RHX is a new variant of the gorgeous Peugeot 508. Powered by a HYbrid4 diesel-electric system, the car is something between a crossover and an estate.

The all-wheel-drive Peugeot 508 RHX gets the same 2.0 l HDi FAP HYbrid4 drive train as the 3008 hybrid, with 147 kW (200 bhp), and a maximum torque of 450 Nm. In 100% electric mode it is of course emission-free, but even with the diesel unit involved it averages 4.2 l/100 km (70.6 mpg), with emissions of 109 g/km of CO2.

Even better than its powertrain is the car’s looks and functionality. For starters, it’s based on the 508 which is a great looking car, and the jacked-up body makes an interesting vehicle. Not dull like a station wagon but not that big as a SUV either.

It does have some distinctive features that set it apart form the sedan, apart from the back-end of course, including distinctive LED lights visible both at day and night, giving an impression of three vertical ‘lions’ claws on each side of its ‘floating’ grille, the style of which is even more striking.

The interior too benefits from special features with distinctive colours and luxurious materials, like its premium quality interior and upholstery. It also comes with a rich list of features, including Open & Go system, electric front seats, head up display, 18″ wheels, panoramic glass roof, dark-tinted acoustic laminated side windows, latest generation audio and satellite navigation unit, it welcomes its occupants with care, refinement and a high level of comfort.

Peugeot 508 RXH makes its debut at IAA and goes on sale in spring 2012.
