Peugeot's Hybrid4-powered 508 RXH crossover has proved a popular offering in the European market, with all 300 units selling out in just three days.

The high-riding 508's success in Europe has moved Peugeot Australia to push its case for a local debut, confirming today that a third quarter 2012 launch is possible.

Entering as the second diesel-electric hybrid in the Peugeot range, the 508 RXH is driven at the front wheels by a 120kW 2.0 litre HDi FAP diesel engine, paired with a 28kW electric motor driving the rear wheels.

Thanks to its hybrid powertrain, the 508 RXH lists combined-cycle fuel consumption figures of 4.2 l/100km - bettering the 5.7 l/100km offered by the diesel engine in its regular non-hybrid guise.

On the styling front, the RXH gets a unique colour-coded version of Peugeot's new dual-port grille design, along with a revised front bumper with three columns of LED lights at each end.

To reflect its softroader off-road intent, the 508 RXH also gets wheelarch extensions and skirting in a gunmetal finish, and chrome roof rails.

“With the introduction of the micro-hybrid at the end of October Peugeot is continuing its diesel evolution, taking the company and our customers another step closer to achieving that fine balance between personal mobility and environmental responsibility,” Peugeot Australia National Marketing Manager Richard Grant said.

“We’re looking forward to the future, and obviously many of our customers are too.”

Local pricing won't be revealed until the 508 RXH's (possible) late 2012 launch draws closer, but expect Australian models to be priced between the Subaru Outback ($38,490-$55,990) and the Audi A6 Allroad ($103,714).
