PSA Peugeot Citroën and Bosch Partner Up for New Diesel Hybrids.

joinedIn France, a partnership between PSA Peugeot Citroën and Bosch has been formed to produce new diesel hybrid technology, hitting showroom floors in 2011. The technology premiered at the 2008 Paris Auto Show, with concept cars including the Peugeot Prologue and Citroën Hypnos. The Hypnos CUV is a blending of a sports utility vehicle, coupe and sedan. Its environmentally conscientious design features the advance hybrid power train that is expected to achieve 200 horses and achieve 50 miles per gallon diesel. The Peugeot Prologue HYmotion4 will feature a similar power train, with a 2.0L engine, producing 198 horses and emitting only 0.4 grams of carbon dioxide per kilometer while the fossil fuel engine is running, and zero emissions in electric only mode.

Bosch will provide Peugeot with electronic systems and the electric motors needed to power their hybrid vehicles. They will also supply technologies such as anti lock brakes and electronic stability systems which are geared towards recovering and conserving the most energy. Bosch is supplying overall 30 years worth of hybrid experience, with over 350 employees working in the supplied technologies. Also included are the alternator technologies and overall integration of the components.

It is hopeful that this partnership will aid in engineering and optimizing the hybrid power train and energy recover systems, producing a vehicle with low carbon dioxide emissions. Both companies are brining their own expertise into the mix, which will hopefully provide a rapid production of newer hybrid technologies.

PSA Peugeot Citroën has formed other agreements in the past, including working with automakers Sevel, BMW and Toyota. Recently, Peugeot formed a mutual agreement with Mitsubishi. This agreement provides both manufacturers with technologies based upon Mitsubishi’s Outlander, outfitted with either Pergeot’s Diesel or Mitsubishi’s gas engine. Their agreement with each other now will be to work towards stepping up design and production of completely electric vehicles. Their hope is the production of a truly viable urban electric vehicle.

Bosch has teamed up with Denso and Johnson Controls to work towards better hybrid battery technologies. Their goal is to work with suppliers and provide aid and support through the global economic crisis, while working to be able to increase the use and production of highly efficient batteries for use in hybrid vehicles.

PSA Peugeot and Bosch hope to usher in a new era of diesel hybrid cars, that are more efficient and cleaner than anything similar. PSA Peugeot is focusing on diesel electric hybrids as a driving force in hybrid technologies, forming collaborations and partnerships with other experts in the field in order to develop a truly green vehicle. Bosch has been working on many different green technologies, including regenerative anti lock brakes and stability programs, as well as kinetic energy recovery systems and motors tailored to efficiency in electric and hybrid vehicles. Over all, the partnership between PSA Peugeot Citroën and Bosch will hopeful inspire other partnerships and usher in a new era of highly efficient diesel electric hybrids.
