2016 – PEUGEOT 308 R HYBRID

producn version of the 308 R Hybrid. Very similar to the concept with the same name that was shown at the Shanghai Show in April, the hybrid has the signature of Peugeot Sport.Manufactured on the basis of the conventional 308 EMP2 platform, the hybrid features full-wheel drive and three engines. A gasoline engine of four cylinders 1.6 THP with 270 cv and 330 Nm, the same of the 308 GTI, appearing coupled to a manual transmission of six speeds and counting on the aid of two motors lithium-ion batteries with 3 kWh , with 115 hp each, one on each axle. The total power is 500 hp and 730 Nm of maximum torque.The power-to-weight ratio is 3.1 kg / hp. It has three modes of driving: ZEV (100% electric), Hybrid (which comes into action when the battery is not enough and in which the batteries need 15 km to recharge) and Hybrid Sport (which uses the maximum resources of all the engines). Sport mode is activated via a button on the steering wheel. In addition, it comes equipped with a ‘launch control’ function. The batteries charge in 30 minutes at a quick charging point.It comes equipped with 235/35 R19 tires and has 80 mm wider tracks. The weight distribution is on the order of 60/40. The set allows an acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h in 4 seconds and reaches 1,000 meters in 22.5 seconds. Announces CO2 emissions of 70 g / km. The 308 R Hybrid has an electronically limited top speed of 250 km / h. In the interior, highlight bucket seats in brown leather, perforated leather steering wheel, anthracite coverings, red decorations and specific ‘R’ logos. The version has ventilated discs of 380 mm with forceps of four pistons in the front and 290 mm rear.

2016 – PEUGEOT 408

After updating the look of the 308, Peugeot renewed the style of the 408. Like the hatch, the sedan brings a new front, inspired by the latest models of the French brand marketed in Europe. The headlights with LED daytime running lights, the front grille and the bumper are new. At the rear, the lanterns gained a new array of LED lights, and few changes were made inside, just a new steering wheel and steering column with height and depth regulation.The 408 comes in Allure and Griffe versions. The Allure configuration features the 2.0 16V Flex engine of up to 151 hp at 6,000 rpm when fueled with ethanol and maximum torque of 215 Nm at 4,000 rpm coupled to a six-speed automatic transmission. The Griffe comes out of the factory with the 1.6 THP engine, producing up to 173 hp at 6,000 rpm and a maximum torque of 240 Nm at 1,400 rpm, coupled to a six-speed automatic transmission.The Allure automatic version will be sold for $ 75,990, and has six airbags, stability control (ESP), four-wheel disc brakes with brake distribution, rear parking sensor, fog lamps, power locks, electric-hydraulic steering, bizona digital air conditioning, rain and light sensors, autopilot, driver’s seat with height adjustment and leather and fabric trim, steering column with height and depth adjustment, power windows on four doors, multimedia center with a 7.0-inch touchscreen, 17-inch alloy wheels and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.

The 408 Griffe adds front parking sensor, aft camera, sunroof, leather seats and 17-inch wheels with diamond finish. Its suggested price is R $ 86,990. The sedan arrives at resales with a three-year warranty.2016 – PEUGEOT EXPERTThe new Peugeot EXPERT and Citroën JUMPY, presented by Carlos Tavares, World President of the PSA Group, at the Sevelnord plant in the Hauts-de-France region will enable the PSA Group to consolidate its leadership in the light commercial vehicle market (VUL) in Europe, where it registered a 19.5% share in 2015. They will also allow the acquisition of new markets in other regions, so as to give an international dimension to the Group’s technical and commercial know-how. The Peugeot EXPERT and Citroën JUMPY models will be marketed in Europe from June 2016.The new VUL line was developed to meet new customer expectations, especially those related to growing urbanization and the explosion of e-commerce activities.With its unprecedented compact version of 4,600 mm, which completes a standard range of 4,950 mm and a length of 5,300 mm, and its maximum height of 1,900 mm, the new Peugeot EXPERT and Citroën JUMPY are particularly adapted for urban use. The arrival of new features such as busy hands-on access, cabin modularity, high instrument panel, 3D-connected navigation with touchscreen tablet and voice control make life easier for users. They will also benefit from efficient powertrains to achieve best in class consumption levels.

These utilitarian versions complement the offer of the Private Vehicles segment, with the Peugeot TRAVELER and Citroën SPACETOURER models, presented at the Geneva Motor Show, which will enable PSA to increase its market share in the vans and minivans.To follow the Group’s ambitions in the VUL segment, PSA recently created a Business Unit dedicated to these activie presentation of the models, Carlos Tavares stated: “The new Peugeot EXPERT and Citroën JUMPY are vehicles of achievement that will contribute to the achievement of the objectives of our profitable growth plan to Push to Pass.”

