Last year, the Groupe PSA revealed its plan to electrify all models from 2019, which precisely indicated that every vehicle made by Peugeot, Citroën, DS, Vauxhall, and Opel would be electrified as part of the group’s plan for clean mobility. So, the news of the 508 Sport Engineered’s about-to-happen production is a significant mark in the company's electrification plan.

Speaking about the 508 Sport Engineered Concept, the vehicle is heavily furnished with sporty fits and comes with revamped aerodynamics. The new super sedan is covered with a specially designed Selenium Grey paint that can change to different colors under different lighting conditions. The LED units are canine-shaped and run beside the headlamps. Furthermore, the front gets a reprofiled apron with a 3D-printed valance, which allows channelling of air into the radiator.

On the other hand, the aerodynamics is tweaked with new flaps on the subframe, and tiny winglets feature on the quarter panel to reduce air resistance.

The interior comes with leather/Alcantara sports seats that are stitched with contrast Kryptonite, asymmetrical tightly packed steering wheel. It also gets a fully digital Sport Engineered-themed 12.3-inch instrument panel, as well as an “all Kryptonite” 10-inch high-resolution touchscreen infotainment display.
