The 508 RXH offers a ZEV 100% electric mode, suitable for driving in town and for reducing consumption in the combined cycle to less than 4.2 L/100 km (56 mpg US), with emissions of 109 g/km of CO2.

The 508 RXH will be unveiled as a world premiere at the Frankfurt International Motor Show in September 2011, and will go on sale in spring 2012. Peugeot plans to extend the HYbrid4 technology to other models.
