Peugeot 5008 1.2 Hybrid. New engine, new automatic distribution


For engineers, adding a hybrid to a seven-seat car can cause headaches quickly. Unlike 3008 and 508, 5008 therefore deprives any version of rechargeable mains. Peugeot has not found a way to install a space-saving battery without leaving a horizontal row of rear-facing seats. But in order to reduce the CO2 emissions of this SUV that it is already installing, the Lions are now working on another solution. This time it will take a light hybrid structure, planned for 2023 and developed as part of a joint venture with Punch Powertrain equipment manufacturer. As with 3008, the model with this technology is only surprising in southern Spain.

Special hybrid light

The only label on the window quarters proves that we are not ahead of 5008 like the others.

From the outside, nothing seems to make a difference to conventional gasoline or 5008 diesel. Indicates the presence of a 0.9 kWh lithium-ion battery on the board. Does this ability seem too small for you? However, it is not far from what the real hybrid offers, such as the Captur hybrid or Arkana E-Tech which has 1.2 kWh. Even if the 48V hybrid proposed by Peugeot it will be lighter, so it may involve some 100% electrical operation, at low speeds, at short distances and depending on the battery charge. The main goal, however, will be to support the three-cylinder 1.2 PureTech, to achieve low revs and reduce fuel consumption by 20%. With a CO2 emission of between 142 and 154 g / km, this engine currently receives ecological penalties ranging from € 360 to € 1,386. The volume is expected to increase further in 2023… by the arrival of this hybrid.

A completely different type of direct infection

Automatic gearbox and converter and eight reports of Aisin origin will be left at the same time. The 21 kW electric car will surely be integrated into the innovative transmission line developed by Punch Powertrain and manufactured in France, at Metz. The argument has told you several times how it works, quite different from that of EDC, DSG or other DKGs., although it also has two handles. It will be linked here with the new generation 1.2 PureTech. At current 136 hp and 230 Nm, this three-cylinder will be equipped with Miller frequency to reduce consumption, time series instead of belt or even variable geometry turbo. But it is above all in the application that we will know if Peugeot was right to go to this special box. Knowing that the brand will also have to keep the prices competitive in a highly competitive environment, such as the one that will be offered by Renault in the future 7 Austral seats.
