The ongoing electrification phase resulted in different circumstances for different carmakers. Some manufacturers are benefiting from it even if they were not doing that good with the combustion-engined vehicles and some have failed to gain benefit from it even though they were having success with the traditional vehicles. The Peugeot is an example of the former case. And if you want to know why we are saying this you should only study the latest Peugeot 508 PSE SW.
As we said the electrification has had different impacts on different manufacturers. For Mercedes, it meant replacing the V8 in the most popular vehicle with a four-cylinder hybrid and this was inevitable even if they or their customers hated it. But for Peugeot, it was different as they were able to take the existing four-cylinder models and explore a new area of extreme performance and fun. And it really turned out to be good for them.
You can put this brand in line with Volkswagen’s R or even AMG, but it adopts a unique approach of applying electrification front and center. It offers a range of performance plug-in hybrids.
The company has taken a very effective, clever and, economic economical approach, which will benefit them and their customers. The most important thing for the company is that with this vehicle they have found their handling Mojo and it’s with a vehicle which will not be affected by emission rules, at least not in the next few years.
The vehicle offers good right ride quality as well, both on the motorway and B-roads. It’s an interesting and versatile model that offers both comfort and entertainment. It is quick too, not as much as some of the competitors, but good enough to entertain you. So, we believe if you purchase this vehicle you would like it very much.
