First pictures and details of the new Peugeot 508

Peugeot has pulled the wraps off the 508 - the car it hopes will match-up against the Ford Mondeo and Vauxhall Insignia. 

It goes on sale in early 2011 and, as well as a brand new name, benefits from some of Peugeot's most cutting edge technology.

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

All engines - which will be announced later - will benefit from the latest engine technology including Peugeot's new e-HDi stop and start system. Peugeot claims that this is the first of the new generation of stop and start systems which offers improved driveability and economy enhancements of up to 15%.

Buyers will have the option of two bodystyles: a Saloon (with a length of 4.79m) and an SW estate (4.81m).  The public will get a closer look at the car in October at the Paris motorshow. Further details - including the exact engine line-up - are expected to be released then.

The 508 will be produced in Rennes in France, for the European market and in 2011 in China, for the Chinese market.
