Peugeot opens up order books for new plug-in hybrid models


PEUGEOT has opened reservations for four new plug-in hybrid models; the 3008 SUV HYBRID, 3008 SUV GT HYBRID4, 508 HYBRID and 508 SW HYBRID, with customers able to place their reservations online with a £500 deposit, with customer deliveries starting January 2020.

The  508 HYBRID and 508 SW HYBRID has combined fuel efficiency of up to 235mpg and CO2 emissions as low as 31g/km under the latest WLTP tests, with both the saloon and SW capable of up to 39 miles on electricity. The new four-wheel drive 3008 SUV GT HYBRID4 comes with a 220kW (300hp) plug-in drivetrain that’s capable of 0-62mph in just 5.9 seconds, and will achieve ultra-low emissions of 28g/km and up to 40 miles of fully-electric range under WLTP tests.

The 3008 GT HYBRID4 is powered by a combination of a 147kW (200hp) 1.6-L PureTech petrol engine and two electric motors for a total power output of 220kW (300hp). The 3008 HYBRID, all-new 508 HYBRID and 508 SW HYBRID feature a 132kW (180hp) 1.6-L PureTech petrol engine that works alongside a single 80kW (110hp) electric motor on the front axle, for a combined power figure of 165kW (225hp).

All four of the models can be fully charged in under two hours using a standard 7kW Wallbox. The 3008 SUV GT HYBRID4 features a 13.2kWh traction battery, while the 508 HYBRID and 508 SW HYBRID come with an 11.8kWh battery. The all-new plug-in hybrids attract a Benefit In Kind (BIK) rate for company car drivers of only 10% from April 2020 (based on sub 50g/km CO2 and 30-39 electric miles WLTP banding).
