Peugeot Marque has introduced to the market a new concept that fully expresses what the brand stands for. Meet the "5 BY PEUGEOT," a concept car whose exterior designs can awaken the emotion with a guarantee of extraordinary comfort, convenience, and interior space.
This concept by Peugeot Marque integrates its own Hybrid4 technology which will also be launched with the Peugeot 3008 in 2011. The main engine is mounted on the front of the car and is linked with an electric motor located on the rear part.
Up front is a 163 bhp 2.0-liter HDi FAP diesel engine while the rear has an electric 37 bhp motor. The result of this is a combined 200 bhp power and fuel consumption of 74.3 mpg with CO2 emissions of 99 g/km. The electric motor though can be solely used when running at low speeds or when using a four-wheel drive and has zero emissions.
As additional proof of the car’s environmental strategy is the Hybrid4 system’s modular technology that can easily be combined with other engines depending on the requirement of the market. It can also be mounted on different body types or shapes and even on different platforms to make sure that there is always full enjoyment when driving.
