About this his twitter said the head of the company Jean-Philippe Imparato

The head of Peugeot, Jean-Philippe Impparato, posted on his twitter a teaser for a hybrid sports car, which was first talked about last October. A message with a hint of a quick presentation of the model also appeared in the official brand account.

No details about the new product are reported, although earlier Imparato stated that the R-version 508 Hybrid with a power unit with a capacity of more than 300 horsepower could become the firstborn of the line of electrified sports cars. Among other versions: the “charged” version of the 208th and the pre-production prototype e-Legend.

According to preliminary information, “R” will be equipped with a Hybrid4 power unit from the 3008th with a 1.6-liter turbo engine and two electric motors. “Charged” Peugeot 508 will receive four-wheel drive and can accelerate to one hundred kilometers per hour in 4.5 seconds.

It is known that the development of sports cars will be engaged in the division of Peugeot Sport. The brand management considered that it was necessary to concentrate all efforts on the new lineup and decided to leave the World Rally Cross Championship (WRX).
