Peugeot 908 Diesel Electric Hybrid

Peugeot 908 Diesel Electric Hybrid


In Frankfurt, the 508 RXH, the HX1 concept and the 908 Hybrid4 which Peugeot Sport is currently developing, are all demonstrations of Peugeot’s pioneering and determined approach to diesel-electric hybridization.

Yet Peugeot’s environmental commitment is being reflected in practice in 2011, through the major advances that the marque is exhibiting in Frankfurt.

Peugeot actively seeks to reduce the CO2 emissions of its vehicle range: the average emissions of the marque’s models were measured in the first half of 2011 at 129.8 g/km CO2 compared to 131.3 in 2010, therefore dropping below the 130 g/km limit set for 2015 by the European Commission.

3008 HYbrid4 - the first Diesel Hybrid in the world

By launching the world’s first diesel hybrid vehicle in the second half of 2011, Peugeot is offering an exclusive range in terms of environmentally-friendly functionality and driving pleasure.

On the 3008 Crossover, the hybridization of a 2.0 HDi FAP diesel engine developing 163 bhp driving the front wheels and an electric motor developing 37 bhp on the rear axle, can reconcile a new driving experience, through four-wheel drive, a maximum output of 200 bhp, a “Zero Emissions Vehicle” mode, and an average fuel consumption of 3.8 l/100 km (74.3 mpg) with 99 g/km CO2), down 35% on an internal combustion engine with a similar power output.

e-HDi, micro-hybrid technology

In the first half of 2011 the 508 and the new 308 launched the e-HDi innovative technology, the new generation STOP & START System, which reduces fuel consumption by nearly 15% in Urban Drive Cycle, prior to its deployment in the second half of the year on the 3008, the 5008 and PARTNER (Van and Tepee).

e-HDi combines the 1.6 l HDi Euro 5 engine and a reversible-alternator which provides the STOP & START System function, supplemented by a braking energy recovery system and hybrid battery that delivers additional power at start-up.

Electric: 2- or 4-wheel drive…

iOn is a latest-generation all-electric city car, designed for business customers and private individuals. The lithium-ion batteries powering the 64 hp electric motor permit a top speed of 130 km/h (80 mph) and a range of 150 km (93 miles). The distinguished recipient of several awards in Europe, iOn has received over 2,000 orders at the end of June 2011.

At the Peugeot stand in Frankfurt, the e-Vivacity scooter is another illustration of the Marque’s response to new expectations in terms of “zero emissions” urban mobility. All-electric, practical and modern, intuitive and nippy; the e-Vivacity offers a range of 60 km (37 miles) and an average energy cost of €0.4/100 km, thanks to its next generation compact lithium-ion batteries.

But for Peugeot, “electricity” can also mean “intensity”. This is how the EX1 concept was born. With two electric motors that give a combined output of 340 hp, four-wheel drive and an extremely aerodynamic and lightweight structure, EX1 is an out-of-the-ordinary two-seater roadster, designed for an intense driving experience.
