This new age crossover offers a feline stance and unique allure, engineering excellence focused on efficiency, and cutting-edge technologies dedicated to driving pleasure and instinctive use.

To be sold as a Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV), the 408 will offer a total of 165kW of power from its 132kW PureTech engine and 81kW electric motor. It will feature the latest generation i-Cockpit too.

Instantly recognisable by its compact steering wheel dedicated to driving pleasure and controlled agility, it’s truly one of the most unique driving experiences on offer from any car maker, the world over.

“It is with great excitement that we announce the impending arrival and opening of expressions of interest for the PEUGEOT 408,” Peugeot Australia managing director Kate Gillis said.

“2023 is a momentous year for the brand locally as we continue to introduce electrified variants across Passenger, SUV and LCV segments,” she added.

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

Further details regarding Australian specifications and pricing will be announced closer to its launch, but interested customers are encouraged to register their interest via their nearest dealership, or online.
