Peugeot’s HYbrid future products shown

Peugeot’s HYbrid future products shown 4





Peugeot embraces the ‘new’ in the world of the motor car drawing its strength from a rich heritage synonymous with different forms of mobility, from 2-wheelers to 4-wheel drive, Peugeot is a key player in global, sustainable mobility.

At this Frankfurt Motor Show, Peugeot is demonstrating once again its desire and ability to combine driving enjoyment and environmental efficiency with its vision to the mobility of tomorrow.

Elegance, creativity, technological performance and conceptual innovation: it is these characteristics that best describe the 32 production models, concept cars and demonstrators shown in an exhibition area of 2,900 m2.

Peugeot - environmental leadership
The new Frankfurt Motor Show gives Peugeot the opportunity to reaffirm its responsible approach of placing high economy and low CO2 emissions vehicles at the heart of its product policy: to offer today an attractive, competitive product range with a small carbon footprint, and to prepare for the future with the introduction of radical new technologies.

Results today - Peugeot is the inventor and leader in the field of the Diesel Particle Emissions Filter (DPFS / FAP): since the beginning of the decade, more than 2.1 million of its HDi vehicles have since been equipped with it.

Today Peugeot is one of the leading manufacturers in the UK and in Europe for low-emission and high economy vehicles.

This performance is illustrated on the stand at Frankfurt by production vehicles with particularly low emissions in their category:
207 ‘99g’, 107 ‘106g’, 308 Hatchback ‘120g’, 3008 ‘130g’ and 407 ‘129g’.

… but for tomorrow it’s the turn of the HYbrid4  - As well as a new ‘all electric’ urban vehicle from the end of 2010 and the rollout on production vehicles of the second-generation ‘Stop & Start’ system in 2011, Peugeot is preparing a future which, in less than two years, will combine greatly reduced fuel consumption and emissions with renewed driving enjoyment.

The innovative hybrid diesel technology - HYbrid4 - comes into its own in a European car market where the popularity of diesel engines is largest, capitalising firstly on the group’s advanced knowledge in HDi engines, electric vehicles and the perfection of existing components (i.e. the 6-speed electronically controlled manual gearbox and Stop & Start systems).

It also relies on a parallel architecture: alternating in operation between the HDi diesel engine and the electric motor to ensure optimal efficiency according to how the car is driven – in town or on the open road.  When used simultaneously, the two power units offer increased performance. The result: a real breakthrough in terms of fuel consumption and CO2 emissions of around -35% in the combined cycle, compared to engines of an equivalent power output.

With the HYbrid4 solution, the innovative location of the electric motor at the rear of the vehicle offers new benefits – four-wheel drive, without the drawback of a mechanical connection – and ensures technical and economic viability thanks to the preservation of an engine compartment at the front able to accommodate different conventional engines and offering the benefit of adaptability.

Because progress means little unless it can be shared by the greatest number, Peugeot intends eventually to develop a range of HYbrid4 vehicles offering renewed driving enjoyment and exceptional environmental credentials to enhance performance and road holding, but also through the automatic and unobtrusive operation of the combined power trains.

Two concept cars, unveiled for the first time on the Peugeot stand at Frankfurt, illustrate this commitment: The 3008 HYbrid4 (now CO2 of 99g/km) previews the production model scheduled to appear in the Spring of 2011, while with the experimental RCZ HYbrid4 (CO2 of 95g/km), the manufacturer proposes a synthesis of performance and environmental responsiveness.

Drawing its strength from a rich heritage synonymous with different forms of mobility, from the 2-wheeler to 4-wheel drive, Peugeot sees itself as a key player in global, sustainable mobility.

Peugeot is working to demonstrate that creativity and responsibility, far from being irreconcilable, actually allow pre-determined methods and familiar territory to be changed around, to re-think mobility both for today and the future, in fact to re-invent the car, in all of its dimensions!
