The PEUGEOT HYbrid4 range starts at 85g of CO2/km

The innovative hybrid drive train, associating Diesel and electric power, has evolved with modified management of the two motors to optimise energy recovery when braking. As a result, the frequency of the use made of electric energy is increased. CO2 emissions now fall to 85g/km on the 3008 HYbrid4 and 508 HYbrid4, to 104g/km on the 508 RXH.

To have the addition of electrical power available more frequently, new software for the management of the motors optimises the phases of operation of the electric motor fitted to the rear axle. When braking, energy recovery is increased. Electric running (zero emissions) is now possible up to 85 km/h compared to 70 km/h previously.


CO2 emissions and fuel consumption fall on the 3008 HYbrid4 and 508 HYbrid4 with 508 RXH falling even further. On the versions equipped with ultra-low rolling resistance tyres, the 3008 HYbrid4 crossover (with 16’’ wheels) and the 508 HYbrid4 sedan (with 16” and 17” wheels) produce only 85g CO2/km, equal to fuel consumption of 3.3 l/100 km (85.6 mpg).

On the versions with the other tyre fitments, the 3008 HYbrid4 (16” M+S, 17” or 18”) contains its CO2 emissions to just 99 g /km, equal to fuel consumption of 3.8 l/100 km (74.3 mpg). On the versions fitted with 18’’ tyres, the 508 HYbrid4 sees its CO2 emissions maintained at 91g, equal to 3.5 l/100 km (80.7 mpg).

The third vehicle in the PEUGEOT hybrid range, the 508 RXH, lowers its CO2 emissions to 104g/km, equal to 4.0 l/100km (70.6 mpg), with 17” or 18” tyres.
