To alternate between the electric and combustion engines, the torque converter of the combustion version gives way to a wet multiplate clutch to offer a 60 Nm increase in torque and greater responsiveness.
ELECTRIC REAR SUSPENSION
On the HYBRID4 version, the multi-link rear axle is equipped with a 110 hp/80 kW electric motor to provide 4-wheel drive, without impacting the interior.
The 1.6L PureTech engine has been adapted, with a starter-alternator and a specific cooling front panel. It develops 180 hp on HYBRID and 200 hp on HYBRID4 versions.
NEW ELECTRIC AUTOMATIC GEARBOX
The PureTech engine is combined with the new e-EAT8 8-speed automatic gearbox. In combination with the gearbox, an electric motor develops 100 hp/ 80 kW on the front axle.
The high-voltage lithium-ion battery (300 V) is located under the rear seats on both the HYBRID and HYBRID4 (4WD) versions. The battery has a capacity of between 11.8 kWhFor 508 and 508 SW plug-in hybrids and 13.2 kWhFor the 3008 plug-in hybrid . The battery has an 8-year warranty or 100,000 miles for 70% of its charge capacity.
In order to optimise CO2 emissions, choose driving in full electric mode for daily urban trips. Electric travel can reach up to 83 mph before the combustion engine takes over.
Activating the "Brake" mode (engine brake) limits use of the brake pedal while charging the battery as you decelerate. It also allows the battery to be charged, e.g. when driving downhill. Two braking modes are accessible:
- Moderate: for a feel similar to that of an internal combustion engine vehicle
- Increased: for deceleration controlled by the accelerator pedal
NEW e-SAVE FUNCTION
With the e-SAVE function, the driver can set an electric energy reserve, to be used when desired. This function can, for example, make it possible to keep a reserve of electrical energy in anticipation of a restricted traffic area.
Accessible from the e-SAVE menu on the touchscreen, simply select the Zero Emission mode on the driving mode selector for 100% electric driving.
The PEUGEOT i-Cockpit® displays driving information in the driver's field of view. It is fully configurable and customisable.
To the right of the digital instrument panel, a powermeter shows 3 zones:
-ECO for energy-optimised driving
-POWER for more dynamic driving
-CHARGE for energy recovery phases
Two gauges are arranged on either side of the instrument panel: one for fuel, the other for electricity. The available range, in miles, is indicated below these gauges.
EASY AND INTUITIVE ERGONOMICS
When charging, the digital instrument panel shows you the recovered range, the recovered charge rate, the charge speed and the remaining time for a full recharge.
The touchscreen incorporates a hybrid menu that provides access to:
-The energy flow page illustrating the operating status of the hybrid system
-The range of the all-electric mode
-The total electrical + combustion range
Stay connected to your vehicle
For maximum responsiveness, the content of the MyPeugeot mobile application is comprehensive. It now makes it possible to activate remote charging, find out the vehicle's progress and state of charge, pre-program heating on-board or evaluate its fuel or electricity consumption data at any time and anywhere.
