Peugeot and Total prepare for the future with the technology demonstrator 208 HYbrid FE
Continuing years of commitment to improving vehicle energy performance, Peugeot and Total are combining their capacity for innovation once more in a breakthrough project: the 208 HYbrid FE.

The aim is to design a vehicle combining real driving pleasure (0 to 100km/h / 0 to 62 mph in just 8.0 seconds) and with low emissions of CO2 (49g/km). This technological demonstrator will benefit from Peugeot and Total's latest innovations in aerodynamics, weight-saving and drivetrains. The performance of this technological demonstrator will be achieved without the use of a top-up energy source (non plug-in petrol technology) and taking as its base an already very efficient production vehicle.

The 208 HYbrid FE will innovate with its hybrid drivetrain inspired by competition. It is a power unit which combines a 3-cylinder petrol engine and its EGC (Electronic Gearbox Controlled) gearbox with an electric motor and a battery taken directly from the endurance programmes.

49g CO2/km, 0 to 100km/h / 0 to 62 mph in 8 seconds... This means halving the emissions of the most economical of the petrol engines (Fuel Economy) while obtaining acceleration worthy of a small sports car (so Fun and Efficient).

Peugeot and Total, partners moving towards the future

Partners since 1968, Peugeot and Total groups are working together to significantly reduce the fuel consumption, emissions of CO2 and TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) of vehicles.

Today, the two companies are involved in a project to offer future generations with mobility that combines energy efficiency (Fuel Economy) and driving pleasure (Fun & Emotion).
