The French based automaker Peugeot has announced that the 3008 Hybrid4 has just become more eco-friendly thanks to some new management software.
After launching the first ever diesel electric hybrid back in 2010 in the form of the Peugeot 3008 Hybrid4, powered by a 2.0 liter four-cylinder turbo diesel engine with 163 HP “moving” the front wheels and with an electric motor for the rear axle with 37 HP, producing a total output of 200 HP and 500 Nm of torque (369 lb-ft), the model is being placed into the spotlights one more time by the company. Peugeot recently announced that the 3008 Hybrid is now more fuel efficient and its CO2 emissions have dropped thanks to new management software for both the diesel engine and the electric motor.
According to the car manufacturer, the Peugeot 3008 Hybrid4 is now burning an average of 3.5L/100km (80.7 mpg UK / 67.2 mpg US) while emitting 91 g/km of CO2. This is a significant improvement compared to the previous 3.8L/100km (61.9 mpg US) and the 99 g/km of CO2 emitted before. Peugeot is saying that the most notable improvements in the 3008 Hybrid4 will be seen in urban driving.
