Following the introduction of the RC... concept, Peugeot is showing off the Prologue, a new concept using a hybrid architecture. Although Peugeot says that it defies all classifications, it's likely to be the base for the future 3008, a compact crossover that would fight against the Nissan Qashqai and the Volkswagen Tiguan. Currently, the only SUV available at Peugeot dealers is a Mitsubishi Outlander clone, called 4007. For the record, the 308 is Peugeot's subcompact, and the 407 is the Lion's marque sedan.

Based on the platform of the Citroën C4 Picasso, the Prologue uses a claimed "new generation" hybrid powertrain which gets 200hp and produces 109 g/km of CO 2 for the European mixed driving cycle and 0 g/km when running exclusively on electrons. Could it be a plug-in hybrid?
