The 2010 Peugeot 3008 boasts of a new diesel hybrid drivetrain which can be powered using the diesel engine alone or by the electric motor alone. You can even combine the two powerplants for more power. It has a modular design so expect the technology to prominently figure across Peugeot’s entire line. Prototypes of the 2010 Peugeot 3008 are already being tested and it will be followed by the Citroen DS5 allowing the automaker to achieve CO2 emission reduction of 35% in the future.

The public got its first taste of the 2010 Peugeot 3008 when the Prologue HYmotion concept with almost identical features was shown during last year’s Paris Motor Show. The 2010 Peugeot 3008 itself will debut during the Geneva Motor Show. It will be powered by a 1.6-Litr HDi turbodiesel engine producing 107 horsepower and a torque of 177 pound-feet. A 2.0-Liter HDi diesel engine producing 148 horsepower and a torque of 251 pound-feet will also be made available. The good news is that mileage for the fuel efficient 3008 is set at 4.9 liters per 100 kilometer.

Those who just can’t get enough of the petrol-powered autos can opt for the three petrol engines; one with a 1.6-Liter VTi engine producing 118 horsepower and the other one with a 1.6-Liter THP engine producing 148 horsepower and a 1.6-Liter THP engine producing 154 horsepower.
