World's first diesel hybrid

Priced from 26,995 the new Peugeot 3008 HYbrid4 is due here towards the middle of next year.

This environmentally friendly, ground breaking car introduces a combination of diesel and electric power, a real breakthrough in technology and renewed driving sensations, while also delivering huge benefits in cost of ownership.

The HYbrid4 power train delivers a lean 3.8 litres/100km low and low engine emissions of 99g/km of CO2, with four driving modes - Auto, ZEV (Zero Emission Vehicle), Sport and 4WD.

That's 35 per cent less than an internal combustion engine with the same output.

The car features an unusual drive train arrangement, with a 121kW 2.0-litre HDi FAP diesel engine that drives the front wheels and an 27kW electric motor that powers the rear wheels, with a combined power output of 149kW.

In the UK the car qualifies for an exemption from the London's prohibitive Congestion Charge.

Having sold out of the 3008 HYbrid4 limited edition, the range offers two versions: a 99g/km CO2 at 26,995 and 104g/km CO2 at 28,495.
