Peugeot has recently released some interesting details with the 208 Hybrid FE Concept, ahead of the model’s official debut at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show in September.
According to the French based automaker, the Peugeot 208 Hybrid FE Concept has been developed by Peugeot Sport and Total and the model is said to offer 208 GTI-like performances while emitting less than 50 g/km of CO2. The model in question will get a 1.2 liter engine under its hood, along with the 908 HYbrid 4 Le Mans sourced hybrid module and battery. This is generating 40 HP and it’s backed up by the 90-cell lithium-ion battery.
Thanks to this configuration, the Peugeot 208 Hybrid FE Concept can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 8 seconds while burning just 2.09 liters of fuel every 100 km (135 mpg UK / 112.4 mpg US). The model weighs 200 kg (440 lbs) less than the 1.0 liter VTi 208, at a total of 975 kg (2,149 lbs). Three driving modes are being offered, zero-emissions, hybrid and sport and the total electric range of the car will stand at 14-19 km (9-12 miles). Peugeot isn’t planning to put the model into production just yet. Additional details on it are limited for the moment and will be announced in Frankfurt.
