An automobile revolution
With its new HYbrid4 engine technology, Peugeot proves that it is possible to be perfectly eco-friendly yet procure ever-more pleasurable driving sensations.
By using a diesel engine, an electrical engine, the Stop&Start system and an electronically-controlled, sequential manual gearbox together, Peugeot has accomplished a major technological feat and outstanding automobile innovation.
A smart engine
The front-wheel drive diesel engine runs optimally when on road trips.
For urban trips when the vehicle is started or is cruising in low-gear speed the electrical engine takes over.
With the Stop&Start system, which sets the heat engine to stand-by mode then automatically restarts it, the HYbrid4 offers zero-emission mode driving.
An easy-to-use knob on the console allows the driver to choose between 4 different modes:
- "Auto" mode, which manages the system automatically,
- "Zero-Emission Vehicle" mode for 100% electrical driving,
- "4-Wheel Drive" mode for intensified road-hold on difficult surfaces,
- "Sports" mode for dynamic driving.
The last two driving modes use the electrical and diesel engines simultaneously.
A new era
Peugeot's 3008, the first model to be equipped with this innovative technology, combines on-board comfort with enhanced driving sensations and ecological performances.
The 508 RXH, the latest in the HYbrid4 family, offers a unique perspective of the all-road world and integrates a revolutionary and fun-filled approach to driving comfort.
