The fantastic features of Peugeot e-Legend

Let's get started with the most quirky capability of the car and that is its autonomous driving. According to the company, the car is capable of autonomous driving although complete automation isn't incorporated into the system.
Four driving modes are present in this new electric coupé including autonomous driving and manual driving. Autonomous driving will have two modes, SOFT and SHARP while the manual modes are LEGEND and BOOST.
The SOFT mode focuses mainly on the ease and tranquility of the user by reducing the digital displays to a minimum possible point, whereas, the SHARP mode allows the driver and the passengers to engage in the social and digital activities at the maximum level.
The two manual modes, namely LEGEND and BOOST modes allow you to explore the speed and agility of this wonder. The BOOST mode will let you indulge in exploring the speed due to the presence of a powerful electric powertrain.
The LEGEND mode, as the name suggests, is the overpowering mode that creates a dashboard reflective of the 504 three dialed coupé and also ushers a digitally recreated wooden effect on various display screens.
The interior seating configuration of the coupé version boasts automatic adjustments according to the driving mode chosen. The addition of the traditional velvet in the seats of this new sensation also adds up to the charm.
The energetic four-wheel drive system also has the capability to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) in less than 4 seconds.
