HOW TO RECHARGE YOUR HYBRID CAR?

09 June 2020


PEUGEOT plug-in hybrid vehicles have been designed for easy and practical recharging. The charging flap is located on the vehicle’s left rear left wing*. Once your car is charged, you can store your charging cable in a place specifically set aside under the floor of the boot.

When charging your plug-in hybrid vehicle, a series of coloured lights will indicate the charging progress. Vehicle charge time will depend on the maximum power available from the electricity source, capped at the power of the On Board Charger** if this is lower.

 To have full all-electric driving capacity, PEUGEOT plug-in hybrid vehicles offer you various charging solutions.

*Symmetrical with the fuel flap

**On board charger power – standard 3.7kW, optional 7.4kW.

PRIVATE CHARGING  

Recharge your plug-in hybrid car at home or at your workplace. * You will need to buy an accessory cable if you wish to charge from a domestic socket, as we do not recommend this as a daily charging solution. * 0-100%: 5 hours charge time at 2.3kW on a domestic socket (known as Mode 2 charging) * Charging from a Type 2 (Mode 3) dedicated electric vehicle charging point is the recommended way to charge your vehicle on a daily basis.  This cable is provided as standard with the vehicle. * 0-100%: less than 4 hours charge time @ 3.7kW with the standard on board charger * 0-100%: less than 2 hours charge time @ 7.4kW with the optional upgrade on board charger And, we’re offering a FREE WALLBOX to customers ordering an a new Plug-in Hybrid ! Terms & conditions apply.  Speak to your local retailer for further information.

PUBLIC CHARGING STATIONS    

The majority of public charging points in the UK are Type 2 sockets, which will charge your vehicle at the accelerated charge times listed, depending on the power of the charging point and your on board charger.

ECODRIVING TIPS TO ADOPT

DRIVE SMOOTHLY
To avoid increased energy consumption, tailor your driving to avoid jerking, as well as frequent and rapid acceleration and braking.

On motorways, reduce your speed to a minimum since high speeds quickly reduce the range of your hybrid vehicle.

USE THE BRAKE MODE

Instead of continuously using the brake pedal, use the engine braking system, which generates energy and charges the battery when braking and decelerating.

USE PRE-CONDITIONING

While your vehicle is charging, take advantage of pre-conditioning to limit the energy used by the heating or cooling systems when you begin driving. Heating or cooling the car while charging doesn’t reduce its range.

MAINTAINING THE TYRES

It is essential to look after your tyres regardless of your car’s engine type. Plug-in hybrid cars reduce energy consumption, but unsuitable or poorly inflated tyres greatly increase it.
