Fully Charged drives the diesel-sipping Peugeot 3008 HYbrid4

The latest episode (number 29!) of Robert Llewellyn's plug-in-centric show Fully Charged has hit the Internet showing Llewellyn taking the diesel Peugeot 3008 HYbrid4 for a spin.

The Peugeot 3008 HYbrid4 is the world's first production through-the-road diesel hybrid vehicle. Priced from £26,995 ($41,567 U.S. at the current exchange rate) in the UK, the 3008 HYbrid4 seems a decent value considering the mid-size crossover cranks out 200 horsepower, while returning a stunning 61.9 miles per gallon (U.S.) on the European combined driving cycle and spitting out CO2 emissions at a rate of only 99 grams per kilometer. Most importantly, the 3008 HYbrid4 is not some sort of dreamy concept; it's on sale now.

So, what's the diesel-sipping Peuegot 3008 HYbrid4 like to drive? With thirteen-plus minutes of through-the-road hybrid vehicle action and a bit of hydrogen discussion awaiting you after the jump, we'll stop wasting your time and let Llewellyn take you on a dream ride.
