Peugeot 208 HYbrid FE will be presented at the next Geneva Motor Show 2013. This technological demonstrator arrived on the front of the stage with impressive numbers: 49 g of CO2, and releases the performance worthy of the name with 8 seconds to go from 0 to 100 km/h.Il is a project carried out in collaboration between Peugeot and Total.
FE means both Fuel Economy and Fun and Emotion. The basis of the Peugeot 208 HYbrid is a version 1.0 VTI 68 ch, with the new engine 3 cylinder PSA. The objective is to reduce the weight of 200 kg 208: tremendous value, especially for a vehicle that has already been designed with significant weight savings compared to the former Peugeot 207. These are subsidiaries of Total Group, CCP Composites and Hutchinson, who will bring their expertise in lightweight materials, poly-carbonates, and composite materials.
Peugeot 208 HYbrid FE hybrid traction chain is inspired by the competition. It includes a manual driven, electric machine and a battery.
This demonstrator contains so many technological innovations, in relief of the chain of traction, aerodynamics, but also in fuels and lubricants.
The Peugeot 208 HYbrid FE shows that a non-rechargeable hybrid can reach down to the bar of the 2 L / 100 km. But the Hybrid Air presented recently and announced on the new Peugeot 2008 system is much closer to mass production and marketing.
