The days of having to choose between design, safety and technology are over. The Peugeot Metropolis, the world’s most technologically advanced premium three-wheeled scooter, has continually pushed the limits of performance since its launch in 2013.
Now, Peugeot Motocycles has just launched the 2020 version of its gorgeous three-wheeled scooter. The Peugeot Metropolis – the only three-wheeler on the market borne of an automotive brand – is returning, stronger and more powerful than its forebears.
The sharp, angular design, its intricately drawn silhouette and lines reflect the Metropolis DNA, now 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 peri-urban travel, the 400i continues to build on the brand’s state-of-the-art vehicle design and its 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 more than adequate storage.
All-new Braking System
The latest Anti-Locking Braking system is complemented by a secure powerful Synchro Braking Concept, 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 1.5 m away, allowing riders to start their vehicles contact-free, as well as open the boot or fuel tank cap, and disconnect the electric parking brake – all at the touch of a button!
Premium rides demand premium connectivity, and the new Peugeot Metropolis delivers! A completely redesigned dashboard showcases an anti-clockwise tachometer and a 5-inch TFT screen that provides access to i-Connect features via the Peugeot Motocycles app. It allows riders to connect their smartphones to the dashboard and make any necessary adjustments before getting 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 dash 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 new 2020 Peugeot Metropolis models – Active and Allure – can be further customised with an anti-theft device, seat protection cover, vehicle protection, smart phone holder, high comfort back rest, etc.
