PLUG-IN HYBRID TECHNOLOGY

 

As a major player in every technological revolution, PEUGEOT is serenely tackling the energy transition with the conviction that technology is still and always at the service of motoring pleasure.  Plug-in hybrid technology draws on two sources of energy for getting around: it combines an electric motor with a battery that can be recharged and a petrol engine. Because of this, you benefit from driving in 100% electric mode for up to 39 milesThe fuel consumption or electric range achieved, and CO2 produced, in real world conditions will depend upon a number of factors including, but not limited to: the accessories fitted (pre and post registration); the starting charge of the battery (PHEV only); variations in weather; driving styles and vehicle load. The plug-in HYBRID range requires mains electricity for charging. The WLTP (Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicles Test Procedure) is used to measure fuel consumption, electric range and CO2 figures. Figures shown are for comparison purposes and should only be compared to the fuel consumption, electric range and CO2 values of other cars tested to the same technical standard. The figures displayed for the plug-in HYBRID range were obtained using a combination of battery power and fuel.   for short journeys and using the combustion engine for long journeys.

 

PEUGEOT offers a range of plug-in hybrid vehicles with the new 508, 508 SW, 508 PEUGEOT Sport Engineered and the PEUGEOT 3008 (available as a 4-wheel drive: HYBRID4).



HYBRID ENGINE

A combination of electric and petrol engines

OPTIMAL AND IMPERCEPTIBLE TRANSITIONS

To alternate between the electric and combustion engines, the torque converter of the combustion version gives way to a wet multiplate clutch to offer a 60 Nm increase in torque and greater responsiveness.

 

ELECTRIC REAR SUSPENSION

On the HYBRID4 version, the multi-link rear axle is equipped with a 110 hp/80 kW electric motor to provide 4-wheel drive, without impacting the interior.

PETROL ENGINE

The 1.6L PureTech engine has been adapted, with a starter-alternator and a specific cooling front panel. It develops 180 hp on HYBRID and 200 hp on HYBRID4 versions.

 

NEW ELECTRIC AUTOMATIC GEARBOX

The PureTech engine is combined with the new e-EAT8 8-speed automatic gearbox. In combination with the gearbox, an electric motor develops 100 hp/ 80 kW on the front axle.

BATTERY 

Lithium-ion


 

 

The high-voltage lithium-ion battery (300 V) is located under the rear seats on both the HYBRID and HYBRID4 (4WD) versions. The battery has a capacity of between 11.8 kWhFor 508 and 508 SW plug-in hybrids  and 13.2 kWhFor the 3008 plug-in hybrid .  The battery has an 8-year warranty or 100,000 miles for 70% of its charge capacity.

 

In order to optimise CO2 emissions, choose driving in full electric mode for daily urban trips. Electric travel can reach up to 83 mph before the combustion engine takes over.

DRIVING PLEASURE

For renewed pleasure

NEW BRAKE FUNCTION

 

Activating the "Brake" mode (engine brake) limits use of the brake pedal while charging the battery as you decelerate. It also allows the battery to be charged, e.g. when driving downhill.  Two braking modes are accessible:

- Moderate: for a feel similar to that of an internal combustion engine vehicle

- Increased: for deceleration controlled by the accelerator pedal

 

NEW e-SAVE FUNCTION

 

With the e-SAVE function, the driver can set an electric energy reserve, to be used when desired. This function can, for example, make it possible to keep a reserve of electrical energy in anticipation of a restricted traffic area.

 

Accessible from the e-SAVE menu on the touchscreen, simply select the Zero Emission mode on the driving mode selector for 100%  electric driving.

PEUGEOT i-COCKPIT® 

 

The PEUGEOT i-Cockpit® displays driving information in the driver's field of view. It is fully configurable and customisable.

 

To the right of the digital instrument panel, a power meter shows 3 zones:

-ECO for energy-optimised driving

-POWER for more dynamic driving

-CHARGE for energy recovery phases

 

Two gauges are arranged on either side of the instrument panel: one for fuel, the other for electricity. The available range, in miles, is  indicated below these gauges.

EASY AND INTUITIVE ERGONOMICS

 

When charging, the digital instrument panel shows you the recovered range, the recovered charge rate, the charge speed and the remaining time for a full recharge.

 

The touchscreen incorporates a hybrid menu that provides access to:

-The energy flow page illustrating the operating status of the hybrid system

-Charging stations

-The range of the all-electric mode

-The total electrical + combustion range

MYPEUGEOT®

Stay connected to your vehicle

For maximum responsiveness, the content of the MyPeugeot mobile application is comprehensive. It now makes it possible to activate remote charging, find out the vehicle's progress and state of charge, pre-program heating on-board or evaluate its fuel or electricity consumption data at any time and anywhere.
