This first project was created to meet the challenges of this new technology could pose to integrate it in the best possible way in the new car which was scheduled to debut in 2011, within the framework of technical regulation adopted in late 2009. "We developed this system throughout 2010 and perform an initial test on dyno early 2011" explains Bruno Famin. "In Peugeot Sport, we have a dynamic bench test the motor assembly-change-transmission . This is convenient since in the bank, the group works exactly like in the car. The hybrid feature is integrated in the drive train. Thus, we have to do tests to make changes throughout the year 2011 and thereby come to a head in September christening and first test session in October. "
