Peugeot 308 R HYbrid concept
The Peugeot 308 HYbrid concept is a performance plug-in hybrid hatchback. Its powertrain comprises the 1.6-litre THP 270 S&S petrol engine and two electric motors, which together produce 500 hp and 730 Nm of torque. 0-100 is clocked in under 4.0 seconds, and the car has an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h.
Using only electric power, the car can touch a speed of 100 km/h. Despite such astounding performance figures, the performance car's CO2 emission is just 70 g/km.
