Peugeot has revealed more details of its 508 RXH, the flagship model for the 508 range.
The 508 RXH is based on the SW estate and will make its public debut at the Frankfurt motor show next month. It has four-wheel drive as standard and is powered by a hybrid system that combines a 161bhp 2.0-litre diesel engine with a 36bhp electric motor.
The combined power output is 197bhp. Power from the diesel engine goes to the front wheels, while the electric motor drives the rear wheels. Up to 221lb ft of torque can be sent to the front wheels, while 148lb ft can be sent to the rear. Maximum combined torque is 332lb ft.
There are four driving modes – ‘Auto’, ‘Zero Emissions Vehicle (ZEV)’, ‘4WD and ‘Sport’. In ZEV mode the car can operate solely on electric power for short journeys. There’s a semi-auto gearbox, with the option of sequential manual shifts.
