As a major player in every technological revolution, PEUGEOT is serenely tackling the energy transition with the conviction that technology is still and always at the service of motoring pleasure. Plug-in hybrid technology draws on two sources of energy for getting around: it combines an electric motor with a battery that can be recharged and a petrol engine. Because of this, you benefit from driving in 100% electric mode (up to 42 km WLTP* range) for short journeys and using the combustion engine for long journeys.
PEUGEOT offers a range of plug-in hybrid vehicles with the new 508**, 508 PEUGEOT Sport Engineered** and the PEUGEOT 3008 HYBRID4.
To alternate between the electric and combustion engines, the torque converter of the combustion version gives way to a wet multiplate clutch to offer a 60 Nm increase in torque and greater responsiveness.
ELECTRIC REAR SUSPENSION
On the HYBRID4 version, the multi-link rear axle is equipped with a 110 hp/80 kW electric motor to provide 4-wheel drive, without impacting the interior.
The 1.6L PureTech engine has been adapted, with a starter-alternator and a specific cooling front panel. It develops 200 hp on HYBRID4 versions.
NEW ELECTRIC AUTOMATIC GEARBOX
The PureTech engine is combined with the new e-EAT8 8-speed automatic gearbox. In combination with the gearbox, an electric motor develops 100 hp/ 80 kW on the front axle.
The high-voltage lithium-ion battery (300 V) is located under the rear seats on the HYBRID4 (4WD) version. The battery has a capacity up to 13.2 kWh**. The battery has an 8-year warranty or 160,000 km for 70% of its charge capacity.
In order to optimise CO2 emissions, choose driving in full electric mode for daily urban trips. Electric travel can reach up to 135 km/h before the combustion engine takes over.
The driver can choose to activate a unique Brake function that allows vehicle deceleration without depressing the brake pedal. It also allows the battery to be charged, e.g. when driving downhill. In Drive mode, pressing the Shift and Park by wire automatic gearbox control backwards activates Brake mode.
NEW e-SAVE FUNCTION
With the e-SAVE function, the driver can set an electric energy reserve, to be used when desired. This function can, for example, make it possible to keep a reserve of electrical energy in anticipation of a restricted traffic area.
Accessible from the e-SAVE menu on the touchscreen, simply select the Zero Emission mode on the driving mode selector for 100% electric driving.
The PEUGEOT i-Cockpit® displays driving information in the driver's field of view. It is fully configurable and customisable.
To the right of the digital instrument panel, a powermeter shows 3 zones:
ECO for energy-optimised driving
POWER for more dynamic driving
CHARGE for energy recovery phases
Two gauges are arranged on either side of the instrument panel: one for fuel, the other for electricity. The available range, in km, is indicated below these gauges.
EASY AND INTUITIVE ERGONOMICS
When charging, the digital instrument panel shows you the recovered range, the recovered charge rate, the charge speed and the remaining time for a full recharge.
The touchscreen incorporates a hybrid menu that provides access to:
the energy flow page illustrating the operating status of the hybrid system
