The German monthly Autobild Allrad, the leading European motoring magazine specialised in all-wheel drives, has given its Allrad Innovation des Jahres ("All wheel-drive innovation of the year") prize to the Peugeot 3008 HYbrid4.

For ten years, Autobild Allrad has organised its annual awards which reward, by category, passenger cars with four-wheel drive launched in the course of the past year, as well as an Innovation Prize. The special Innovation Prize given out by the editorial team of Autobild Allrad in association with the manufacturer Goodyear, was awarded on 24 March to the Peugeot 3008 HYbrid4.

This is the first time the award has gone to technology developed by a French automaker. For the magazine's editorial team, "this year, the prize has gone to the 3008 HYbrid4 as the first mass-produced vehicle in the world to offer an efficient combination of a diesel engine and electric propulsion. The architecture of the diesel and electric engines split between two axles and the lower consumption represent an advance for auto technology".

By launching the first diesel hybrid vehicle in the world as early as summer 2011, Peugeot has successfully developed an original offering in terms of environmental services and all-round driveability. On the 3008, the hybridization of a diesel engine (2.0 HDi FAP of 120kW) driving the front wheel axle and an electric motor with an output of 27kW on the rear wheel axle, results in four-wheel drive, maximum total power of 147kW, a "zero emission" mode and standardised average consumption from as low as 3.8 l/100 km. The new driving pleasure comes with CO2 emissions of just 99 g/km, a reduction of 35% compared to a combustion engine of similar power.

Peugeot Australia is keen to add the 3008HYbrid4 to augment the existing 3008 range and is working towards a local launch early in 2012.
