Peugeot?s 308 turbo-diesel receiving Stop/Start
Beginning in late 2010, Peugeot will include a mild hybrid stop/start system on its 1.6L HDi 308. This ?micro-hybridization? places the engine on standby when ever the vehicle comes to a stop (at a stop sign or a red traffic light, in a traffic hold-up, etc?) and then restarts almost instantaneously without intervention from the driver. The Stop/Start system produces a reduction in fuel consumption of up to 15 % while also eliminating any noise and vibration when the vehicles is stopped.
