The advantages of the 100% electric mode of plug-in hybrids
HOW DO PLUG-IN HYBRID VEHICLES WORK?
PLUG-IN HYBRID ENGINE
Combination of an electric motor & petrol engine
OPTIMAL AND IMPERCEPTIBLE TRANSITIONS
To alternate between electric and combustion engines, the torque converter of the combustion engine versions is replaced by a wet multi-plate clutch to provide 60 Nm more torque and more responsiveness.
ELECTRIFIED REAR AXLE
On the HYBRID4 version, the multi-link rear axle is equipped with a 110 hp/83 kW electric motor to provide 4-wheel drive, without impacting on passenger space.
PETROL COMBUSTION ENGINE
The 1.6 PureTech engine has been adapted, with an alternator-starter and a specific cooling front panel. It produces 180 hp on HYBRID and 200 hp on HYBRID4.
NEW ELECTRIC AUTOMATIC GEARBOX
The PureTech engine is paired with the new 8-speed e-EAT8 automatic gearbox. Combined with the gearbox, an electric motor produces 110 hp/81 kW on the front axle.
PLUG-IN HYBRID VEHICLE BATTERY
The high-voltage battery is of the Lithium-ion type (300V) and is located under the rear seats on both HYBRID and HYBRID4 (4-wheel drive) versions. The battery has a capacity of between 11.8 kWh For 508 and 508 SW Plug-in Hybrids and 13.2 kWh For 3008 Plug-in Hybrid .
The battery comes with an 8-year or 160,000 km warranty. For customers who have taken out a service contract, a certificate attesting to the level of battery charging performance may be made available after each periodic overhaul of the vehicle. This certificate, when reselling the vehicle, will be a guarantee of battery performance for the new owner.
In order to optimise CO2 consumption as much as possible, choose 100% electric driving for your daily urban journeys. Electric travel can reach 135 km/h before the internal combustion engine takes over.
Charge your vehicle every day so that you can enjoy 100% electric mode at all times!
For renewed pleasure
NEW BRAKE FUNCTION
The driver can choose to activate a new Brake function that allows the vehicle to decelerate without applying the brake pedal. It also allows the battery to be recharged, such as when travelling downhill.
In Drive mode, a single rearward pull on the Shift and Park by wire automatic gearbox selector activates Brake mode.
4 DRIVING MODES
- Electric : default mode, make the most of all the benefits of an electric vehicle.
- Hybrid : allows you to drive both on electric and internal combustion engines, depending on your driving style and the type of road you are driving on.
- Sport : enjoy maximum engine torque performance with the combination of both energies.
- Confort : combines hybrid mode with the comfort of active suspension to ensure better road grip, while maintaining optimum comfort.
NEW e-SAVE FUNCTION
With the e-SAVE function, the driver can set aside a reserve of electrical energy to be used when desired. This function can, for example, keep a reserve of electrical energy in anticipation of a restricted traffic area.
Accessible from the e-SAVE menu on the touchscreen, simply select Zero Emission mode on the driving mode selector for 100% electric driving.
The PEUGEOT i-Cockpit® incorporates driving information in the driver’s field of vision. It is fully customisable and configurable.
A power meter to the right of the digital instrument panel is made up of 3 zones:
ECO for energy-efficient driving
POWER for more dynamic driving
CHARGE for energy recovery phases
There are two gauges on either side of the instrument panel: one for fuel, the other for electric. The available range, in km, is indicated below these gauges.
The PureTech engine is paired with the new 8-speed e-EAT8 automatic gearbox. Combined with the gearbox, an electric motor produces 100 hp/80 kW on the front axle.
