Η Peugeot ανακοίνωσε ότι το 508 αποκτά έκδοση HYbrid4, κάνοντας το έτσι το τρίτο μοντέλο μετά τα 3008 και 508 RXH. Η έκδοση φορά τον 2.0-λιτρο HDi πετρελαιοκινητήρα στον μπροστά άξονα και τον ηλεκτροκινητήρα απόδοσης 27 kW (37 ίππων) στον πίσω άξονα, με την συνολική ισχύ να ανέρχεται στα 200 άλογα με 450 Nm ροπής. Έχει τέσσερα προγράμματα λειτουργίας ZEV, 4WD, Auto και Sport με την πρώτη να κινεί το αυτοκίνητο αποκλειστικά με τον ηλεκτροκινητήρα.

Έχει μέση κατανάλωση 3.6 λίτρα/100 χλμ και εκπομπές CO2 μόλις 95 γρ/χλμ. Τα 0-100 χλμ/ώρα τα κάνει 9.0 δευτερόλεπτα με την τελική ταχύτητα να αγγίζει τα 209 χλμ/ώρα.

Στιλιστικά ξεχωρίζει από το 508 από το λογότυπο στη γρίλια, ενώ ο χώρος αποσκευών έχει μειωθεί κατά 160 λίτρα, από τα 515 στα 355, λόγω του όγκου που καταλαμβάνει ο ηλεκτροκινητήρας και οι μπαταρίες του στον πίσω άξονα. Η κατασκευή του θα γίνεται στο εργοστάσιο της Peugeot στη πόλη Rennes, με τις πωλήσεις να ξεκινούν από τον Ιούνιο.

NEW PEUGEOT 508 HYbrid4

THE RANGE OF FULL HYBRID DIESELS EXPANDED WITH A 3RD VERSION

The innovative HYbrid4 technology is now offered with a 3rd body style in the Peugeot model range. After application to crossover and all road estate types, it is a saloon that now benefits from the unique abilities provided by the Full Hybrid Diesel. With CO2 emissions reduced to 95 g/km combined with a high level of performance, the 508 HYbrid4 represents an unequalled offering in its segment.

Peugeot is the precursor of the Full Hybrid Diesel. This technology, which is still unequalled in the market, was designed to be modular and adaptable to different platforms. With this new offering in the 508 range, Peugeot gives a 3rd dimension to HYbrid4.

Indeed the performance provided by this innovative drive train, which is based on the virtuous association of a 2.0 litre HDi Diesel engine producing 120 kW (163 hp) and a 27 kW (37 hp) electric motor, will allow the 508 HYbrid4 to win new market share, particularly with BtoB customers or in countries where there are high fiscal incentives related to CO2 emissions.

A technological step ahead allows unequalled benefits to be offered, associating performance of a high level and much reduced fuel consumption:

  • Maximum power of 147 kW (200 hp),
  • 4 wheel drive,
  • 4 driving modes including a 100% electric mode,
  • 95 g/km CO2 for 3.6 l/100 km (78.5 mpg) on the combined cycle.

All of the qualities that contributed to the success of the 508 are of course present in this new model.

Recognisable by a discreet badge on the grille, the HYbrid4 versions retains a streamlined, prestigious and dynamic appearance. On board, the control knob used to select the 4 driving modes (Auto, ZEV, Sport, 4WD), particularly well integrated into the centre console, underlines the high level of perceived quality that characterises the whole 508 range.

The boot, with a volume of 355 litres of water (VDA 210 standard), retains all of its practicality in use, particularly thanks to its rectangular form. With its modularity preserved and 1/3 – 2/3 split folding rear seats, the load capacity can reach close to 1 400 litres when use is made of all of the space in row 2.

Finally, the recognised dynamic qualities of the 508 are increased with the HYbrid4 technology which offers 4 different driving experiences and which makes full use of Peugeot’s suspension know – how (pseudo McPherson at the front and multi-link at the rear).

So the 508 HYbrid 4 distils unique driving pleasure, of a new generation, combining dynamic emotion with environmental requirements.

The 508 HYbrid4 is built at Rennes, in France, and will be on sale in Europe from June. Advanced orders have been taken in Holl and and these amount to nearly1600 orders at mid-June 2012.
