Shock 493bhp Peugeot 308 R HYbrid set to get the green light

Peugeot’s extreme 308 Hybrid R concept car could become reality according to Peugeot boss Maxim Picat. Speaking to Auto Express at the unveiling of the Hybrid R at the Shanghai Motor Show, Picat said: “We are quite well developed with the car and we’re now in the process of commercialising it.”

Assuming Peugeot can make the business case stack up, we could see the car on the road within the next four years, when the first plug-in hybrids will appear across the Peugeot, Citroen and DS families.
