Peugeot has unveiled the 508 Sport Engineered, an all-wheel-drive hybrid concept four-door based on the company’s 508 liftback.
Under the bonnet is a 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol engine, which sends 150kW of power to the front wheels. Complementing it is an 82kW electric motor on the front axle, along with another 150kW motor driving the rear wheels to create all-wheel-drive. The combined output may sit at 382kW, but Peugeot says (due to the power delivery of the engine and motors) the authentic maximum power output figure is pegged at around 294kW.
Thanks to the all-wheel-drive system and 500Nm of torque, the 508 PSE can sprint from 0-100km/h in just 4.3 seconds, towards a top speed of 250km/h.
Electricity is sent to the wheels from an 11.8kWh lithium-ion battery pack, which can deliver up to 50km of electric-only driving.
Visually, the PSE concept gets wider front and rear tracks, restyled bumpers with 3D-printed elements, 20-inch alloy wheels, a sporty rear diffuser, fender-mounted aerodynamic winglets, carbon-fibre mirrors, black Peugeot badges, unique Selenium Grey paint, and Kryptonite Green accents on the bumpers and brake calipers.
Inside, Peugeot has installed ‘comfort-fit’ seats wrapped in leather and Alcantara. That Alcantara continues on to the sports steering wheel, automatic gear selector and black headlining. In addition, Kryptonite Green accents can be found on the door handles, dashboard and front seats.
The Peugeot 508 Peugeot Sport Engineered concept will be shown off at the 2019 Geneva motor show, which kicks off from March 5th.
