The engines

Rechargeable hybrid engines are an iconic symbol of the Brand’s Power of Choice philosophy, the new SUV Peugeot 3008 therefore comes with 2 rechargeable Hybrid engine options:

  • HYBRID4 300 e-EAT8 / 4-wheel drive / from 29g/C02 per km and up to 59 km of 100% electric range (according to the WLTP protocol),
  • HYBRID 225 e-EAT8 / 2-wheel drive / from 30g/C02 per km and up to 56 km of 100% electric range (according to WLTP protocol).

Remarkably efficient and powerful, the HYBRID 4300 e-EAT8 version was created by combining a 200hp (or 147kW) PureTech engine and two electric engines: one at the front coupled to the e-EAT8 gearbox that reaches 110hp (or 81kW) and the second positioned on the rear axle for 112hp (or 83kW).

The 4WD mode, also available in Electric mode, provides improved traction on roads and difficult terrain. The result is flawless grip: whether on wet, muddy, snowy or winding roads, the power is distributed electronically and evenly across all four wheels of the vehicle.

The 225hp (or 165kW) HYBRID two-wheel drive version combines a 180hp (or 132kW) PureTech engine with a 110hp (or 80kW) electric engine attached to the e-EAT8 gearbox.

Based on the Efficient Modular Platform (EMP2), both versions benefit from a multi-link rear suspension, creating a perfect balance between comfort and driving pleasure. All of this without affecting spaciousness and preserving the boot volume above the mat.

The Li-ion battery has a capacity of 13.2 kWh and two types of on-board chargers are available, meeting all customer needs and charging solutions, with a 3.7 kW single-phase charger as standard and a 7.4 kW single-phase charger as an option.

Estimated recharging times are as follows:

  • with a 7.4 kW Wall Box: reaching full charge in 1h45 with the single-phase (7.4kW) on-board charger,
  • with a reinforced socket (16A): for a full charge in 4 hours with the single-phase (3.7kW) onboard charger,
  • with a standard socket (8A): for a full charge in 7 hours with the single-phase (3.7kW) on-board charger.

The TCO (Total Cost of ownership or cost per use) which is already used for professional customers, and of course applicable for private customers. The purchase cost of a plug-in hybrid vehicle is higher, but all factors must be taken into account:

  • the variety of tax incentives (ecological bonuses, bonuses, corporate subsidies),
  • the maintenance cost,
  • the lower energy costs.

The objective is to offer a TCO or equivalent running cost between a combustion vehicle and an electric vehicle.
