The Peugeot 508 is the marque’s new design look, which has evolved from the stylistic codes first unveiled on the SR1 Concept Car.

All engines will come with Peugeot’s new e-HDi stop and start system. 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 200bhp performance with all-wheel drive and emissions of 99g/km of CO2 or zero in electric mode.

The Peugeot 508 will be available in two body styles: a saloon (with a length of 4.79 m) and a SW (4.81 m). Both models will be revealed in October at the Paris Motor Show, and will go on sale at the beginning of 2011.

Utilising the PSA Group’s platform 3, the 508 will be produced in Rennes in France, for the European market and in 2011 in China, for the Chinese market.
