The Peugeot 508 introduces a new design, which has evolved from the stylistic codes first unveiled on the SR1 Concept Car. Combining both a stylish and strong design with cutting-edge technology; quality, purity and efficiency have been the watchwords that have guided Peugeot designers and engineers during the creation of the 508.
The exterior design is elegant and timeless, the interior combines high tech with the use of quality materials and there's exceptional interior space.
The 508 has been designed to optimize the performance of its engines, enhance environmental efficiency, reduce weight and improve aerodynamics, matched to a broad range of efficient engines.
All engines will benefit from the latest engine technology including Peugeot's new e-HDi stop/start system. This is the first of the new generation, which offers economy improvements of up to 15%.
After launch, Peugeot's HYbrid4 technology will become available on the 508 and will provide 200hp 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 sedan and station wagon. Both will be revealed to the public in October at the Paris Motor Show, and will go on sale at the beginning of 2011.
Utilizing the PSA Group's platform 3, the 508 will be produced in Rennes in France, for the European market and in China for the Chinese market.
