New Peugeot 308 Rumored To Go After VW Golf R With 300-HP Hybrid

It won't arrive before 2022.

The Peugeot 308 was refreshed exactly three years ago but is now starting to show its age. What's even more important, the crowded C-segment in Europe is full of newer and more attractive models these days, like the new Volkswagen Golf, Skoda Octavia, SEAT Leon, Ford Focus, and more. This means the French company needs to act quickly and launch a new generation of its hatchback - and according to a new report, this should happen towards the end of next year or in early 2022.

Autocar claims big changes are in the cards for the model. It will be based on an updated version of PSA's EMP2 platform, which also underpins the current generation 308. The regular versions of the vehicle will receive electrified and more efficient powertrains, but the word of a hybridized performance variant is what really caught our attention.

As far as the regular models are concerned, Peugeot is expected to continue offering traditional gasoline and diesel engines. An all-electric 308 is reportedly also in the cards for a later launch, but nothing has been confirmed so far.
