Plugin pack for 408 fastback

Riley Riley

Peugeot is producing some of the most stylish cars available and the 408 Fastback is one of them.

Arriving later this year, it follows close on th eheels of the Citroen C5 X with which it shares a platform.

The 408 also shared the same headlights, taillights, and dashboard design as the third-generation 308, which was developed alongside it.

Described as a coupe crossover, the fastback design cuts an eye-catching silhouette.

The 408 will be offered as a single powerful plug-in hybrid version in Australia.

The hybrid petrol-electric powertrain is paired with an 8-speed automatic gearbox and produces a combined 165kW of power, with a 132kW PureTech petrol engine combined with an 81kW electric motor.

A battery electric model called the e-408 is set to follow, either this year or next year.

In addition, 408 features the latest generation of Peugeot i-Cockpit, instantly recognisable by its compact steering wheel dedicated to driving pleasure and controlled agility.

Peugeot’s Kate Gillis said that 2023 is a momentous year for the brand locally as it continued to introduce electrified variants across Passenger, SUV and LCV segments.

“Aligning to our electrification journey, the dynamic Peugeot 408 will launch in a single powerful plug-in hybrid variant in Australia,” she said.

“We strongly believe the captivating design excellence of the new 408, combined with the intelligent plug-in hybrid powertrain, will attract discerning local customers.”
