• Peugeot RC concept previews the next 408

Peugeot unveiled at the Paris Auto Show the RC HYmotion4, that according to AutoExpress previews the next generation of the mid-size 408. If this is true, earlier reports of the 407’s replacement looking only like a minor facelift will be dead wrong.

The RC concept uses a 1.6-liter THP turbo at the rear and a 70KW electric motor at the front. Although this is a functioning design study, the first engines available in the 408 will likely be more conventional.

If the 408 does take its cues heavily from the RC concept, then that may cause enough excitement to have North America ask Peugeot to return. Then again, there may be some forgiveness that needs to happen first.
