Peugeot develops world's first diesel, electric hybrid
The combination of a fuel-efficient, 163-horsepower 2.0-litre HDi diesel engine and a 37-hp electric motor is the optimal combination for a hybrid vehicle, says Peugeot — the 3008 HYbrid 4’s diesel engine providing European Combined Drive Cycle fuel consumption of 3.8 litres per 100 kilometres and CO2 emissions of 99 grams per km.
The car gets the power due to a 2.0-liter 163 horsepower HDi diesel, which is accompanied with a 37 peak horsepower electric motor as well as 27 constant. Due to such characteristics, the car is efficient as well as powerful.
The 3008 HYbrid 4 is equipped with the Start-Stop technology which is developed by Peugeot.
To manage the available performance, a control selector mounted on the centre console enables the driver to choose between four different operating modes — Auto, ZEV, 4WD and Sport.
