Cars with small size batteries usually don’t get too much love from electric car community.

That’s the case with the 3 kWh Peugeot 308 R HYbrid unveiled in Shanghai, although the French car looks does look sweet.

We believe that by introducing such a concept, Peugeot is indicating a future move to high performances plug-ins.

Clearly a breakdown with internal communications because they forgot to finish painting it.

10 years ago this would have been a 3 l turbo charged engine, no regen, no plug, minimum 170 gCO2/km. this is a step forward from 10 years back. I think it lacks ambition in 2015 though.

Toyota no longer has the most patetic plugin hybrid. Bravo!

I sure as heck that is 3 Kwh of usable battery because even at 4 miles per kwh that is only 12 miles. More realistic would probably be 3.5 miles per kwh so range would be about 10 miles. Now if that is total capacity then we’re talking about a range of probably 5 or 6 miles, which would be way worse than the PiP.

2 x 85 kW electric motors = 170 kW
It’s hard to believe a 3 kWh Li-ion battery can supply that much power. Some Li-ion cells can produce 10C but most are limited to 3C or maybe 5C. Tesla P85D gets 6C max (85 kWh x 6 = 515 kW = 691 hp). Even if Peugeot gets 10C that’s still only 30 kW !!!
