The latest plug-in hybrid additions to the PEUGEOT range, all-new PEUGEOT 508 HYBRID and 508 SW HYBRID, will provide fuel efficiency of up to 217mpg and CO2 emissions as low as 29g/km when order books open later this year. They are capable of more than 30 miles of serene, fully-electric driving.

The new large family cars have passed WLTP certification to confirm the impressive figures, before joining PEUGEOT’s growing plug-in electric hybrid and fully electric vehicle range. The all-new 508 HYBRID and 508 SW HYBRID combine the 132kW (180hp) 1.6L PureTech petrol engine with an 80kW (110hp) electric motor on the front axle, for a total power output of 165kW (225hp).

Both models use an 11.8kWh battery, with a full recharge taking less than two hours with a 7kW on board charger (optional depending on version). According to official WLTP tests, the 508 HYBRID returns 217mpg, with ultra-low CO2 emissions of just 29g/km, while the 508 SW HYBRID will achieve the same fuel economy with CO2 emissions of 30g/km. 

Each 508 HYBRID and 508 SW HYBRID will be available with four driving modes:

  • ZERO EMISSIONS: 100% electric drive for a maximum range of 33 miles* in the 508 HYBRID and 32 miles** in the 508 SW HYBRID
  • SPORT: Combines the power from both the 132kW 1.6L PureTech petrol engine and the 80kW electric motor for maximum performance
  • HYBRID: Switches between electric and engine power for optimised efficiency
  • COMFORT: Combines HYBRID mode with a softer suspension configuration for improved ride comfort

With ultra-low CO2 emissions of 29g/km Ŧ and 30g/km Ŧ Ŧ, the all-new 508 HYBRID and 508 SW HYBRID benefit from the lowest Benefit-in-Kind (BIK) rate for business and fleet users. Both models attract a BIK rating of only 10% from April 2020***. 

Both the all-new 508 HYBRID and 508 SW HYBRID are built on PEUGEOT’s EMP2 platform. Through clever engineering of the battery pack, PEUGEOT has achieved zero compromise in boot space or versatility compared to conventional 508 and 508 SW models. The all-new 508 HYBRID comes with 487-litres of boot space, with the 508 SW HYBRID providing 530-litres of load capacity.

David Peel, Managing Director of PEUGEOT UK, said: “PEUGEOT is rapidly embracing an electric future. The all-new 508 HYBRID and 508 SW HYBRID will join our growing line-up of plug-in electric hybrid and fully electric models, including the all-new 3008 SUV GT HYBRID4 and the e-208 and e-2008 SUV. This is an exciting time for PEUGEOT as the brand works to fulfil its philosophy of ‘choose your PEUGEOT, choose your powertrain’ where customers can choose between conventional petrol and diesel models as well as electrified variants, which will apply to all models within the range by 2023.”

The all-new 508 HYBRID and all-new 508 SW HYBRID will be available in three trim options:

  • Allure
