    Iím going to bypass that complexity and go direct to a Kona/Niro type; initially as a second car and Ďfinallyí as the sole one.
    It seems PSA will be late to the party, AGAIN, out here at least.

    Peugeot 308 Plug in Hybrid, 400HP, guess it needs a business case to be available in Australia, as they have been available in Europe for decades. https://www.facebook.com/PeugeotAU/v...9900570821896/

    Yes Youtube same video of the Peugeot 508 Plugin Hybrid 400hp: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=90Tq6kgHQPU

    There is a new Peugeot 208 (2020) attached similar style to the 508: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mo52Cu496s8

    The Geneva International Motor-show is the release for the 508 Hybrid 400hp and the new 208 & E208 production cars. There is a lot on Facebook etc but they do hint of another 208 model which is probably the 208GTI (A two door may be too much to ask, but could be a concept?). The wife has commented she wants the new 208, whether E or ICE? Sold at first sight! What a gorgeous car and includes retro 205 styling to hopefully keep the Korean copyist away. The 308 on release was copied immediately by Kia, but this new 208 seems just perfect at all angles including the new generation I-Cockpit 3D.

    The 208-e is looks great. I can't help but think it should have been called the 208 LiON

    One of a number of PSA vehicles that ought be displayed in the big shopping malls because the vast majority of Aussies havenít a clue where a retailer is located.
    Theyíd be amazed with a 208/2008/308/3008/Aircross range.

    We would regularly put the latest stuff at our local Westfield until it got to expensive.

    What I don't like about the new 208 is the dark coloured guard extensions, that at a glance make it seem the wheel gap is enormous. Those should be painted body colour, if they're there at all.

    I'll be picking up a brand new 208 in just under two months, but it'll likely be the old body. It's for a 1 month European trip - can't bring it home.

    The mall in America are in serious decline in certain areas AFAIK.
    Not sure how theyíre going here, but plenty of small shops closing.
    If they want to increase foot traffic and add a bit of glam, maybe....

    I think you will find foot traffic is up but spending isnít

    They both look like complete rubbish to me. Indistinguishable from a Ford or a Mazda or a Hyundai. There's nothing to write home about and frankly I'd rather have a Honda. I couldn't even fit a couple of guitars in the boot of that poxy 208. I suppose fascism must render everything as close to identical as possible in a coming world where individuality will not be allowed. What a boring world we are inventing!

    You need to get away from that wood glue for a while.

    If Honda hadnít become so bland and utterly conservative Iíd agree there was merit in your argument.
    They used to lead in the 70s but now they are slow followers.

    Well seen as though your cars are not current models I guess you arenít the target market

    I should have said'and I hate Hondas' but I left that as understood.
    No I am definitely not the target market.
    All I'm saying is the styling has become absolutely bland which is terribly boring.
    But then sometimes it's good to disappear into the crowd while under the bonnet there's a surprise or two for that odd moment when you might use it. Combined with Peugeot handling the blandness matters less because you're not looking at yourself while hooning through the corners leaving all the other bland little cars in your wake. Much better if nobody sees you in the grey uniform blob though mister plod will never miss you.
    Wood glue is marvellous stuff.

    That would erode the mindshare that PSA otherwise retain through the Commodore:

    Iím not sure what you mean.
    The general public donít know anything about a link between Commodore and PSA.........at this stage AFAIK.
    Hahaha - pickled up some bed frames today and drew much interest about this (apparently) unique vehicle. They didnít have a clue what it was. Sime Darby did a brilliant job of keeping it a secret.
