We are now one step closer to hybrid electric diesels.

As many of you here know, the BMW Vision is a hybrid diesel but it's also not a production car.

Now Peugeot has introduced a full diesel hybrid, the 3008 HYbrid4.

(A full hybrid, as opposed to a mild hybrid, is one that can run on electric power as its sole source.)

The Peugeot won't be on the road until next year I suspect but it appears that they found a lower-cost way of integrating hybrid and diesel technology so that the buyer won't be paying a premium for hybrid AND a premium for diesel.
