Peugeot 908 Hybrid4 diesel hybrid racer takes to the track

Alex Goy

After adopting diesel for its Le Mans racers Peugeot is taking a leaf out of its own 3008 MPV's book and throwing an electric element in there too. Yup, the French lion's 908 HYbrid4 racer is going diesel hybrid for next year's Le Mans races. It's been out publically testing at Estoril, but expect it to be out much more often.

However, we doubt that the system used in the 3008 is too closely related to the 908's. It will be interesting to see the differences between the 908 and Toyota's petrol hybrid effort...
