The Peugeot engineers have been working on it for quite a while now so that it can be publically presented at the Frankfurt Motor Show next month. It's all about the new Peugeot 208 Hybrid FE – the incredible new car that Peugeot has produced together with the French oil company Total. Undoubtedly, the new model was inspired from the 908 HDI FAP prototype.

The Peugeot 208 Hybrid FE features and amazing petrol-electric hybrid powertrain that incorporates the efficiency of a innovative 3 cylinder engine with that of an electric motor and battery which are actually the same as those used for Peugeot Sport's Endurance program.


The powertrain is entirely driven by an exclusive engine management and software reaching the aim of increasing the overall competence by 10%.
Hybrid car lovers should get ready for something new as the level of performance disclosed by the company includes amazing engine characteristics. The new vehicle should be able to reach up to 62mph in just 8.0 seconds and just the fabulous amount of 49g/km, regarding the CO2 emissions. Maxime Picat, director general of Automobiles Peugeot has claimed that the aim of the 208 Hybrid FE project was to reach 2l/100km, using 22 lb-ft of torque , furthermore, this is an overall objective set together with Peugeot's Partner Total.

Apparently, the aerodynamic properties have also been upgraded up to 25% for the CdA while the total weight was reduced with 20%. Remarkably, Peugeot is very proud to let everyone know that this vehicle is capable of saving 25% of the energy on one driving phase.

It is well known that Peugeot has been continuously trying to reduce the fuel consumption by collaborating with Total and improving CO2 emissions at the same time. For all the 2013 models, the company has announced that the average emissions of CO2 have been significantly reduced from 121.5g/km to 116.3g/km.
This new vehicle overall appearance is fluid, the permeability being reduce by 40% by the floating grille which was modified in order to allow the engine to more efficiently cool. The sides of the vehicle have also been changed in such a way as to enhance the aero performance.

Special tires designed by Michelin, the Tall&Narrow types, have been used for making Peugeot 208 Hybrid FE even more aerodynamic and hasty. Might be the fact that the models that were used are equipped on 19" alloy wheels featuring carbon aerodynamic flaps contribute to the general efficiency and evenly distributed aerodynamics of the car.

Presented as one great deal of a product, the new 208 Hybrid FE is an ambitious, yet, efficient project that will take Peugeot to another maturity level regarding hybrid car manufacturing. Able to reach 62 mph in just 8 seconds, the new vehicle is eagerly expected by the dealers all over the world and we bet that the regular Peugeot customers are just as eager to admire next month at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
