PEUGEOT presents its new Plug-in Hybrid petrol engines.
The new engines will bein addition the to existing PEUGEOT 3008 and the new PEUGEOT 508 and 508 SW engines.
The HYBRID engine and the HYBRID4 (four-wheel-drive) engine will be integrated to the new PEUGEOT 508 and PEUGEOT 3008 respectively. Available in mid-2019.
The PEUGEOT driving experience will be enhanced with new driving modes for rebooted enjoyment and sensations thanks to the magic effect of the ZEV 100% electric mode, the efficiency of the 4-wheel drive mode (HYBRID4), the power of the Sport mode or the versatility of the Hybrid mode. The technology is simple and intuitive, at the service of full freedom: freedom of use, with vehicles adapted to road, urban or outdoor routes. Freedom of choice, with 2 or 4 driving wheels, 225hp or 300hp, sedan, SW or SUV. Freedom of use with the 4 driving modes.
These two new engines are the tangible proof of PEUGEOT's vision of unconstrained, exciting and ever more efficient mobility. #UnboringTheFuture.
PLUG-IN HYBRID TECHNOLOGY
PEUGEOT presents its PLUG-IN HYBRID range: a HYBRID and HYBRID4 rechargeable option linked to a petrol engine.
The 1.6L PureTech engine has been adapted, with the addition of a starter-alternator or a specific cooling face. It reaches 180hp on HYBRID and 200hp on HYBRID4.
New electrified automatic gearbox
The PureTech engine is combined with the new e-EAT8 8-speed automatic transmission (Electric Efficient Automatic Transmission - 8 speeds), specific to PEUGEOT PLUG-IN HYBRID engines.An electric motor is linked to the box and reaches 110hp/80kW on the front suspension.
For optimal transitions between electrical and thermal, the torque converter of the thermal versions gives way to a wet multiple-disc clutch. All these modifications offer a torque increase of 60Nm, for more reactivity.
An electrified rear suspension
On the HYBRID4 versions, the multi-link rear suspension is equipped with an inverter, a 110hp/80kW electric motor and a gearbox for 4-wheel drive. Its integration has been achieved without impact on usability.
The high voltage battery is Lithium-ion (300V) and is located under the 2nd row seats on both HYBRID and HYBRID4 versions. The battery has a capacity of between 11,8KWh (HYBRID) and 13,2 KWh (HYBRID4), at the best level of the market. This capability ensures 100% electric driving up to 50 kilometres WLTP(2) (60 kilometres NEDC(1)).
To get the most out of the operating silence, the default mode will be the Zero Emission mode, when the battery charge status allows it. The electric movements can reach 135km/h before the heat engine takes over.

(2) The values given are in accordance with the WLTP procedure. As of 1 September 2018, new vehicles are being received on the basis of the Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP), which is a new, more realistic test procedure for measuring fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and the range of plug-in hybrid vehicles. This WLTP procedure is carried out with more realistic test conditions and completely replaces the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC), which was the test procedure used previously. The measured range for rechargeable hybrid vehicles using the WLTP procedure is in many cases lower than that measured using the NEDC procedure. The range values shown correspond to the average values of the vehicles in the range. All values shown may vary depending on specific equipment, options and types of tyres.
