Peugeot 3008 & 5008 Hybrid Models With Stellantis Tech

The Peugeot 3008 and 5008 get 48V Hybrid powertrains from the Stellantis group.

PEUGEOT has big plans for 2023, with a focus on electrification, and its first new release will be the 48V hybrid powertrain. The new system will be offered on the PEUGEOT 3008 and 5008, and it will be complementing the already extensive family of electrified engines, which includes plug-in hybrid, 100% electric, and fuel cell models. The new powertrain will feature the new HYBRID system designed by Stellantis and offers some technical changes.

This powertrain replaces the ‘PureTech 130 EAT8’ option and will soon be offered in other Peugeot hybrid models. For now, the focus of this powertrain will be the European market, where emissions regulations are tight and Peugeot vehicles are in high demand. However, it’s entirely possible that it’ll be introduced in Malaysia as well, as the Stellantis plant in Gurun assembles these two models in petrol form for the region.

Stellantis Hybrid Powertrain Adapted To Peugeot Needs

The 48V hybrid system consists of a new-generation 136bhp PureTech petrol engine, coupled with a new 6-speed dual-clutch electrified gearbox that includes an electric motor. The battery recharges while driving, providing extra torque at low engine speeds and lowering fuel consumption by up to 15% (from 126g of CO2/km on 3008 and from 128g of CO2/km on 5008). This means that the C-segment SUV equipped with the HYBRID system can operate more than 50% of the time in 100% zero-emission electric mode in urban driving.

The HYBRID system offers simple and transparent operation, with the driver being informed of the operation of the hybrid system via the PEUGEOT i-Cockpit® handset, and the different modes can be activated automatically. During everyday driving, the combustion and electric engines work together or separately to optimize energy consumption, and during strong acceleration, the electric engine provides additional torque to the petrol engine at low revs. The petrol engine cuts out and the electric engine becomes a generator to recharge the 48V battery during deceleration.

The PEUGEOT 48V hybrid system offers some tangible benefits, such as a fuel saving of up to 15% and from 126g of CO2/km on 3008 and 128g on 5008. Compared with a non-electric petrol engine with comparable features, the HYBRID engine offers average fuel savings of around 1 litre/100 km on a C-segment SUV (WLTP combined cycle). This saving is mainly achieved in the city (- 2.5l/100km) and on the road (- 0.7l/100km), while motorway consumption remains unchanged. The performance translates into an average decrease of 20g/km in CO2 emissions (according to the WLTP combined cycle) on the 3008 and 5008.


The main components of the 48V hybrid system are all located under the bonnet, except for the 48V battery, which is installed under the front left seat of the PEUGEOT 3008 and 5008. The 1.2 litre PureTech petrol engine is a new generation of PureTech petrol engine specially developed for optimal integration with hybridization. The e-DCS6 (Dual Clutch System) gearbox is a new electrified 6-speed dual clutch gearbox without torque break specially designed for hybrid systems. The e-Motor is a permanent magnet synchronous electric motor built into the gearbox, which develops a peak power of 21kW (28hp) and a torque of 55Nm.
