Peugeot 208 Hybrid FE Concept official photos emerge

by SpeedLux

The company has released official photos of the Peugeot 208 Hybrid FE Concept which will premiere at IAA in Frankfurt in September.

There are speculations that hint that the concept will be 440 lbs (200 kg) lighter than the base 1.0-liter VTi version which weighs 2,149 lbs (975 kg). It looks a little different than the regular model as it has received a rear diffuser to improve air flow, aero-optimized 19-inch alloy wheels wrapped around in narrow tires, along with cameras which have replaced the conventional exterior mirrors.

The hybrid module (including 90-cell lithium-ion battery pack) is tailored from the 908 Hybrid 4 Le Mans and generates 40 hp (30 kW) sent via a five-speed semi-automatic transmission. It would be able to travel on electric power for up to 12 miles (19 km). The electric motor will work together with the 1.0-liter engine taken from the base model which has been increased to 1.2 liters and has also received more efficient combustion thanks of the Atkinson cycle.

The car should be capable of accelerating to 62 mph (100 kmph) in eight seconds and in terms of furel efficiency, it will return 135 mpg UK (112.4 mpg US or 2.1 liters / 100 km) with CO2 emissions standing at just 49 g/km.
