The Peugeot 508 GT Fastback Plug-In Hybrid lists for $76,990. That makes it the most expensive in the line-up with Peugeot asking about $17,000 more for this hybrid than the petrol-only version of the 508 GT Fastback.
It’s a lot of money to ask when you consider you’re getting pretty much exactly the same standard features.
Coming standard is a 10-inch media display, a 12.4-inch digital instrument cluster, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, digital radio, sat nav, a 10-speaker Focal stereo, dual-zone climate control, power adjustable and heated front seats, and leather upholstery.
There’s also 18-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights and running lights, adaptive cruise control, front and rear parking sensors, auto parking, a proximity key, and tinted rear windows.
The Peugeot 508 GT Fastback Plug-In Hybrid doesn’t have many direct rivals in Australia. Kia’s Stinger is only available with a petrol engine but costs about the same amount of money.
The Lexus ES Hybrid isn’t the plug-in type, but it could be a good alternative, and the top-of-the-range version is less than $79K.
