PEUGEOT Plug-in Hybrid range

The PEUGEOT 3008 SUV HYBRID4, all-new PEUGEOT 508 HYBRID and all-new PEUGEOT 508 SW HYBRID, on display at the Geneva Motor Show, will all feature Plug-in Hybrid petrol engines.

The high voltage Lithium-ion (300V) battery, which powers PEUGEOT’s HYBRID and HYBRID4 engines, has a capacity between 11.8kWh and 13.2kWh, allowing the cars to drive up to 30 miles on a single electric charge.

All-new PEUGEOT 508 HYBRID and all-new 508 SW HYBRID models combine the PureTech 180hp/132kW engine with a 110hp/80kW electric motor for a combined maximum power of 225hp/165kW producing less than 49g/km CO2.

The all-new HYBRID4 system will be fitted in the PEUGEOT 3008 SUV. The engine provides four-wheel drive with a 110hp/80kW inverter and reaches the equivalent of 300hp/220kW. This is helped by a combination of a PureTech engine reaching 200hp/147kW and two electric motors (one at the front and the second at the rear) each reaching 110hp/80kW to achieve 0 to 62mph in 6.5s. The battery capacity is 13.2kWh for a zero emission range of 30 miles under WLTP testing.

PEUGEOT will also be unveiling the all-new PEUGEOT 208 model at Geneva, which will be available with a choice of petrol and diesel powertrains along with a zero emission all-electric derivative, the all-new PEUGEOT e-208.

Powered by a 100 kW motor, the all-new PEUGEOT e-208 will be the first electric model available from PEUGEOT’s new electric range. The 5-door hatchback features a 50kWh battery, positioned under the floor to maintain interior space, which provides a range of up to 211 miles (WLTP) from a full charge.

Evolving from the 2018 PEUGEOT 508 HYBRID model, PEUGEOT SPORT will be unveiling the 508 PEUGEOT SPORT ENGINEERED concept at Geneva. This will have levels of performance comparable to those of a 400hp internal combustion vehicle. It has four-wheel drive and is capable of acceleration from 0-62mph in 4.3 seconds and a top speed of 155 mph.

With a 11.8kWh battery, the 508 PEUGEOT SPORT ENGINEERED concept has a range of up to 30 miles when switched to zero emission mode and CO2 emissions of 49g/km on the WLTP test protocols.

Unveiled at the 2018 Paris Motor Show, the PEUGEOT e-LEGEND CONCEPT car is the brand’s vision of the electric future. A 100% electric and autonomous concept model, the PEUGEOT e-LEGEND is powered by a 100% electric powertrain, with a 100 kWh battery. Its electric motor delivers 340 kW of power, distributed to the four-wheel drive system. This allows the PEUGEOT e-LEGEND to accelerate from 0 – 62mph in less than 4 seconds, reach a maximum speed of 136mph, and a range of 600km (372 miles) from full charge.
