Peugeot to develop another hybrid car solution

It was just yesterday that we told you about PSA Peugeot Citroen introducing its Hybrid Air technology that could reduce fuel consumption by as much as 30 per cent (see article): and now the French carmaker is at it again.

During its Innovation Day in Paris, it also revealed a next-generation mild hybrid technology that could reduce fuel consumption by 10-15 per cent compared to an equivalent engine: and that could also cut CO2 emissions by around 15g/km compared to its e-HDI technology.Peugeot Mild Eco Hybrid System

Known as the Eco Hybrid system (pictured) it will be compatible with both petrol and diesel engines and combines a 10kW electric motor with a 48V lithium-ion battery. Its electric motor alone drives the vehicles at speeds up to 12mph; and can also provide additional power when the vehicle accelerates.

According to PSA Peugeot Citroen, the goal is to offer customers a vehicle that will consume significantly less fuel with a technology that can reach a greater number of drivers because of its comparatively low costs.

The PSA Peugeot Citroen Eco Hybrid system will appear in vehicles from 2017 onwards and is a co-development with Bosch, Continental and Valeo.
