Peugeot 3008 Hybrid4

Peugeot has confirmed its new plug-in hybrid 3008, the Hybrid4, will emit 29g/km.

The new model will be available to order later in the year and will attract a 10% BIK rate for vehicles registered after April 2020.

It uses a 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol engine and two electric motors, giving a combined 300PS and all-wheel-drive.

The front electric motor is coupled to an electrified eight-speed automatic transmission, while the second motor and differential are integrated into the electrically-powered rear axle.

Peugeot will also offer a 225PS single motor front-wheel-drive version of the plug-in hybrid 3008, which we be launched after the Hybrid4.

The Hybrid4’s 13.2kWh battery provides up to 36 miles of 100% electric, or zero emission range, with a full charge taking less than two hours using a seven kW chargepoint.

It features Alcantara Greval Grey interior trim, finished in aged oak wood. The PHEV also utilises the newest safety technology, shared with the all-new 508 Fastback and SW, with adaptive cruise control with Stop and Go function and Lane Positioning Assist.

David Peel, Managing Director of PEUGEOT UK, said: “The 3008 SUV GT Hybrid4 is the next step in PEUGEOT’s electrification journey. It will join the all-new e-208 and e-2008 SUV, and follows our philosophy of ‘choose your PEUGEOT, choose your powertrain’, as 3008 SUV buyers have the choice between efficient petrol, diesel and the plug-in hybrid electric technology for their car.”

The 3008 SUV GT Hybrid4 will be joined by PHEV versions of the all-new 508 Fastback and the all-new 508 SW estate, while the all-new 208 and 2008 SUV will both offer fully electric variants, the e-208 and e-2008 SUV. By 2023, PEUGEOT will offer electrified variants of every model in its line-up.

The 3008’s sister car, the Vauxhall Grandland X, is also offered with the same powertrain but has slightly higher emissions of 32g/km.

Prices for the 3008 Hybrid4 have not been confirmed, by the Grandland X is priced from £35,590.
