Introduced a hybrid Peugeot with a 680-horsepower gasoline engine and a 272-horsepower electric motor

Peugeot has unveiled its newest hybrid hypercar, the Peugeot 9X8, which will compete in the 24-hour race at Le Mans next year.

The Peugeot 9X8 hypercar is powered by a 2.6-liter bi-turbo V6 engine with 680 hp, which is part of the Peugeot HYBRID4 system, which also includes a 272 hp electric motor. The latter can act as a generator for charging a high-voltage (900 V) battery, which was developed by the French automaker in collaboration with another French company, Saft.

It is unclear how Peugeot will tweak the hypercar’s massive total horsepower to comply with the championship rules, which allows cars with a maximum output of 680bhp.

It is worth noting that Formula 1 race cars cover almost the same distance for the entire season.
