The Peugeot 308 turbodiesel-electric hybrid will not be available to Australian buyers until 2009.

The hybrid will spearhead the 308 range when it is launched at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September. The petrol and turbodiesel models will arrive here next March after being unveiled at the Melbourne Motor Show.

Peugeot Automobiles Australia spokesman Mathew McAuley says the 1.6-litre HDi hybrid is 30 per cent more fuel-efficient and delivers 30 per cent lower CO2 emissions than a petrol-electric hybrid.
