Peugeot Motorcycles, a Mahindra Group company, gives its premium three-wheeled scooter Metropolis a splendid facelift
The days of having to choose between design, safety and technology are over. Peugeot’s Metropolis, the world’s most technologically advanced and premium three-wheeled scooter, which has continually pushed the limits of performance since its launch in 2013, is now available in a new avatar.
Acquired by Mahindra in 2019, Peugeot Motorcycles recently unveiled the 2020 version of its gorgeous three-wheeled scooter. The Peugeot Metropolis – the only three-wheeler in the market -- rebootsin a version that is more powerful than ever.
The sharp and angular design of the 400i, along with the intricately drawn silhouette and lines that reflect the Metropolis DNA have now been enhanced by unprecedented automotive technologies. LED lights masked in black and chrome provide the look of a feline ready to spring. ‘Peugeot Metropolis’ and 400i badges enhance the side body.
Primed for safety
Designed for urban and suburban travel, the 400i continues to build on the brand’s state-of-the-art vehicle design and cutting-edge safety technologies. A spacious 17L boot under the front seat, an additional boot in the rear, as well as a large glove compartment, provide multiple storage options.
All-new braking system
The latest anti-locking braking system is complemented by a secure and robust Synchro braking concept as well as a rear-front combination brake system for better control. The emergency brake automatically trips warning lights which enhance the vehicle’s visibility. The system is triggered not only when the vehicle accelerates past 50km/h but also when it decelerates at more than 5m/s.This is the first time that this system, which was developed for automobiles, is being offered on a three-wheeler.
Smart Key tech
Smart Key technology connects the rider to the vehicle from up to 1.5m away, allowing contactless turning on of the ignition. It also allows riders to open the boot or fuel tank cap, and disconnect the electric parking brake, at the touch of a button.
The new Peugeot Metropolis delivers premium connectivity for ultimateriding experience. A fully redesigned dashboard showcases an anti-clockwise tachometer and a 5-inch TFT screen that provides access to i-Connect features via the Peugeot Motorcycles app. It allows riders to connect their smartphones to the dashboard and make any necessary adjustments before mounting on to the scooter.
The bend-by-bend navigation system, designed specifically for Peugeot scooter travel, is simpler than a conventional GPS and shows riders exactly where to turn and at what distance. The dashboard also displays calls and messages received as well as traditional information such as the fuel level, range, consumption, battery charge level, date and time – all on a raised meter that allows the rider to focus on the road and yet access information at a glance.
Both the models in the new 2020 Peugeot Metropolis edition – Active and Allure – can be further customised with an anti-theft device, seat protection cover, vehicle protection, smartphone holder, high comfort backrest, etc.