2015 – PEUGEOT 2008 HYBRID AIR

PEUGEOT 2008 Hybrid Air is a hybrid that unites in an innovative way a gasoline engine with a compressed air propulsion system, which can reach up to 34 km / l of fuel. Thanks to a smart control center, the 2008 Hybrid Air meets the driver’s commands in three different modes:• Air: active up to 70 km / h (only the energy contained in the air cylinder makes the vehicle move forward);

• Petrol (PureTech 1.2l three-cylinder engine, 82 hp);

• Combined: when the mechanism with compressed air contributes as boost in accelerations and resumes.The consumption of 34 km / l corresponds to a reduction of 45% of the fuel consumption in the city of a compact car compared to an equivalent gasoline engine. Emissions, in turn, are about 30% lower than those of a gasoline-like model. Depending on the topography and driving style of the driver, approximately 60% to 80% of the trip in urban routes can be driven in “Air” mode.ybrid Air technology is the Brand’s response to the need to meet global challenges in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and pollutants. In relation to other hybrid systems, the Hybrid Air’s main differential lies in the energy storage unit in the form of compressed air. Brakes and decelerations are used to recover energy and benefit from the “Air” mode.The advantages do not stop there: the vehicle does not need additional battery, like the conventional hybrids. This preserves the vehicle’s internal space (both for occupants and luggage) and contributes to reducing the emission of pollutants into the environment. Because it is essentially mechanical, the system has easier and more economical maintenance. Its components are made from recyclable materials and have small dimensions.The energy cylinder containing compressed air is arranged under the body in the central tunnel. Another low pressure reservoir is located at the height of the rear suspension cross member and serves as an expansion vessel. Finally, the hydraulic group consisting of an engine and a pump is installed under the hood in the transmission. The latter is composed of an automated epicyclic train to manage the distribution between the two energies. It replaces the mechanical gearbox and offers the possibility of automating the gearshift.

The combustion engine is a three-cylinder gasoline of last generation. It has the most modern technologies: optimization of weight and compactness through the greater possible integration of the components, reduction of the internal frictions through the use of a special coating, thermal management for a faster temperature increase, among others. OPERATING PRINCIPLEThe computer manages the two power sources – gasoline engine and compressed air reservoir – to achieve the best possible performance depending on driving conditions. The passage between the three modes available – “Air”, “Gasoline” and “Combined” – occurs completely independently of the driver.In “Air” mode, only the energy contained in the compressed air cylinder causes the vehicle to move forward. As it expands, the air occupies an increasing space in the energy reservoir and displaces a corresponding volume of oil. The oil is an energy vector that feeds the hydraulic motor coupled to the epicyclic train. With the engine running off, the vehicle travels without consuming gasoline or emitting CO2. This mode has its best expression in urban circulation.

In “Gasoline” mode, only the PureTech 1.2l three-cylinder petrol engine (82 hp) powers the vehicle. This propeller benefits from the latest technologies to obtain, compared to the previous generation, a reduced weight of 21 kg, friction reduced by 30% and with an evolved thermal management to achieve the optimum operating temperature more quickly. This mode is particularly adapted for roads, with speed stabilized.In the “Combined” mode, the petrol and hydraulic engines work together to move the vehicle, in adjusted proportions depending on the situation, in order to achieve optimal consumption. Flexible, the Hybrid Air can power the hydraulic motor from two sources. As long as the amount of energy contained in the compressed air tank is sufficient to meet the driver’s demand, the hydraulic motor runs from that source. Then, if necessary, it can be fed directly by the hydraulic pump. This mode is especially intended for transient phases in the city and on the road (uprooting and acceleration).The power supply can be recharged in two ways. In decelerations (when braking or taking off the accelerator foot), the reduction of speed is not obtained by applying the pads on the brake discs, but by the compressive resistance of the air in that accumulator.

The alternative is to recharge through the reconnection of the thermal engine – in this situation, a part of the energy produced by the gasoline is used to compress the air. In both cases, the maximum energy capacity of the accumulator under pressure is reached quickly, in just ten seconds.It is a world-class technology that is accessible to all and which already has important awards in Europe thanks to its low consumption and low environmental impact. From simple concept, this technology becomes very attractive for all the markets of the planet.2016 – PEUGEOT TRAVELER i-LABPeugeot will present at the Geneva Motor Show the new Traveler, its nevan. Accompanying the novelty will be an i-Lab version, which proposes an insight into the future of business travel. The version is essentially characterized by connectivity services. The four individual seats, arranged face to face, are positioned around a 32-inch touch screen. It is also equipped with a Wi-Fi hotspot, cloud access, Bluetooth, induction charging sources and a virtual reality helmet. The version also has specific decorations, especially leather seats and Alcantara. The engine is a 2.0 hp BlueHDI with 180 hp, coupled to a six-speed automatic transmission.

