This is the Peugeot 208 Hybrid FE Concept that’s was introduced at the IAA in Frankfurt. There are reports that the concept’s weight is lower than the base 1.0-liter VTi version (with a weight of 2,149 lbs (975 kg) by 440 lbs (200 kg). The Peugeot 208 Hybrid FE Concept has differences from the regular car.

It features a rear diffuser to boost the air flow, a set of aero-optimized 19-inch alloy wheels covered in narrow tires, together with cameras that took the place of the conventional exterior mirrors. The two suspensions include a fiber glass "blade" that functions as a wishbone, with a spring and anti-roll bar combined, saving 20kg.

The hybrid module (which includes a 90-cell lithium-ion battery pack) is adapted from the 908 Hybrid 4 Le Mans and offers 40 bhp (30 kW) that’s delivered through a semi-automatic 5-speed transmission. It is expected to use electric power for as far as 12 miles (19 km).

The electric motor will be partnered with the 1.0-liter engine that is adapted from the base model which has been bored to 1.2 liters and features a more efficient combustion due to the Atkinson cycle. In addition, the 208 Hybrid FE Concept features racing cylinder head and diamond carbon coating.

On the other hand, the regular fuel tank was replaced by a smaller unit that can hold 20 liters. This model can accelerate from zero to 62 mph (100 km/h) in eight seconds and has a fuel economy rating of 135 mpg UK (112.4 mpg US or 2.1 liters / 100 km) with 49 g/km of CO2 emissions.
