Peugeot's diesel-electric HYbrid4 technology is now available with a third body style in the 508's range as after the crossover and station wagon models, the moniker has now been applied to the sedan variant.
Like its two other siblings, the 508 Hybrid4 makes use of a 2.0-litre HDi diesel engine delivering 161hp (163PS) that powers the front wheels and a 36hp (37PS) electric motor driving the rear wheels.
The system produces a combined output of 197hp (200PS) and offers a choice of four driving modes including 100 percent electric (ZEV), 4WD, Auto and Sport that can be selected through a four-way rotary switch on the centre console.
According to the French manufacturer, the 508 Hybrid4 Sedan returns a combined fuel consumption of just 3.6lt/100km (65.3mpg US or 78.5mpg UK) with corresponding CoO2 emissions of only 95g/km.
It can reach 100km/h (62mph) from standstill in 9.0 seconds and continue to accelerate until 209km/h (130mph).
The Hybrid4 models can be recognized only through a discreet badge on the front grille.
The addition of the electric motor at the rear comes with a penalty in boot space as the Hybrid4 model has 355 litres compared to the standard model's 515 litres.
In the UK, the 508 Hybrid4 saloon is priced at £31,450 with the first cars to arrive in showrooms in July.
