HOW DO PLUG-IN HYBRID VEHICLES WORK?

PEUGEOT Plug-In Hybrid Technology | EMP2 Platform

EMP2 PLATFORM

The new EMP2 Common Modular Platform (CMP) has been developed in order to perfectly integrate the specific components of each energy, without compromising on performance.

PLUG-IN HYBRID ENGINE

Combination of an electric motor & petrol engine

PEUGEOT Plug-in Hybrid Technology | e-EAT8 Electrified Automatic Gearbox

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

LITHIUM-ION TYPE 

PEUGEOT Plug-in Hybrid Technology | PEUGEOT 3008 SUV HYBRID4

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 kWhi and 13.2 kWhi

The battery comes with an 8-year or 160,000 km warranty to 70% capacity.

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!

ENRICHED DRIVING

For renewed pleasure

PEUGEOT Plug-in Hybrid Technology | Enriched Driving | Brake Fuunction

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.

PEUGEOT Plug-in Hybrid Technology | Enriched Driving | 4 Driving Modes

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.
  • Comfort: combines hybrid mode with the comfort of active suspension to ensure better road grip, while maintaining optimum comfort.
PEUGEOT Plug-in Hybrid Technology | Enriched Driving | e-Save Function

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.

PEUGEOT Plug-in Hybrid Technology | Enriched Driving | 3D PEUGEOT i-Cockpit®

PEUGEOT i-COCKPIT®

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.

PEUGEOT Plug-in Hybrid Technology | Enriched Driving | e-EAT8 Gearbox

e-EAT8 GEARBOX

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.
