The Nissan Qahqai was a huge success and it looks like Peugeot is working on a new crossover that will compete the Japanese. Codenamed T84, the new crossover will be based on the Prologue concept and will most likely get the 3008 name. According to Auto Express, the two-wheel-drive 3008 will go on sale next year, followed by an AWD version in 2011. While, at its debut, the 3008 will be available with a range of diesel and petrol engines, it seems that the 2011 model will have a hybrid powertrain, delivering 197 hp and 109g/km of CO2 emissions. More details will be available next year, closer to launch date, but rumors say that the car will have a starting price £1,000 (around $1,500) higher than the equivalent 308 hatchback.

Today Peugeot announced the Prologue, that will probably make its debut at next month’s Paris Motor Show. We say that because the French carmaker was pretty tight with details in the press release. All they say is that the concept is built on a hybrid powertrain, that delivers 200 hp (147 kW) and 109 g/km CO2 emissions in the combined cycle and zero in electric only mode.

Derived from the fusion of different worlds, the “ PROLOGUE… ” concept car lifts a corner of the veil on a new type of vehicle. Anticipating future trends, the “ PROLOGUE… ” proposes an innovative combination of ideas at a number of different levels: its architecture, its style, its interior ambience, its modularity, its original high-tech equipment and also its new generation hybrid technology. In fact, thanks to this technology, this 147kW (200 bhp) car offers unexpected levels of performance combined with signi?cantly reduced CO2 emissions: 109 g/km in the combined cycle, or zero in electric only mode!
