What it means to drive a hybrid car? And a plug-in? It is definitely something different compared to the experience of being behind the wheel of an ordinary car powered by gasoline or Diesel. The state-of-the-art hybrid technology represents a new way to drive because, unlike mild hybrid and full hybrid, allows you to travel in mode 100% electric for several tens of kilometers, combining the best of two worlds, the one of the drive 100% electric with the auto thermal.
From a few weeks Peugeot has started the delivery of the first models electrified its range, including the SUV 3008 HYBRID4 and 508 fastback and SW HYBRID.
For these versions is plug-in hybrid, the automaker has decided to make available up to four different driving modes that allow you to meet the mobility needs in function of the context in which you are located and the performance that you require on the car.
3008 HYBRID4 and the 508 HYBRID (both fastback and SW) are equipped with a selector rocker on the dashboard through which you can select these different modes ...
ELECTRIC traction is 100% electric, and can reach a maximum speed of 135 km/h. This mode is the one with which you always start the car, in order to maximize the use of sources of energy not derived from oil since the first km. Clearly, the driver may decide to adopt the other mode by simply acting on the rocker button in the dashboard. In this mode, the SUV 3008 HYBRID4 can go up to 59 km, while 508 fastback and the SW 54 and 52 km, respectively.
The HYBRID mode is the one that uses the best combination between gasoline engine and electric or electric, in the case of the 3008 HYBRID4, seen that in total engines), depending on the type of road that you are following and the requests of the driver in terms of performance. To offer the most efficient solution thanks to the synergistic action of the motors which are activated individually or simultaneously to achieve the best combination of energy, in function of the context of driving.
That SPORT is the mode that enhances the performance of the car, providing maximum power expressed by the group the engine, with the aim of enhancing even more the guide. The system then calls upon all the HP and Nm that is capable of delivering, for the purpose of ensuring performance of great thickness. In the case of the SUV 3008 HYBRID4, for example, the horses overall are well 300, and the pair combined maximum 520 Nm; this means you can count on an acceleration of 0-100 km/h is covered in just 5.9 seconds (the same time of the sports coupe RCZ-R a few years ago to do a comparison) and reach a maximum speed of 235 km/h (where permitted). In the case of the 508 HYBRID where the electric motor assists the petrol PureTech is only one, the horses overall are still 225 and the pair combined maximum of 360 Nm for a maximum speed of 230 hours and a 0-100 covered in 8.3 seconds.
mode 4WD (exclusive of the 3008 HYBRID4), it activates the traction on all 4 wheels to widen even more the range on low grip surfaces. It represents an important novelty in the range of the SUV of the Leone appreciated in the Italian market. A solution that enhances even more the behavior of the road car, which also counts on the rear suspension of multilink. In parallel mode 4WD, the driver can also activate the function HADC (Hill Assist Descent Control) in order to face safely the downhill is very steep, and slippery surfaces thanks to the automatic control of the speed.
On the 508, instead, in the case of the presence of the Adaptive Suspension Control suspension damping electronic), the COMFORT mode enhances even more the qualities of the flagship acts on the level of absorption of the suspension.
