PEUGEOT has announced a new 48V HYBRID powertrain for the 3008 and 5008. The new powertrain complements the existing PEUGEOT electrified range, and couples a 136hp PureTech petrol engine with a 6-speed dual-clutch electrified gearbox that features an integrated electric motor which helps reduce fuel consumption by 15%.
This new powertrain takes the place of the PureTech 130 EAT8 offering and will soon be available on other models in the PEUGEOT range, including 208, 2008, 308, 308 SW, and new 408. PEUGEOT 3008 and 5008 models are first to benefit from the new HYBRID powertrain with first customer deliveries taking place in Summer 2023.
The combustion and electric motors can operate simultaneously or separately during routine driving to maximise efficiency, and drivers are informed via the PEUGEOT i-Cockpit® of which power source is being used. The HYBRID system enables 100% electric starting, manoeuvring, and driving at low speeds in congested areas when the battery charge permits. The PEUGEOT 3008 and 5008 HYBRID can be operated in 100% zero-emission electric mode for more than half of the time when travelling in metropolitan areas.
The new 48V HYBRID powertrain results in a drop in fuel consumption of 15% with these savings mostly being achieved during urban driving, while motorway efficiency remains unchanged. When the car is decelerating, the petrol motor shuts off completely, allowing the electric motor to generate energy to recharge the battery.
All aspects of the hybrid system are located under the bonnet, except for the 48V battery, which is installed under the front left seat of PEUGEOT 3008 and 5008.
The 1.2-litre PureTech petrol engine is a new generation of PureTech engines specially developed for optimal integration with hybridisation. Featuring a variable geometry turbo and Miller cycle operation*, it produces 136hp and 230Nm of torque.
The new electrified 6-speed dual-clutch transmission (e-DCS6 Dual Clutch System) without torque break is part of the Peugeot 48V HYBRID engine and was created specifically for hybrid systems. The ECU, inverter, and electric motor are likewise housed inside the gearbox, which optimises the vehicle's size and weight for better driving performance.
The permanent magnet synchronous electric motor, which is integrated into the gearbox, produces a maximum output of 21 kW (28 hp) and 55 Nm of torque. It helps the combustion engine consume less fuel by enabling the vehicle to be driven entirely electrically for low torque requirements. With the aid of the belt-starter, the engine provides the primary start for the combustion engine during deceleration and functions as a generator to recharge the 48V battery of the HYBRID system. The combustion engine is restarted using the accessory belt thanks to the 48V-powered starter, enabling quick, smooth starts.
The 48V Lithium-Ion battery is installed under the front left seat to ensure the full boot volume is maintained. It has a gross capacity of 898Wh and an available capacity of 432Wh. It is designed to maintain the same level of performance throughout the life of the vehicle and comes with an 8-year/100,000 mile warranty.
of distance travelled in electric mode at any one time or at the end of the journey.
With the new HYBRID drivetrain, PEUGEOT vehicles are fitted with a unique display built into the i-Cockpit®. The digital display shows the percentage of distance covered in electric mode at any given time or at the end of the trip, the amount of energy flowing through the system, the battery charge level, the operating status of the vehicle via a power metre (Charge, Eco, Power), and 100% electric driving (speedometer in blue).
