Peugeot will demonstrate its new diesel hybrid, the 307 CC Hybride HDi (which we first mentioned last month), at the British International Motor Show that starts July 20. The diesel hybrid vehicle will provide a 30 percent improvement in fuel economy over conventional cars and 25 percent better economy over a petrol hybrid vehicle, according to Peugeot.
The 307 CC's engine is a 1.6-litre HDi diesel with a Diesel Particle Filter System and an electric power train. Supposedly, the car will get 70 mpg. Peugeot says the car's Stop & Start system ensures the standby status - possible as soon as the speed is below 37mph - and the restarting of the engine.
