The Peugeot 3008 HYbrid4 is a Crossover with exceptional technological content offering unique versatility and safety and CO2 emissions of a very low level. Peugeot's choice of the diesel hybrid demonstrates that it is possible to combine uncompromising environmental demands with driving experiences not previously available in a hybrid vehicle.

The Peugeot 3008 HYbrid4 will be produced in France and marketed in the spring of 2011 in Europe.  It is powered by a 2.0 litre 163 bhp Hdi diesel engine and a 37 bhp electric motor; it is potentially capable of 74.4 mpg with CO2 emissions of just 99g/km. The Peugeot 3008 Crossover, with HYbrid4 technology, is the first diesel ‘Full Hybrid’ production car in the world.

By launching the world’s first diesel full hybrid vehicle, Peugeot will be writing a new chapter in motoring history. The combination of a fuel efficient 2.0 litre 163 bhp HDi diesel engine and a 37 bhp electric motor is the optimal combination for a hybrid vehicle. The use of diesel hybrid technology also brings a range of other benefits such as silent operation when driving in electric only mode, peace of mind offered by the safety inherent in a four wheel drive vehicle and the possibility of choosing four different operating modes,  ZEV (Zero Emission Vehicle), Four-wheel drive, Auto and Sport.

The Peugeot 3008 Hybrid4 is designed to appeal to demanding, technophile customers who are in search of a rewarding and original vehicle.
