Orders open for four Peugeot PHEVs

Peugeot has opened its order books for four new plug-in hybrids, as it pushes electrification acros its core line-up. Customers can now place reservations for the 3008 Hybrid, 3008 GT Hybrid4, 508 Hybrid, and 508 SW Hybrid.

The 508 Fastback and SW plug-in hybrids are capable of covering up to 39 miles on a single charge, while the 3008 GT Hybrid4 offers 40 miles on electric-only power.

The latter is powered by a 1.6 litre petrol engine and two electric motors, producing a combined 300hp (220kW). Performance for the flagship PHEV is good, with the 0-62mph time covered in just 5.9 seconds. The 40 mile electric range is possible thanks to a 13.2 kWh battery, which helps return CO2 emissions of 28 g/km.

The 3008 Hybrid and 508 PHEVs are backed by an 11.2 kWh battery, which powers a single electric motor. Combined with a 1.6 litre petrol engine, the combined power output is 225hp (165kW).

All four models can be charged in less than two hours on a 7 kW charge point, and with a good electric range for PHEV models, they benefit from BIK rates for company car drivers.

Peugeot's four plug-in hybrids come as the pure-electric e-208 is due for launch, and the French manufacturer has confirmed an e-2008 crossover is due in the near future. The Hybrid PHEVs are able to be ordered now, with deliveries starting in January 2020.
