Peugeot has announced the launch of its new Plug-in Hybrid petrol engine range. The new engines are available for the Peugeot Peugeot 3008 SUV, and all-new Peugeot 508 and 508 SW.
The high voltage Lithium-ion (300V) battery, which comes with new models fitted with Peugeot’s HYBRID and HYBRID4 engines, has a capacity between 11.8 KWh and 13.2KWh, allowing the cars to drive up to 30 miles on a single electric charge.
The vehicle can be recharged in less than 2 hours by using a Wallbox (6.6 kW 32A).
The all-new PEUGEOT 508 HYBRID and 508 SW HYBRID bring together the PureTech 180hp/132kW engine with a 110hp/80kW electric motor for a combined maximum power of 225hp/165kW in traction and optimise fuel efficiency, with less than 49g of CO2 per kilometre.
The PEUGEOT 3008 SUV is being equipped with the HYBRID4 system. This system provides 4-wheel drive with multi-link rear suspension equipped with a 110hp/80kW inverter and reaches the equivalent of 300hp/220kW.
It does 0 to 62mph in 6.5s. The battery capacity is 13.2kWh for a 100% electric range of 30 miles WLTP(2) (60 kilometres NEDC(1)).
The PureTech engine is combined with the new e-EAT8 8-speed automatic transmission (Electric Efficient Automatic Transmission - 8 speeds).
The HYBRID4 engine is only available in a GT version complete with full Mistral black leather with aged grey oak trim.
A few months after its launch, the HYBRID4 version will be joined in the range by a HYBRID version of 225hp (165kW).
The HYBRID and HYBRID4 engines will be integrated into the PEUGEOT 3008 SUV and all-new PEUGEOT 508 and 508 SW model ranges in autumn 2019.
