The Peugeot 3008 Crossover, with HYbrid4 technology, is the first diesel-electric ‘Full Hybrid’ production car in the world. Peugeot believe the combination of a powerful yet fuel efficient diesel engine and electric motor is the optimal combination for a hybrid vehicle. Unlike previous hybrid vehicles which have chosen to use a less fuel efficient petrol engine, the HYbrid4’s diesel engine provides a Combined Drive Cycle fuel consumption of 74mpg, and as little as 99g/km CO2. Drivers can switch between four different operating modes; Auto, electric-only, 4wd and Sport Silent.
The use of diesel hybrid technology also brings a range of other benefits:
Sir Stirling Moss and others discuss technology and driving experience, plus how to get all the benefits of a hybrid without actually having to buy one.
