French car maker Peugeot is now taking orders from customers interested in its 3008 Hybrid4 – what the firm claims to be the world’s first full diesel hybrid car.
First deliveries are to be of an exclusive Limited Edition model of which only 300 are being made. Just 35 vehicles will be available in the UK.
The Hybrid4 combines a fuel efficient 2.0-litre HDi 163bhp diesel engine and a 37bhp electric motor – offering out of town fuel consumption of 74.4 mpg, and CO2 emissions of 99g/km on the Combined Drive Cycle.
Peugeot’s Limited Edition version includes dark tinted headlamps with integral chrome LED daylight running lights, a special Pearl White exterior body colour and chrome door handles.
Internally, the exclusive touches include two-tone leather trim, a fascia completely covered in leather and a numbered aluminium plate on the centre console. A full length panoramic glass roof and front parking sensors complete the extensive high-level specification.
The 3008 Hybrid4 range starts with a £26,600 model, while the price for the special Limited Edition model is £29,995 and exclusive UK customer deliveries start in October.
