Peugeot Introducing New HYbrid4 Concept at Geneva: “5 by Peugeot”
16 February 2010
At the upcoming Geneva Motor Show, Peugeot will introduce the 5 By Peugeot concept—an application of the Marque’s HYbrid4 architecture (earlier post) in the large luxury vehicle segment.
A 2.0-liter HDi FAP 120 kW (163 bhp) diesel engine, mounted at the front of the vehicle, is combined with a 27 kW (37 bhp) electric motor at the rear. This provides the concept car with an overall maximum power of 147 kW (200 bhp). It also benefits from an electric-only mode at low speeds, four-wheel drive on demand, and low levels of fuel consumption and emissions (3.8 L/100 km /62 mpg US or 99 g/km of CO2, or 0 in ZEV mode).
HYbrid4 technology will be launched as standard on the 3008 from 2011.
