The world's first full diesel hybrid, the Peugeot 3008 HYbrid4, is now available for pre-order, with prices and specifications having been announced.
Peugeot's HYbrid4 technology offers low CO2 emissions with high fuel efficiency with no compromise to performance, offering four driving modes: Auto, ZEV (Zero Emission Vehicle), Sport and 4WD.
The technology also results in the Peugeot 3008 HYbrid4 benefiting from reduction in ownership costs, through fuel economy, reduced Vehicle Excise Duty and Benefit in Kind duty, strong residual values and London Congestion Charge exemption.
The Peugeot 3008 HYbrid4 has also just been named Best SUV in the What Car? Green Car Awards for 2011.
Chas Hallett, Editor-in-Chief at What Car? commented on the award for the Peugeot 3008 HYbrid4: "The world’s first production diesel hybrid is the best hybrid the What Car? team has driven. The joint power sources work together seamlessly and emit only 99g/km of CO2. This means the car is exempt from both road tax and the London Congestion Charge. The SUV sector continues to be popular, and we can see a waiting list for the Peugeot growing very fast."
Morgan Lecouper, Marketing Director commented: "Peugeot has long paved the way in diesel engine development and HYbrid4 is at the fore of automotive technology. Having the 3008 HYbrid4 being recognised in this way by What Car? is an honour and one we are extremely proud of."
With the Peugeot 3008 HYbrid4 limited edition having sold out, two versions are available, a 99g/km CO2 at £26,995 and 104g/km CO2 at £28,495.
