Peugeot has unveiled a four-wheel drive 308 R hatchback model, equipped with a plug-in petrol hybrid unit boasting 500bhp, but its not a concept car, it's for future production.

A nice surprise from Peugeot this morning, the 308 R is out. The hybrid car that can be recharged in 30 minutes goes from 0-100kph is four seconds. It also has four-wheel drive and is widened by 80mm giving it a really aggressive look.

Peugeot are saying that this is a finished car for "future production" meaning it isn't a concept and we'll see it on the road at some stage. It looks like Peugeot will be battling is out with Volkswagen and their Golf R but then we love it when a fight breaks out, we'll be hearing a lot more about the 308R throughout 2015 and hopefully we'll be driving it really soon.
