Peugeot to launch 3008 HYbrid4 Limited Edition in Geneva

by -

At the upcoming Geneva Motor Show, Peugeot will begin accepting bookings for 300 numbered units of the 3008 HYbrid4 Limited Edition. It will be on sale in France for €41,500, and will also be available to customers in Germany, Austria, Belgium, Spain, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Portugal, United Kingdom, and Switzerland.

According to Peugeot’s press release, customers picking this version of the vehicle gets a special high-end finish and priority delivery. External cosmetic differentiation can be seen at the headlights, which will be smoked and feature a chromed LED strip. The car will be finished in pearl white paint, and will get chromed door handles.

Inside, customers get a two-toned leather trim and a full leather dashboard. All that cow hide are held together by Guérande-coloured overstitching. Of course, there’s that aluminium plate showing off to passengers where along the line of 300 limited units does your 3008 HYbrid4 Limited Edition belong.

The 3008 HYbrid4 is proclaimed by Peugeot as the world’s first full diesel hybrid vehicle. It has a 2.0-litre diesel engine up front sending 163 horses and 300Nm to the front wheels via a 6-speed automated manual gearbox.


Where the 3008 HYbrid4 differs from other hybrid vehicles in the market is that its combustion engine and electric motor have no mechanical connections with each other. The 3008 HYbrid4’s 37hp electric motor drives the rear wheels, making this a proper four-wheel drive.

Electronics ensure proper synchronizing in the operation of engine and motor. The system’s combined output is rated at 200hp peak, and the enviro figures stand at 3.8 litres/100 km, with 99 g/km of CO2 .

One of the key benefits claimed by Peugeot for its usage of this layout is that it frees the 3008 Hybrid4 from architectural constraints of having two mechanically linked motors. Passenger space is not compromised and there is no need for the engine room to be redesigned to accomodate a revised powertrain.

There was, however, a need to remove the torsion beam inherited from the 3008 and put a multi-link in its place to accomodate the rear-mounted electric motor, which is excellent!
