Review

Peugeot’s first plug-in hybrid joins the Fleet News long-term test fleet just as new car registration figures from September reveal the popularity of diesel in this plate-change month continued to decline with a dramatic fall of 140% year-on-year, while that of petrol plug-ins soared 140%.

It’s timely then that, until March, I’ll be testing the heady mixture of efficiency and high performance encapsulated in the 3008 Hybrid4.

Low CO2 emissions of 31g/km means this SUV falls in the 6% benefit-in-kind (BIK) tax band; its 13.2kWh battery provides up to 40 miles of electric, zero emission range, taking less than four hours to charge.

But, this is also the most powerful Peugeot produced to date.

It has a 1.6-litre turbocharged PureTech petrol engine and two electric motors, giving 300PS and providing a 0-60mph time of just 5.9 seconds. The Hybrid4 is also the first model in the 3008 range available with four-wheel drive.

Our range-topping ‘GT’ test car has a P11D price of £46,695. Features include: leather upholstery, keyless entry, adaptive cruise control and a panoramic sunroof.

Helping to ensure I make full use of the features available and peace-of-mind in using a hybrid is the MyPeugeot app.

Downloadable free via Google Play and the App Store, you input the car’s VIN number and an email address to make use of fuel consumption tracking, technical alerts, pre-conditioning, as well as charging state, rate and range.

In one sense, the 3008 is not new to me. It shares a platform with the Citroën C5 Aircross and Vauxhall Grandland – both cars I’ve driven recently. And in 2019, the 3008 won the Fleet News Award for best mid-size SUV.

In the coming months, we’ll see how well the Peugeot compares with its peers and if it still leads the pack.
