PEUGEOT is presenting the 400 hp hybrid Idea 508 PEUGEOT SPORT ENGINEERED on the upcoming Geneva motor present. A spinoff of the PEUGEOT 508 HYBRID sedan, the idea delivers excessive efficiency with low emissions.
PEUGEOT SPORT was given the duty of creating this new mannequin line. For this idea car, PEUGEOT SPORT drew upon the expertise gained with two electrical idea vehicles:
The ultra-efficient 208 HYbrid FE (2013) recorded GTi-level performances with emissions and gasoline consumption that had been decrease than the smallest ICE available on the market on the time. Following a spread of optimizations, a CO2/km rating of 46g was achieved, with a efficiency of zero to 100 km/h in 8s.
The 308 R HYbrid Idea (2015) laid declare to absolute efficiency ranges: 500 bhp whole energy output, 730 N·m torque and zero to 100 km/h in four seconds.
The PEUGEOT SPORT engineers united the efficiency of three engines (a PureTech 200, an 110 bhp electrical motor on the entrance and a 200 bhp motor on the rear), two energy sources and four-wheel drive to offer spectacular in-gear acceleration, creating a most torque of 500 N·m. These traits place the Idea 508 PEUGEOT SPORT ENGINEERED on an equal footing with a 400 bhp ICE car.
Braking design is tailor-made to match efficiency: 380 mm ventilated entrance disks fitted on aluminium dishes activated by 4 sliding pistons (38 and 41 mm in diameter) mounted on a hard and fast caliper.
The PEUGEOT 508’s chassis was particularly modified to decrease the car physique peak, embody new damping legal guidelines and to widen the entrance observe by 24 mm, the rear observe by 12 mm. The precision steering has additionally been improved to offer further effectivity and heightened pleasure on the wheel.
The 11.eight kWh battery ship actual gasoline effectivity with an all-electric vary of of as much as 50 km (31 miles) (WLTP).
In Sport mode, thermal and electrical energy sources could be aggregated as much as 190 km/h.
