Peugeot UK has opened reservations for four new plug-in hybrid models; two hybrid versions of the 3008 and two versions of the 508 series. Customers may now place their reservations online with a £500 deposit.
In details, the models are the 3008 SUV HYBRID, 3008 SUV GT HYBRID4, 508 HYBRID and 508 SW HYBRID. The cars join the company’s growing range of electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles, with deliveries starting January 2020 for all four models.
David Peel, Managing Director of Peugeot UK, said: “2020 will be a significant year for Peugeot, as we officially start our UK deliveries of our new generation of fully electric vehicles, alongside all-new plug-in hybrid variants.” He added that Peugeot continues to work towards the “promise of having an electrified variant across our entire model line-up by 2023”.
The all-new 508 HYBRID and 508 SW HYBRID are both capable of up to 39 miles of fully-electric driving. The new four-wheel-drive 3008 SUV GT HYBRID4 comes with a 220kW (300hp) plug-in drivetrain and will achieve up to 40 miles of electric range under WLTP tests.
The 3008 GT HYBRID4 is powered by a combination of a 147kW (200hp) petrol engine and two electric motors for a total power output of 220kW (300hp). The 3008 HYBRID, all-new 508 HYBRID and 508 SW HYBRID feature a 132kW (180hp) petrol engine that works alongside a single 80kW (110hp) electric motor on the front axle, for a combined power figure of 165kW (225hp).
All four of the models can be fully charged in under two hours using a standard 7kW Wallbox. The 3008 SUV GT HYBRID4 features a 13.2kWh traction battery, while the 508 HYBRID and 508 SW HYBRID come with an 11.8kWh battery.
The all-new plug-in hybrids attract a Benefit In Kind (BIK) rate for company car drivers of only 10% from April 2020.
