Peugeot Geneva Motor Show Update
Success in the MPV segment
After only being launched last year, the 3008 and 5008 are 25% above target, with more than 200,000 being sold, and the demand continues…
Less than two years ago, Peugeot’s compact MPV’s lacked any presence within the highly competitive market. The 3008 and 5008 share similarities in terms of capacity, comfort and dynamic qualities, which have both helped Peugeot to achieve such success.
The Environmental Objective
Peugeot 3008 Hybrid4
Peugeot are proud to announce that their 3008 HYbrid4, will be the world’s first Diesel Hybrid. This particular model will be shown at Geneva as a limited edition. There will be 300 numbered cars, in Pearlescent White with two-tone full leather trim and can be reserved online as soon as the Motor Show opens.
With its launch of the world’s first diesel hybrid vehicle, from mid-2011, Peugeot presents a new and original offer in terms of environmental efficiency and driving sensations.
The hybridisation of the diesel engine (2.0 HDi FAP 163 bhp) drving the front wheels and an electric motor with a capacity of 37 bhp at the rear, sets the scene for 4-wheel drive, giving a ‘zero emission’ mode, standardised average fuel consumption of 74.3 mpg and a maximum power output of 200 bhp. The CO2 emissions will only be 99 g/km! … A 35% reduction compared to an engine with comparable power.
HR1 Concept Car
This car will combine a city run-around, coupé and SUV, being urban, distinctive and innovative. The HR1 offers a whole new driving experience by being inspired by new trends in hyper-connectivity, modularity and responsiveness. Adding this all together will mean the HR1 is aimed at young, active city dwellers with a liking for design and technology.
The HR1 features a ‘scissor’ door system for access to the passenger compartment which shows it is incredibly innovative and modular.
The HR1 features HYbrid4 technology, here combining an original 3-cylinder 1.2 THP petrol engine at the front with a rear electric motor to offer a potential power output of 147 bhp, reduced CO2 emissions (80 g/km, or 0 in electric mode), and 4-wheel drive.
