“SPx Project”, the vision of the future through the prism of Peugeot Motorcycles

In 1971, France’s cultural and social horizon was in turmoil following the aftermath of May ’68, and society as a whole oscillated between tradition and revolution. From that atmosphere of cultural revolution and social emancipation the Peugeot 103 would be born, a declaration of independence and a cry for freedom on two wheels.

The Peugeot 103 ushered in a new era of personal travel for everyone. And now, almost half a century later, the French brand presents SPx project trying to reinterpret the spirit of freedom of the Peugeot 103, this time with an electric motor, thus reaffirming the brand’s commitment to freedom and adaptability to the limitations of time.

SPx Project: Looking to the future

He SPx project It becomes the de facto way in which Peugeot Motocycles wants to influence the future (and social acceptance) of individual transportation. To do this, they allude to current issues in our society, such as urbanization, the transportation crisis or the well-known “ecological transition.”

He SPx project It does not provide a look into the future without turning its back on the past. In the words of Laurent LiltiProduct, Marketing and Communication Director of Peugeot Motocycles: “Whether powered by an internal combustion engine in 1971 or by an electric motor in 2024, the spirit of the Peugeot 103 remains a timeless emblem of freedom.”
