This is the new Peugeot 508, which looks great and which will be available as a hybrid.
The 508 will be launched in 2011 when Peugeot’s new e-HDi stop and start system will be available. This is the first of the new generation of stop and start systems which offers improved driveability and economy enhancements of up to 15%.
After launch, Peugeot’s HYbrid4 technology will become available on the 508 and will provide 200 bhp performance with all-wheel drive and emissions of 99 g/km of CO2 or zero in electric mode.
Peugeot says that it has made special efforts to reduce the weight and improve the aerodynamics of the car.
It has a new design look, which will be subsequently rolled out on the brand’s other models, and it will be available in Saloon and SW body styles. It certainly looks much more upmarket and stylish than recent Peugeot efforts.
Both Peugeot 508 models will be revealed to the public in October at the Paris Motor Show and will go on sale at the beginning of 2011.
