Peugeot reveals 508 SW estate in Paris

Would you like to stay up to date with the latest from The Car Expert?

Peugeot has unveiled a new estate variant of the striking 508 saloon today at the 2018 Paris motor show, which is now available to order.

The initial release of the 508 SW will include a limited First Edition model, which will feature extra styling cues such as gloss black grille and unique 19-inch alloy wheels.

UK buyers will have the pick of two colours for First Edition cars: Twilight Blue and Amazonite Grey. The interior will have black roof lining and blue ambient mood lighting, as well as aluminium door sills and pedals.

The boot floor will be lined with a Zebrano wood finish with anti-slip bars. In terms of gadgets, you can expect to find much of the same equipment as the saloon. Engine choice for the First Edition comprises a 1.6-litre 225hp petrol engine or a 2.0-litre 180hp diesel.

Hybrid power on its way

Two plug-in hybrid options will be available from autumn 2019, in either two-wheel drive or four-wheel drive versions. The plug-in hybrid powertrain combines an 180hp petrol engine with a 300-volt battery with a capacity between 11.8kWh and 13.2 kWh. This will allow the 508 SW to drive for up to 30 miles on a single electric charge.

   

Peugeot claims to have enhanced energy conservation through features such as a braking system that conserves power as the car brakes or slows down and predictive electrical deployment based on satnav programming.

Fast charging allows the battery to be recharged in around two hours, and Peugeot claims emissions outputs as low as 49g/km of CO2.

The plug-in hybrid powertrains will only be available for the top-spec GT models of the 508SW and saloon, and will arrive in the autumn of 2019.
