Peugeot’s New 508 Hybrid And 3008 Hybrid4 PHEVs Deliver Up To 300PS, AWD

Following parent company PSA’s electrification announcement last week, Peugeot has unveiled its refreshed plug-in hybrid lineup that will go on sale in the second quarter of 2019.

Three models will be available with the new Hybrid and Hybrid4 plug-in hybrid gasoline powertrains: the 508 sedan, 508 SW wagon, and 3008 crossover.

Peugeot’s new electrified models will be joined by a battery-electric version of the all-new 208 in 2019.

Peugeot 3008 Hybrid4

The big news is the 3008 finally gets all-wheel drive thanks to the Hybrid4 powertrain which combines a 1.6-liter PureTech gasoline engine rated at 200 PS (197 hp) with two electric motors each producing 80 kW (109 PS/108 hp). One of the electric motors is located on the front axle and the other on the rear axle, giving the 3008 all-wheel-drive capability.

Also part of the hybrid system is a 13.2-kWh battery pack that provides an all-electric driving range of 50 km (31 miles) WLTP. Combined CO2 emissions are projected to be less than 49 g/km WLTP. Thanks to a total system power of 300 PS (296 hp) the new powertrain also gives the 3008 Hybrid4 improved performance: the 0 to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) sprint takes 6.5 seconds.

The Peugeot 3008 Hybrid4 will only be available in the range-topping GT grade combining Alcantara Greval Grey upholstery with authentic grey oak trim. The model will also offer driving assistance systems sourced from the 508, such as adaptive cruise control with stop & go function and lane keeping assist. Later on, the 3008 will also be available with the front-wheel-drive Hybrid powertrain that debuts on the 508 and 508 SW.

Peugeot 508 and 508 SW Hybrid

The 508 sedan and 508 SW get a front-wheel-drive plug-in hybrid system that combines a 1.6-liter PureTech gasoline unit rated at 180 PS (178 hp) with an 80-kW electric motor for a combined maximum power of 225 PS (222 hp). The system also includes an 11.8-kWh battery that allows the 508 and 508 SW to cover 40 km (25 miles) in EV mode.

Customers will be able to order the 508 Hybrid and 508 SW Hybrid in three grades: Allure, GT Line, and GT. Both the Hybrid and Hybrid4 powertrains use a new electrified e-EAT8 eight-speed automatic transmission that is linked to the 80kW electric motor on the front axle. For seamless transitions between electrical and thermal, the e-EAT8 unit ditches the torque converter for a wet multiple-disc clutch.

In addition to the e-EAT8 transmission, the Hybrid4 version also uses an inverter, an additional 80kW electric motor for 4WD capability, and a gearbox for four-wheel drive. Recharging the batteries takes between 1h45min with a 6.6kW 32A Wallbox and 7 hours with a standard plug.
