The Peugeot 5008.

By Gerry Murphy

Gowan Distributors Limited, Peugeot importers in Ireland, has announced the arrival of new engines and equipment enhancements on the Peugeot 3008 and 5008 MPV for 2016.

Active level two models now boast Peugeot’s stylish cielo panoramic roof and climate control as standard; whilst Allure level three models gain satellite navigation. The popular Peugeot 5008 MPV Active Family version now comes with full leather upholstery for easier maintenance to suit family needs.

New petrol and diesel Euro 6 engines have been introduced for 2016; Peugeot remains a European leader in highly efficient, low CO2, low consumption engine technology, today marketing 25 best-in-class engines across its range.

The Peugeot 3008 crossover, a former Irish Car of the Year winner, is the perfect choice for customers looking for excellent performance and a higher driving position. It comes as standard with a unique split tailgate and 3-position boot. Optional Grip Control technology (RRSP from €300), offers incredible traction even in snow and ice.

The 7-seater Peugeot 5008, a former Irish Family Car of the Year winner, is a stylish and flexible compact MPV. The popular Active Family model is equipped with a Peugeot Connect Video Pack with video screens set into headrests, complete with two Bluetooth headsets, to help keep little people occupied on long journeys.

Presenting more choice than ever for family motoring, engines on offer across both models now include Peugeot’s revolutionary 1.2 130bhp PureTech petrol engine with 6-speed gearbox, an International Engine of the Year 2015 category winner, with CO2 emissions from 115g on the 3008 and from 129g on 5008, qualifying for €200 and €290 annual road tax, respectively. With reduced consumption / CO2 (-18%) compared to a traditional 4-cylinder unit, over 200,000 units of this celebrated 3-cylinder petrol unit have now been produced in Europe, such has been demand in 2015.

The new Euro 6 1.6 120bhp BlueHDi diesel engine with 6-speed manual gearbox has been introduced, offering more power yet less consumption than its predecessor and qualifying for €190 annual road tax in the case of the 3008 (108g Co2), €200 in the case of 5008 (113g Co2). A highly efficient 6-speed fully automatic version of the same 1.6 120bhp BlueHDi engine emits just 108g and 112g CO2, respectively, remaining in the same road tax bands.

A new performance-driven 2.0 150bhp BlueHDi diesel engine, with emissions as low as 112g CO2 (€200 annual road tax) is now also available on the 5008 for 2016.

Both 3008 and 5008 are covered by a five year Peugeot manufacturer warranty and customers can now avail of up to €4,500 scrappage allowance or a €750 Peugeot customer reward, plus finance from as low as 2.9% on orders before December 31 during Peugeot Sensation Days.

Opel Combo-e Cargo

With numbers of electric cars on the increase by the day it is inevitable that electric vans would follow. Already there are a number on our streets and it makes sense that van owners and fleet managers would seriously consider them.

Opel is the latest brand to highlight their newest 100% electric van, the Opel Combo-e light commercial vehicle. Joining its Combo petrol and diesel engine siblings the zero-emission compact van does everything that the others do and has the same space for cargo.

Boasting a range of up to 275km from a single charge, the new Combo-e offers up to 4.4m3 cargo space and 800kg payload and is available in two lengths.

The 4.40m long Combo-e, which has the shorter wheelbase of 2,785mm and can carry objects up to 3,090mm long, offers payloads of up to 800kg and cargo volumes of 3.3 to 3.8m3. It has a towing capacity of 750kg.

The 4.75m extra-long XL-variant has a wheelbase of 2,975mm and a cargo volume of up to 4.4m3 that can accommodate objects up to 3,440mm in length. Six tie rings on the floor (with the option of four more at mid-height) help keep everything in its place.

Tucson regains its market lead

Hyundai Tucson Hybrid.

Hyundai Ireland is celebrating confirmation that the new Hyundai Tucson has regained its position as Ireland’s best-selling car.

Proving an instant hit since its arrival in December, the company says sales in January show the new Hyundai Tucson with a clear lead ahead of the second placed model.

Diesel remains very popular for buyers of the Tucson at 1,094 units of the total models sold in January but sales of the new Hybrid version is making an impact at 494 units.

“We are delighted to see the Tucson back at number one in the market, key to its success is its striking new design but also the ability of our dealer network to give honest advice to consumers as to the correct engine type for them,” said Stephen Gleeson, managing director at Hyundai Ireland

“Our overall market share performance (2,731 units – 10.84% of the market) is also satisfying given we are still waiting on deliveries of the all-New Santa Fe 7-seat PHEV, as well as supplies of the all new i20.”

Hyundai Ireland can confirm that despite current restrictions, the Hyundai dealer network is providing a full Click & Deliver sales service. For full details on how Click & Deliver works, log on to www.hyundai.ie.

Peugeot a perfect Partner

The Peugeot e-Partner.

Since its launch in 1996, the Peugeot Partner has been bought by more than two million customers in 100 countries. It has also won numerous awards including the International Van of The Year title in 2019.

It was the best-selling light commercial van in Ireland last year, capturing 6.91% share of the LCV market. Sales of the vehicle in January 2021 increased by 30% compared to January 2020, translating into an LCV market share of 10.63% month to date.

The model will soon be available with 100% electric power called e- Partner. Based on the platform as the regular Partner, the Peugeot e-Partner runs on a 100% electric engine with a maximum power of 100 kW and a maximum torque of 260Nm available from the start for immediate reactivity, without vibration, noise, gear shifting, odour, or CO2 emissions.

The electric drive train (electric motor, inverter and DC/AC charger-converter) is similar to the new Peugeot e-Expert. Much like the latter, the speed reducer has been adapted in order to fulfil the loading constraints inherent to the use of utility vehicles.

There are two body length and both versions (Standard and Long) are available with a lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 50 kWh, which provides a range of up to 275 km depending on the version, on driving profile.

Two types of on-board chargers are available to suit all uses and all customer charging solutions, with a 7.4 kW single-phase charger as standard and an optional 11 kW three-phase charger.

The charging socket, located on the left rear fender, means that the vehicle can be charged in from a standard socket, a reinforced socket or with a Wall Box and even on a quick charger.
