Peugeot Le Mans 908 Hybrid4


The system provides a power boost of 60kW (80hp) during the seconds that follow its redelivery. Recovered energy (500kJ between two braking phases) is stored in lithium-ion batteries before being automatically fed to the rear wheels under acceleration (no “push to pass” function). It will be possible to run in electric mode only along the pit-lane, and it is this mode that will be used for the car’s homologation.

Following the world premiere of the 908 HYbrid4 in white livery at the Geneva Motor Show, Peugeot Sport will turn its attention to meeting a target it has set for the newcomer. This is to run the car at the official pre-Le Mans 24 Hours test day at the French circuit on April 24. Achieving this ambitious objective will depend on how well the team’s preparations for Le Mans go with the new 908, and also on how the 908 HYbrid4 performs during its maiden track test at the end of March.
