Peugeot has revealed more details of the plug-in hybrid version of its 508 upper-medium car.
Available as a fastback or SW estate, the powertrain will pair a 180hp petrol engine with a 110hp electric motor, with a combined system output of 225hp.
An 11.8kWh battery is fitted, which Peugeot says delivers a pure electric driving range of up to 33 miles in the fastback and 32 miles in the estate.
It can be recharged in less than two hours by an optional onboard 7kW charger.
Official WLTP fuel economy for both bodystyles is 217mpg, while CO2 emissions figures are 29g/km for the fastback and 30g/km for the estate.
Peugeot says that the installation of the hybrid battery does not mean a reduction in boot space, which is the same for both models as it is with the conventionally-powered range.
Three equipment grades will be available: Allure, GT Line and GT.
Available safety technology will include adaptive cruise control, lane positioning assist and Peugeot's infrared Night Vision system.
Orders will open later this year.
