Peugeot has released an update for the 3008 HYbrid4 that lowers CO2 emissions and fuel consumption.


The Peugeot 3008 HYbrid4 went on sale in Europe at the beginning of last year and now it has received an update that lowers fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. Advertised as the first full hybrid diesel-electric crossover to hit the market, it still carries the HDi 163 diesel engine motivating the front wheels, along with a 37 bhp (27 kW) electric motor powering the rear wheels, for a total of 200 bhp (149 kW). This is a four-wheel drive vehicle that provides three driving modes to choose from: Auto, Sport and ZEV.

The CO2 emissions were cut to 91 g/km, compared to the previous model’s 99 g/km figure. As for the fuel consumption, the updated Peugeot 3008 HYbrid4 promises to return 80.7 mpg UK (67.1 US mpg or 3.51 liters / 100km) for the version that comes with the 16-inch low-rolling resistance Energy Saving tires.
