After the 5008, with which the police and gendarmerie were equipped last year, the French Ministry of the Interior received the first (395) Peugeot 3008 Plug-In Hybrid for the National Gendarmerie.
The hybrid SUVs will be used by patrol cars and will carry the Gendarmerie Nationale insignia.
This move by the French Ministry of the Interior proves that the Peugeot 3008 hybrid meets the standards of a demanding organization in terms of reliability. In addition, the 3008 was chosen for its interior. It has a welcoming cabin with high levels of ergonomics, so the crews will spend several hours in it.
The order is harmonized on the one hand with the electrification strategy of the fleet and on the other hand with the supply of vehicles made in France and at the same time offer the best possible performance.
With a combined power of 225 hp, 360 Nm of torque and a discreet approach when patrolling in electric mode, τα 3008 Plug-in Hybrid are a very good choice for their use as patrols of the French Gendarmerie. The 395 vehicles ordered have the following characteristics:
