First Details About Peugeot 508 RXH Hybrid Crossover

It Features a 200 Hp Powertrain and Will Make Its Official Debut in September, at the Frankfurt Motor Show

Peugeot has just unveiled the first details about their upcoming Peugeot 508 RXH, the diesel-hybrid version off-road version of the Peugeot 508 SW. The new model features the Hybrid4 powertrain and all-wheel-drive, while CO2 emissions are amazingly low, only 109 grams per kilometer. The new 508 RXH also features an all-electric mode, which allows the car to run for a certain amount of time and miles (not disclosed so far) with zero CO2 emissions, being powered only by the electric motor under the bonnet.

The new Peugeut 508 RXH is the second car to feature the Hybrid4 powertrain and according to the French carmaker the estimated fuel consumption will be as low as 4.2 liters per 100 km (67.2 UK mpg) on the combined cycle. All these sound great, especially considered the powertrain produces a total power output of 200 hp and maximum torque of 450 Nm, from a 2.0 liter HDI engine that produces 163 hp / 300 Nm of torque and powers the front wheels and a 37 hp / 150 Nm electric motor that powers the rear wheels. As for the features offered to customers, the new car from Peugeot will come with an impressive list of standard features including keyless entry, electric adjustable and heated front seats, head-up display, 18-inch alloy wheels, panoramic glass sunroof and high-end sound system and navigation.

Looking at the exterior, the model stands out with an increased ride height and wheelbase, plus several modified body kit elements to highlight the car’s off-road appetite. Other new features that stand out are the LED daytime running lights integrated in the front bumper, which are on both day and night and which, according to the French carmaker, are shaped like a lion ready to bite its prey. Well, it’s a little funny but a metaphor every once in a while doesn’t hurt.


The Peugeot 508 RXH’s official debut is scheduled for this September, at the Frankfurt Motor Show, while market launch is scheduled for Spring 2012. In order to highlight its premium qualities, the car will be available in a range of special paint options and quality materials for the interiors. And the 508 RXH will need these features, considering it enters the realm of the Audi A4 Allroad, so it has to reach a pretty high standard regarding the material quality and the technical specs, especially since it will probably be priced at about the same amount.