Covers – Manufacturing Only Quality Covers

Car Covers is a company that is known throughout the world for their expertise in making  covers, or any vehicle covers for that matter. They produce top quality covers for any vehicle, ensuring that they are always kept safe and secure from any sort of harm. Vehicles need to be covered when stored outdoors. The truth is, s that are kept indoors, in garages could do with covers too, as they still collect large amounts of dirt and dust. However, it is particularly important for s that are parked outside. When left outside, even for just one night, the  is exposed to the harsh elements of nature, which do not treat s too kindly. They will, in their many different ways, completely wreck a , so that in no time at all, it is hardly recognisable as the glorious  you purchased not so long ago. Covers understand and appreciate all of this, and therefore set about the task of protecting s. They have spent over ten years now, researching various fabrics, determining the protective properties that they own and manufacturing quality covers. Across the world, the climates and weather conditions vary, and therefore the type of protection s need will vary too. For this reason,   Covers have a wide range of covers for virtually every different type of weather and storage condition. There is bound to be a cover for every person and his vehicle. Covers have the customer’s interest in mind when they make their covers. They specially make different covers, not just one cover that will do for everything, as this will work out cheaper for the  owner. A person living in Phoenix, does not need to pay for a cover that is extremely waterproof. Instead he can purchase a cover that will shield his vehicle from the sun’s dangerous rays, with minimal water resistance, at a more reasonable price.

This is why people love  car  Covers. Not only do they produce quality products, but they show e and concern for the customer, and are extremely fair. They also have excellent after sales service, if there should ever be a problem for some reason. They will not resat until your case is solved and you are fully happy with the outcome. Covers will custom make your carcover. The cover will be made specifically for you and your , and all you specifications. Custom covers are the best fit possible as the cover is snug against the . This maximizes the protection offered as there is no chance of anything unwanted from worming its way in. Custom covers also look the best as the fit gives a classy, sleek impression. Living in the modern world is a wonderful thing. We have so many cool things to assist our day to day lives. Showers and electricity.Cell phones and laptops. Subways and personal transportation.When it comes to your personal transport whether it is a car, truck SUV or motorcycle, protecting it is important. They make cell phone covers and laptop covers so why not a car cover? Your vehicle is an investment too, typically considerably more expensive at that. In today’s modern world you can purchase a vehicle cover for just about any make model or type. Whether it is for your car, SUV, truck, limousine, tractor, ATV, boat or another recreational vehicle, it can be protected. Why do you ask? I say why not. Dirt, dust, rain, hail, UV rays, bird droppings, tree sap, snow, and ice are all good reasons to protect your investment with a quality car cover or another vehicle cover.

Dirt, dust, bird droppings and tree sap can derail your efforts of washing your vehicle. Hail can damage the finish with a dimpling effect. UV rays are the worst, they can actually fade the paint and interior surfaces of your car, especially if you live in the Southwestern portion of America such as Arizona, New Mexico and Southern California. Snow and ice are just plain time consuming. If your vehicle is covered, you can hit that snooze button a few times before getting up for work. There are many covers on the market today and some are better than others. I personally like the Elite brand. They have efficient economic choices as well as middle of the road and top of the line. Your climate should help you determine which will work best, or if you keep your vehicle in a garage. If you do a simple economy cover will suffice. This type is also appropriate for light outdoor use. If you keep your vehicle outdoors in a moderate climate a heavier duty cover would suffice, something with waterproof protection and UV treatment. If you live in a 4 season climate with heavy winters, a 4 layer cover would be best. The 4 layer cover is top of the line with a fleece lining for extra protection. This cover would work anywhere but I would strongly recommend it as the only choice if you have intense winter weather. If you live somewhere were you have high precipitation the Tyvek covers are extremely waterproof and may be the best for your needs. To purchase a cover, shop online. You’ll have an excellent selection and plenty of sites to choose from. Be sure to watch for sales and also investigate the return policy’s as well as shipping and handling fee’s as some sites offer free shipping. You can use a search engine such as Google or Bing to locate a source. Just plug in car cover or truck cover etc. to get results on who’s selling them. Do your homework and you’ll find what you need for the best deal.

