Peugeot 3008 HYbrid4 now available with even lower CO2 emissions

Article by Christian A., on September 13, 2012

The CO2 emissions level of the Peugeot 3008 HYbrid4 has been lowered to only 91g/km. This is the first full hybrid diesel-electric crossover to be built. Peugeot, which pioneered the HYbrid4 technology, continues to break ground by making its drive train even more environmentally friendly. The front wheels are powered by the HDi 163 diesel while the rear wheels are being moved by a 37bhp electric motor.

This essentially combines 200bhp, four-wheel drive, with Auto, Sport and ZEV modes. Peugeot has developed three full hybrid diesel models (3008 HYbrid4, 508 RXH and 508 Saloon HYbrid4) in the Peugeot lineup. Its engineers now make use of this experience by continuing to enhance the technology and by naming aspects that lead to further optimization.

Peugeot has made improvements as well as developed new management software for the engines. The stages of energy recovery and the handling of the batteries were optimized by these modifications. This led to improvements in CO2 emissions and fuel efficiency. These benefits would be more noticeable in an urban driving setting. Presently, the 3008 HYbrid4 is type-approved on the combined cycle at 91g/km.

The potential for 80.7mpg for the version is equipped with very low rolling resistance Energy Saving 16’’ tires. The models come in other tire sizes (16’’ M+S (‘Mud & Snow’), 17’’ or 18’’). Their CO2 emissions level has been cut to 99g/km. Company car users and operators benefit considerably from the three HYbrid4 models as they offer the most optimum environmental and fiscal position.

HYbrid4 vehicles, with the on-demand driving modes (ZEV, 4WD, Auto & Sport), offer low CO2 emissions and imressive fuel economy. But at the same time, they offer low BIK (Benefit In Kind) taxation (with 10% for the 3008 HYbrid4 & 508 Saloon HYbrid4 and 12% for the 508 RXH). Companies would benefit from the 100% Capital Write Down Allowance during the first year.
