Aimed at maximising efficiency and fuel consumption, the hybrid system will be available on top models and give drivers the option of driving in electric-only mode, with up to 30 miles of range on a single charge(WLTP regime).
It also means the 3008 will be available as a four-wheel drive system for the first time, although all models feature a 300V lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 11.8kWh, or 13.2kWh in the case of the more potent 3008 HYBRID4.
New systems such as the 'i-Booster’ braking regen system and ‘e-Save’ journey planner are aimed at increasing range further and maximising efficiency.
In terms of power, the regular HYBRID features a 178bhp 1.6-litre petrol engine and a 108bhp electric motor, with an average CO2 output of just 49g/km.
The 3008 can also be equipped with the powerful HYBRID4 system. This high-end offering provides four-wheel drive and a combined output of 297bhp – enough to get it from rest to 62mph in 6.5secs.
If charged via a 6.6kW wall box, the vehicles can be recharged in less than two hours, with guide lamps located around the charging socket allowing you to easily identify the battery’s charge. Via a standard plug socket, it will take seven hours.
Although unveiled today, Peugeot’s new hybrid line-up won’t be available until autumn 2019. If you can’t wait until then, you can find in-stock Peugeots that are available right now by clicking here.
