Write a Review about the Peugeot 3008
Peugeot 3008 HYbrid4, the
full hybrid diesel-electric
crossover in the world, is now
available with even lower CO2
emissions, reduced to just
Peugeot, the innovator of the HYbrid4
technology, stays one step ahead by improving the environmental
performance of its innovative drive train (an HDi 163 diesel powering
the front wheels and a 37bhp electric motor the rear wheels so combining
200bhp, four-wheel drive, with Auto, Sport and ZEV modes).
With a wealth of experience obtained in
the development of three full hybrid diesel models in the Peugeot range
(3008 HYbrid4, 508 RXH and 508 Saloon HYbrid4), the engineers, in their
unceasing work to develop this technology, have identified aspects that
introduce further optimisation.
New management software for the
engines, including a number of
improvements, has been
developed. These changes, which
optimise the phases of energy
recovery and the management of
the batteries, allowed new
savings to be made in CO2
emissions and fuel consumption.
These benefits are most marked
in an urban driving environment.
The 3008 HYbrid4 is now type-approved
on the combined cycle at 91g/km and the potential for 80.7mpg for the
version fitted with very low rolling resistance Energy Saving 16
tyres. The models fitted with other tyre sizes (16 M+S (Mud & Snow),
17 or 18) also see their CO2 emissions reduced to 99g/km.
For company car users and operators,
the three HYbrid4
models offer very attractive advantages, benefitting from the best
possible environmental and fiscal position. Quite apart from the
on-demand driving modes (ZEV, 4WD, Auto & Sport), plus good fuel economy
and low emissions, HYbrid4 vehicles also benefit from low BIK (Benefit
In Kind) taxation (10% on 3008 HYbrid4 & 508 Saloon HYbrid4, 12% on 508
RXH) and for companies the vehicles attract 100% Capital Write Down
Allowance in the first year.
