Peugeot joined the battle of hybrids and presented its new 508 RXH hybrid at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show. The new vehicle represents Peugeot’s next step into the world of green technologies and continues the road opened by its predecessors.

The 508 RHX is based on the 508 touring and is equipped with a hybrid system which consists of a 2.0 liter HDi engine paired with a 38 hp electric motor, offering a total output of 200 hp.

The car is pretty hard to be put in a distinct category as is basically a hybrid estate with the abilities of an SUV which puts it on the same line with models like the Audi A4 Allroad or Volkswagen Passat Alltrack.

The new Peugeot 508 RXH was designed for those who search for a green vehicle but aren’t ready to sacrifice space, comfort and utility.

2018 Peugeot 508

The Next-gen 508 is getting ready for its introduction in 2018

The new Peugeot 508 is finally here, and boy is it something else. It comes to market with an all-new look that shifts it from the boring sedan marketplace to a place where the worlds greatest sports sedans call home. Peugeot dropped the roof, dropped the length, and made this thing a true four-door coupe. It’s stylish and sexy but comes with loads of intelligent safety features and the choice of six engines that range anywhere between 130 and 225 horsepower. Those figures may not be on the right side of impressive, but we’re talking about an economically priced vehicle, not something that wears a BMW or Audi badge, right?

2011 Peugeot 508 RXH

2011 Peugeot 508 RXH

After introducing its sedan and station wagon models, Peugeot has unveiled the new 508 RXH a few months before the SUV’s official debut at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show in September.

This new model combines a 2.0-liter HDi engine with a 38 HP electric motor for a total output of 200 HP and CO2 emissions of just 109 g/km. The car’s diesel-electric HYbrid4 - as found in Peugeot’s 3008 Hybrid4 - will deliver a total of 208 HP and a peak torque of 331 lbs-ft. It will be combined with a four-wheel drive system and will deliver a fuel economy of 67.2 mpg.

Peugeot has refined the 508 model by widening and raising it to create a smooth and refined SUV. It will be distinguished by LED lights that are visible during the day and night, and "give an impression of three vertical ’lion claws’. The new SUV will also feature a line of distinctive colors and luxurious materials, like the premium quality interior and upholstery.

The fancy aspect will also be covered with a range of technology outfitted for the 508 RXH. The model will be equipped with an Open & Go Keyless system, electric front seats, a head up display, 18" wheels, a panoramic glass roof, dark-tinted acoustic laminated side windows, and the latest generation audio and satellite navigation units.

The 508 RXH will be unveiled as a world premiere at the Frankfurt International Motor Show in September 2011, and will be on sale in Spring 2012.
