Fresh-faced Peugeot 508 coming to NZ next year

The new Peugeot 508 will be coming to New Zealand next year and will bring with it the French marque’s new design look. The 508 will retain many of the styling features first unveiled on the SR1 Concept Car.

Combining sharp design with cutting-edge technology, quality, purity and efficiency have been the watchwords that Peugeot designers and engineers used during the creation of the 508.

The exterior design is full of ‘French chic’ and the interior of the car combines hi-tech with the use of high quality materials both visually and to the touch.

In line with Peugeot’s strategy to produce vehicles that emit low levels of CO2 and optimise fuel efficiency, the 508 has been designed to optimise the performance of its engines, enhance environmental efficiency, reduce weight and improve aerodynamics.

The Peugeot 508 will be powered by a range of engines with  all engines benefitting from the latest engine technology including Peugeot’s new e-HDi stop and start system. This is the first of the new generation of stop and start systems which offers improved driveability and economy enhancements of up to 15%.

After launch, Peugeot’s HYbrid4 technology will become available on the 508 and will produce 200bhp with all-wheel drive and emissions of 99g/km of CO2 or zero in electric mode.

The Peugeot 508 will be available in two body styles: a Sedan (with a length of 4.79 m) and a SW (4.81 m).  Both models will be revealed to the public in October at the Paris Motor Show, and will go on sale at the beginning of 2011.

The Peugeot 508 will be available in New Zealand in April/May 2011 and pricing will be advised closer to launch.
