CMP/e-CMP : a modular and fuel-efficient platform
New PEUGEOT 208 sits on the PSA Group’s latest generation vehicle platform, CMP (Common Modular Platform). Dedicated to segments B and C, this new vehicle base complements the EMP2 (Efficient Modular Platform).
As its name implies, the CMP platform is adaptable in terms of dimensions and engine variants. Accommodating all power sources, it will enable customers to select their preferred type of power train, a traditional combustion engine (petrol or diesel) or an electric motor.
Economy was the watchword throughout the development phase. This new platform helps to limit new PEUGEOT 208’s CO2 emissions, due to:
reduction in weight (30 kg lighter vs. the F1 platform), improved aerodynamics (levelled floor-pan, electronically controlled air inlets), reduced roll resistance (Class A tyres, reduced suspension friction), power train optimisation (improved combustion output, down-sizing, reduced mechanical friction, transmission extension and generalisation of Stop & Start).
The CMP platform also provides for increased comfort and safety levels:
greater acoustic and thermal comfort on board, lower vibration levels,
driving aids normally reserved for higher market segments and unprecedented in the B segment.
New PEUGEOT e-208: e-motion
New PEUGEOT e-208 offers a lively, stimulating driving experience with its 100% electric engine, available from launch:
100 KW (136 bhp) electric engine developing 260 Nm of torque (available from 0 km/h) for instant reactivity,
silent engine, zero vibration,
technology display on central screen (real-time drive train functional display).
New PEUGEOT e-208 proposes three drive modes:
Eco: to optimise range Normal: optimum comfort for everyday use Sport: priority is given to performance and sensations, maximum power and torque (0 to 100 km/h in 8.1s).
Two braking modes are also available via the gear lever with appropriate battery regeneration:
Moderate, providing a sensation close to that felt when braking with a combustion engine,
Augmented, for controlled deceleration by means of the accelerator pedal.
New PEUGEOT e-208 offers the best thermal comfort on the market with:
a high-power heater element (5 kW) powered by the HV battery, a heat pump and automatic temperature control in the passenger compartment, providing the same comfort standard as in a vehicle powered by a combustion engine. Vehicle range is preserved due to improved power efficiency compared to conventional climate control, heated seats (according to version), programmable thermal pre-conditioning, controlled from touch screen or remotely by the MyPeugeot® smartphone application. Besides comfort, this function allows vehicle range optimisation (the set temperature is reached more rapidly during start phases) and enables the optimum battery functional temperature to be attained sooner.
Interior and boot-space are identical to the ICE version. The batteries, which take up a volume of 220L, are distributed under the floor pan in new PEUGEOT 208.
Hallmark of the PEUGEOT brand, new PEUGEOT e-208’s running gear has been optimised and specific technical solutions have been applied (optimum mass distribution). This enables new PEUGEOT e-208 to achieve dynamic performances on a par with the combustion engine version.
New PEUGEOT e-208 is fitted with a 50 kWh large-capacity battery enabling a vehicle range of up to 340 km, according to the WLTP (Worldwide harmonised Light vehicles Test Procedures) certification protocol and 450 km according to NEDC (New European Driving Cycle). Linked to the passenger compartment cooling system, fluid-cooled temperature control enables fast recharging, optimised range and increased life-span. This battery is guaranteed for 8 years or 160 000 km for 70% of its charge capacity.
Charging modes are flexible and adapted to everyday use. Three charge modes are possible:
using a conventional domestic socket or for a full charge in 16 hours, using a heavy-duty Legrand® Green Up™ socket, supplied complete with charging cable,
from a Wall Box, providing a full charge in 5 hours 15 minutes for the three-phase version (11 kW) or in 8 hours for mono-phase (7.4 kW),
using a dedicated public charging terminal: battery thermal regulation permits the use of 100 kW chargers, 80% of the charge being reached in 30 minutes.
