The next generation Peugeot 508, expected to launch in 2017, will be the first PSA Group car to be sold with autonomous driving features.
Last year, the French car firm announced it was considering replacing the 508 saloon with two new body styles - one dynamic model and one practical, spacious model - similar to that adopted by Mercedes-Benz, with its coupe-like Mercedes-Benz CLS and E Class.
“We are working on the technology, and the 508 will showcase our first steps with it. The wisdom of autonomous features is that they give you back time - the rarest resource we have today.
"For a daily that spends two hours at the weekends returning from the country, it could transform their journey, turning it from a source of frustration to quality time. The possibility for it to improve our lives is there," Tavares said.
