Peugeot and nuTonomy collaborate to test and deploy self-driving in Peugeot 3008 SUV

Self-driving sports utility vehicles from Peugeot may soon hit the roads as part of a project to test fully autonomous vehicles. The French carmaker has entered into a strategic partnership with nuTonomy – a self-driving car startup that had been formed at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 2013 – to have the Cambridge-based company install and implement its self-driving technology into Peugeot’s 3008 SUV.

Once nuTonomy’s software system has been fully installed into the Peugeot 3008 SUV, the partners will commence on-road testing of the self-driving vehicle in Singapore. The partnership is eyeing – ultimately -- to deploy thousands of fully autonomous cars in cities around the world.

As agreed, the initial phase of the partnership will entail nuTonomy having to seamlessly integrate its autonomous vehicle (AV) system – including its software, specialized sensors and computing platforms -- into the Peugeot 3008 SUVs. The partners consider the seamless integration of the AV system with vehicle hardware as a critical step toward deploying self-driving vehicle in large numbers and over extended life cycles.

Peugeot 3008 HYbrid4 now available with even lower CO2 emissions

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.

Orders are now being taken by the British division of Peugeot for the 3008 HYbrid4 model, the world’s first full diesel hybrid car. The limited edition variant will be delivered first.

Exclusive UK customer deliveries will start in October. The limited edition will have the same powertrain as the standard version of the model and will feature enhancements that give it a sporty look.

It is priced at £26,600 and deliveries will begin in November 2011. Peugeot said that the 3008 HYbrid4 uniquely combines low CO2 emissions, high levels of driving enjoyment, reduced running costs, a maximum power output of 200 bhp, all-wheel drive, zero emission vehicle mode (ZEV), and CO2 emissions in the Combined Drive Cycle, model dependent, from 99 g/km.

Later this week, PSA/Peugeot-Citroen will introduce the world's first diesel-electric car and will be taking on Renault SA's all-electric strategy. The strategy that these two French carmakers have taken up is in line with their goal to catch up with Toyota Motor Corp. At the Paris Auto Show, PSA (Europe's second-largest automaker) will launch a hybrid version of its 3008 crossover hatchback.

Meanwhile, Renault embarks on a strategy to make battery-powered cars a mass-market success. With the coming to light of strategies that PSA CEO Philippe Varin and Renault-Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn's have embraced, the industry divisions on what they expect green technology consumers will favor are becoming clearer.

However, these carmakers have quite a way to go before they could catch up with market leader Toyota, which launched the world's first hybrid (the gasoline-electric Prius) in 1997. According to Peugeot spokesman Jean-Marc Sarret, European prices for the 3008 hybrid will start somewhere above 30,000 euros ($40,400). In comparison, the basic gasoline version costs 21,600 euros.

Peugeot will soon be launching the world's first diesel hybrid, a 3008-based four-wheel-drive car, which offers 200bhp and 369lb ft and utilizes a diesel-electric drivetrain. Emitting just 99g/km of CO2, the Hybrid 4 is an otherwise-conventional front-drive car that is powered by a 163bhp 2.0-litre turbodiesel engine fitted with a stop-start system.

Modifications related to the hybrid system, which adds 100kg to the weight of the car, include the incorporation of an electric motor (good for 36bhp and 147lb ft at full tilt) and twin driveshafts for the rear wheels.

Under the boot floor, you can find a battery pack and a pair of electronic control units. To minimize costs, the Peugeot is using its existing self-shifting "robotized" six-speed box (with the automatic clutch actuation); there's also the option of wheel-mounted paddles.

Anyone interested in an all-wheel-drive diesel hybrid Peugeot RCZ? If you are, you better let Peugeot know because it says that it would only make such a model if it sees a demand for it.

Peugeot will not have much difficulty in producing the hybrid coupe since the technology has already been perfected in the 3008 Hybrid4, with which it shares a platform. Due to go on sale in 2011, the 3008 hybrid will be displayed at next month's Frankfurt show in production form.
