The Peugeot 508 Phev
Located in Wokingham & High Wycombe
Prepare to be moved by the 508 PHEV. Underneath its beautiful body lies a next-generation powertrain, which combines a 1.6 PureTech petrol engine with an 80kW electric motor. The results are spectacular - 225bhp, sports saloon acceleration and the ability to drive on electric power alone for up to 39-miles at speeds of up to 84mph. There are Electric, Sport, Hybrid, and Comfort drive modes so you can tune your 508 PHEV to suit the journey ahead, and there’s a suite of smart features to make your journeys easy. Features like Night Vision infra-red cameras, Full Park Assist which parks for you and a 12.3” head-up digital instrument panel.
The muscular profile of the 508 PHEV is something to behold. It catches the light in interesting ways, making it stand out with sheer elegance. And yet, the interior is arguably even better, with first-rate materials, technologies and a bespoke design.
The plug-in hybrid powertrain is a peach. You can run in hybrid or full EV mode, with average fuel savings of 40% versus the equivalent petrol model. Charging the battery takes less than 2-hours using a standard AC 7.4Kw wall box.
The 508 PHEV is a fastback which means that while it’s shaped like a saloon, the rear tailgate opens upwards with the window. This makes a massive difference to the boot, allowing you to load up and make full use of the 487-litre load volume.
