Peugeot 3008 HYbrid4
With the 3008 Hybrid4 Peugeot thinks they’ve created a flawless all-rounder. It’s a hybrid MPV car with lots of room, great features, and good fuel economy. But we think they’ve overlooked one very important factor: the way this car looks.
The looks might not be very brilliant, but the rest of the car is also pretty competent. The diesel electric crossover MPV thingy has an HDi 163 diesel powering the front wheels and a 37bhp electric motor the rear wheels so combining 200bhp, four-wheel drive, with Auto, Sport and ZEV modes. The 3008 HYbrid4 is now type-approved on the combined cycle at 91g/km and the potential for 80.7mpg for the version fitted with very low rolling resistance Energy Saving 16’’ tyres.
Still, if you think you can live with the way the 3008 looks, you will be getting lots of value for your money. It’s a great car for your family.
Peugeot press release:
The Peugeot 3008 HYbrid4, the first full hybrid diesel-electric crossover in the world, is now available with even lower CO2 emissions, reduced to just 91g/km.
With a wealth of experience obtained in the development of three full hybrid diesel models in the Peugeot range (3008 HYbrid4, 508 RXH and 508 Saloon HYbrid4), the engineers, in their unceasing work to develop this technology, have identified aspects that introduce further optimisation.
New management software for the engines, including a number of improvements, has been developed. These changes, which optimise the phases of energy recovery and the management of the batteries, allowed new savings to be made in CO2 emissions and fuel consumption. These benefits are most marked in an urban driving environment.
For company car users and operators, the three HYbrid4 models offer very attractive advantages, benefitting from the best possible environmental and fiscal position. Quite apart from the on-demand driving modes (ZEV, 4WD, Auto & Sport), plus good fuel economy and low emissions, HYbrid4 vehicles also benefit from low BIK (Benefit In Kind) taxation (10% on 3008 HYbrid4 & 508 Saloon HYbrid4, 12% on 508 RXH) and for companies the vehicles attract 100% Capital Write Down Allowance in the first year.
