Official words :
The Peugeot 888 is the personal vehicle for the future Metropolis. The car carries two persons and medium amount of luggage. This is the car for traveling within the city and to the suburbs, for daily driving and weekend cruising.

When driving in the city the vehicle has the ability to ”shrink”. The center of the cars profile has a hydraulic tilting system that rises the car, making the distance between the wheel axis decrease. This results in a rise up cockpit which enhance the drivers traffic overview. The short wheel axis distance will also increase the manouverability in narrow places making the car able to take a sharp u-turn. A short wheel axis distance also makes it easier to find a suitable parking space.

When leaving the city, entering the highway the vehicles requirements alter to ”need for speed” Lowering the vehicle to a closed shape, the car gets a long distance between the wheel axis and a low point of gravity which gives the car stability at high speed. The cockpit lies down and the driver gets a more cruising position.
