Peugeot has officially revealed the all-new 308 R HYbrid concept at the 2015 Shanghai Motor Show. This is for the first time when we have the chance to see the French prototype in flesh and bones.

As you may have read, the Peugeot 308 R HYbrid re-imagines design cues explored on the Quartz concept and features a lot of aggressive exterior.

Under the hood of the Peugeot 308 R HYbrid is a hybrid powertrain that can offer an astonishing 500 horsepower and 730 Nm peak of torque. The unit combines three sources of power, each capable of moving the vehicle independently of the others. We are talking about a 1.6 liter THP motor and about two electric motors rated at 115 horsepower.

According to the French car manufacturer, the prototype can run from stand still to 100 km/h in just 4 seconds, while the top speed was capped at 250 km/h. It features 4 different driving modes, each one tailored to specific uses. The braking system is on a par with the car’s performance, with 380mm ventilated discs at the front, gripped by four pistons, and 290mm discs to the rear.
