battery with a capacity of 100 kWh, with Peugeot claiming a low energy consumption of 12.5 kWh per 100 km, which should allow a driving range of 800 km.
Charging technology at a voltage of 800 volts, which means that at adapted ultra-fast charging stations the battery is able to charge at a rate that adds 30 km of range per charging minute.
A pair of electric motors with a combined power of 680 hp are responsible for propulsion, allowing acceleration to 10 km/h in less than 3 seconds.
According to Peugeot, some of the technologies and ideas presented in the concept will reach the company's models as early as 2025, we assume that it is mainly everything related to the electric drive technology, but we would love to be surprised.