Ways of Getting New Cars at Affordable Prices

There are some customers who look around for new car prices and are on a budget and the manufacturers change their automobile prices as per market supply factors, conditions, demands and competition and introduction of new cars. However, up-to-date information about the prices of vehicles is very important. There are lots of automobile manufacturers in the market. Cars are classified by price range such exotic, economy, luxury, mid-range and premium; by manufacturers such as Audi, Volvo, BMW, Volkswagen, Buick, Toyota, Cadillac, Suzuki, Chevrolet, Subaru, Daewoo, Scion, Ford, Saturn, Honda, Saab, GMC, Porsche, Hyundai, Pontiac, Homer, Plymouth, Infiniti, Nissan, Jaguar, Mitsubishi, Jeep, Mini, Kia, Mercury, Land Rover, Mercedes Benz, Lexus, Mazda and Lincoln; by market segment such as trucks, sport utility vehicles, vans, sedans, wagons, coupes, sport, convertibles, crossovers and luxury vehicles. Most of the times, new cars are bought by dealers who make some changes in prices by offering discounts. You can also find new car prices over the internet, where there are most of the car dealers having websites with cars and their images and lots of finance options. Those who are looking for new cars for sale; there are some models that come with one of the best features. The BMW 3 Series is two-door coupe and convertible with four-door wagons and sedans. It is powered by M3 V8 engine which is good for producing 414 horsepower at 8400rpm and goes from 0 to 60mph in the time range of four seconds. The Honda Accord is quite dashing, plush and powerful as compared to previous model and is equipped with V6 engine that generates 271 horsepower. The Accord comes with variable cylinder management system that provides great combination of brisk acceleration and fuel efficiency.

Some people say that nothing in this world comes close to to the feeling of driving off the lot with a brand new car. The polished exterior and spotless interior, the brand new smell, the absolutely cool ride-these are just some of the unforgettable experiences that new car owners can get. However awesome, some new autos roll out of the showroom without some essential accessories. Most of the time, dealers don’t include these must-have accessories with the sale because they are trying to maximize their profits. Obviously, your new auto will look better if it has some of these accessories and we’ll provide you with some tips on them. There are four must-have auto accessories: floor mats, car cover, cargo liners, and dust shields.

Floor Mats

The first commandment for vehicle owners should go like this: Thou shall keep the interior clean! There’s a very simple solution to this issue: floor mats. Any owner will tell you that the interior will easily get dirty without floor mats. Aside from stain-proofing your car’s interior, floor mats also protects the carpeting from wear and tear. Replacing damaged carpeting can cost a fortune, so floor mats are really a worthy investment for your vehicle.

Car Cover

Sun-dried bird droppings, caustic decaying leaves, dust, moisture-these can cause damage to your vehicle’s finish if you keep your it outside. Don’t let your new paint job turn into a mosaic of dirt stains. Protect it from damaging elements and get a cover. What if you have a garage, do you still need a cover? A garage is one place where dust abounds. Leave your car inside a garage without a cover and you’ll risk the finish getting damaged.

Cargo Liners

The trunk is where you keep all sorts of packages, tools, etc. As a result, the trunk can harbor dirt. And dirt is not just a simple thing-it can damage the trunk’s interior. Most car makers fit their cars with cargo liners. Some cars, however, don’t come with cargo liners. If your car isn’t fitted with a cargo liner, then you may consider spending the money to get one.

Dust Shield

Sometimes, unexpected things happen when you drive. Unexpected and messy. Like a bug slamming into the window and getting smeared on windshield. Bug smears are nasty and difficult to remove. A dust shield is needed if you want to protect your windshield and hood from nasty smears. Auto makers don’t offer dust shields as standard equipment. So you really need to spend money to get a dust shield. There are lots of new cars for sale available in the market with the dealers such as Mazda 3 that comes with shiny cover, sport tuned suspension, affordability, turbocharged engine, practicability and balance of speed. The Mazda 5 is a two-door roadster which is equipped with two-wheel drive system for outstanding agility and balance and provides equal weight distribution. One of the most popular cars is Volkswagen Golf that comes with luxurious cabin, clean new engine and is the safest, most luxurious quietest and smoothest cars in the market. It is a great combination of style and elegance with features like auto-dimming mirrors and parking sensors. You can easily find lots of cars online for sale and the best place to find them is over the internet that offers online solutions for automobile issues. It is the finest and first place to buy and sell vehicles with cheaper prices. There are lots of things you can find online such as model, manufacturer, private sellers, designs, distribution channels, authorized dealers, colors along with videos, prices and images of desired cars. Those who are looking for cars online for sale, it is an enjoyable experience as you just have to sit in front of your computer for couple of minutes and walk up with a car of your own budget and choice.
