Peugeot Hybrid4 Cars – Being More Than ‘Solely a Diesel’ Means Lowest Bik for Users Monday 21 November 2011 PDF Print customers of our HYbrid4 cars will not incur the 3% diesel surcharge and benefit from the 10% threshold for personal BIK taxation Ahead of deliveries of the award-winning Peugeot 3008 HYbrid4, the world’s first diesel electric car, there is now clarity to the BIK (Benefit In Kind) taxation that applies to the diesel-electric HYbrid4 vehicles in the Peugeot range, that will include 3008, 508 RXH and 508 Saloon. Phil Robson, Fleet Sales Director, said: “The clarification by HMRC that customers of our HYbrid4 cars will not incur the 3% diesel surcharge and benefit from the 10% threshold for personal BIK taxation is excellent news. It is the final piece in the HYbrid4 jigsaw and means that both individuals and businesses will benefit from the best possible environmental and fiscal position.” “As a company car owner Peugeot’s HYbrid4 means low fuel costs, low emissions, low BIK and for the company lower Employer National Insurance contributions, alongside an allowance for the company to offset 100% of the list price, in the first year, against its taxable profits. Let’s not forget, in addition the 3008 HYbrid4 delivers 74mpg, 200 BHP, four wheel drive and electric mode, a truly unique and innovative vehicle in the market.” Peugeot’s new HYbrid4 models represent a great opportunity for businesses and individuals to actively reduce their impact on the environment without the compromises normally associated with a low emission cars. Ends Notes to editors Peugeot HYbrid4 uses the world-first diesel-electric hybrid layout presently using a 2.0-litre HDi 163 diesel engine to propel the front wheels and a 37bhp electric motor the rear wheels. This modular ideal is first applied to the accomplished Peugeot 3008 Crossover and will be soon followed on the 508 RXH and then the 508 Saloon HYbrid4. The benefits to the customer / owner are many; the use of diesel hybrid technology also brings a range of other benefits: High performance combined (200bhp) with excellent drivability Freedom and simplicity of use with the possibility of choosing four different operating modes: Auto, ZEV (Zero Emission Vehicle), Four-wheel drive and Sport Silent operation, when driving in electric only mode Peace of mind offered by the safety inherent in a four-wheel drive vehicle Environmental efficiency with CO2 emissions from 99g/km and the potential for 74mpg To obtain high resolution downloadable images of the Peugeot range of low-carbon vehicles please log on to the Peugeot Press website: www.peugeotpress.co.uk (Newspress passwords apply) Press Contacts www.peugeotpress.co.uk Andrew Didlick \ +44 (0)24 7688 4309 Andrew.email@example.com Mobile +44 (0) 7836 362859 Steven Fahey \ +44 (0)24 7688 4216 firstname.lastname@example.org Mobile +44 (0) 7748 704219 Kevin Jones \ +44 (0)24 7688 4215 email@example.com Mobile +44 (0)7880 786596 Craig Morrow \ +44 (0)24 7688 4261 firstname.lastname@example.org Mobile +44 (0)7747 764745 Janet Brace \ +44 (0)24 7688 4257 email@example.com Mobile +44 (0)7798 607896 This press release was distributed by ResponseSource Press Release Wire on behalf of Peugeot in the following categories: Men's Interest, Motoring, Transport & Logistics, for more information visit https://pressreleasewire.responsesource.com/about.
