• Peugeot 308 Diesel-Hybrid Concept to be unveiled in Frankfurt

Peugeot will unveil in September at the Frankfurt Auto Show a 308 Diesel-Hybrid Concept Car.

By the combination of a diesel engine with an electric engine, the fuel consumption is improved with 30%. This means that the new 308 Diesel-Hybrid Concept will have a fuel consumption of only 3.4 liters per 100 kilometers (or 69mpg). The CO2 emission will be 90 gram per kilometer.

The 1.6 litres turbo diesel engine will deliver 109 hp and a peak torque of 260 Nm. It will work in conjunction with a 22hp electric engine.

The new Concept is a preview version on a hybrid sedan that will be unveiled in 2010.

Why can’t these small diesel cars be made or shipped to America? This seems like a logical step prior to transitioning to the electric vehicle.
