An intelligent engine
The front-wheel drive diesel engine runs optimally when on road trips.
For urban trips when the vehicle is started or is cruising in low-gear speed the electrical engine takes over.
With the Stop&Start system, which sets the heat engine to stand-by mode then automatically restarts it, the HYbrid4 offers zero-emission mode driving.
An easy-to-use knob on the console allows the driver to choose between 4 different modes:
- "Auto" mode, which manages the system automatically,
- "Zero-Emission Vehicle" mode for 100% electrical driving,
- "4-Wheel Drive" mode for intensified road-hold on difficult surfaces,
- "Sports" mode for dynamic driving.
The last two driving modes use the electrical and diesel engines simultaneously. This technology is available on the PEUGEOT 508 RXH.
Four Driving Modes
A selector wheel on the central console allows the driver to choose between four different driving modes: "ZEV", "4WD" (4-wheel drive), Auto and Sport. Combining performance and control, the 508 RXH offers the driver unique dynamism and simplicity of use.
