Peugeot is adopting new hybrid powertrains developed by parent group Stellantis, and they'll be making their debut on the 308 and 408 model.

The next-generation HYBRID 136 e-DSC6 powertrain combines a 1.2-litre petrol engine with a new 6-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox incorporating a 25bhp electric motor and a 0.9kWh 48V Lithium-ion battery to deliver improved efficiency and extra torque at low revs.

The new Hybrid powertrain can operate more than 50 percent of the time in zero-emission all-electric mode during low-speed urban cruising, offering improved fuel economy of up to 15 percent.

Thanks to the CO2 reduction, the Hybrid powertrain has a reduced rate of Vehicle Excise Duty and a lower rate of Benefit-in-Kind (BiK) tax for company car drivers.

With the battery positioned up front, the 408 and 308 models retain all their interior space and have no compromise to boot volume.

The introduction of the new HYBRID 136 for 308 and 408 models gives drivers a wider choice of powertrains, which allows drivers to begin their journeys, make manoeuvres and travel at low speeds in urban traffic using only the electric mode.

On the 308, this new powertrain will be available for the Active, Allure and GT trim levels. On 408 models, the HYBRID 136 e-DSC6 powertrain will be available on the Allure and GT trim levels.

Prices for the 308 hatchback start from £29,040 and for the 308 SW estate model from £30,240. The 408 HYBRID is available from £32,585.

Prices correct as of 08/04/2024 and are subject to change.
