Introducing Peugeot's take on efficient Euro 6 engines
Peugeot has risen to the challenge of re-defining greener motoring by revealing new Euro 6-compliant versions of its popular models. Packed with technically advanced three-cylinder PureTech and 1.6-litre THP four-cylinder petrol engines, and with ultra-low emission BlueHDi diesels.
Peugeot’s vehicles are among the most environmentally efficient models in their respective categories. Every engine is coupled with Peugeot's very effective, innovative third-gen Efficient Automatic Transmission 6 (EAT6) transmission. And even more impressive is the fact that this performance has been reached while ensuring the highest standards of driving pleasure, in keeping with Peugeot’s core philosophy.
The introduction of these new engines has reduced the average weighted CO2 emissions of Peugeot's European range to 111.2g/km, as measured at the end of May 2014. That’s compared with 115.1g/km at the same point a year ago, making Peugeot one of Europe's cleanest automakers and putting PSA Peugeot Citroën at the top of the Corporate Average Fuel Economy ranking.
Also, Peugeot is to continue in its efforts to achieve the goal of 2L/100km (141mpg) by around 2020, with the spotlight firmly on its innovative 208 HYbrid Air 2L Demonstrator at the latest 2014 Paris Motor Show.
At the beginning of 2014, the 110hp and 130hp turbo engines were added to the PureTech range of next-gen three-cylinder petrol engines. They made a debut on the Peugeot 308, which was voted 2014 Car of the Year.
It was equipped with a standard six-speed manual transmission; the Peugeot 308 1.2-litre PureTech 130 S&S is now available with a new EAT6 six-speed automatic gearbox. A brand new paddle-shift option is now available as part of the Driver Sport Pack. This will be the first time ever that the Peugeot Stop & Start technology has been combined with this new automatic transmission for a petrol engine.
The Peugeot 308 1.2-litre PureTech 130 S&S EAT6 achieves fuel consumption of 57.6mpg and 114g/km of CO2 - an improvement of 45g/km over with the previous 1.6-litre VTi 120 model. The 308 range will expand to include the 1.2-litre PureTech 110 S&S turbo by the end of the year, boasting consumption of 61.4mpg and 105g/km of CO2.
Using the most efficient diesel emissions-control technology on the market
The 1.6-litre BlueHDi 120 coupled with a manual six-speed gearbox helped Peugeot 308 and 308 SW set new segment records for fuel consumption earlier this year. They achieved 91.1mpg and 88.2mpg respectively, delivering CO2 emissions of just 82 and 85g/km. Now this engine is launched in more vehicles:
After initially unveiling the 2.0-litre BlueHDi on the 508, then on the 308 and 308 SW, Peugeot has installed it in other vehicles in the large C and D-segments:
Since the end of 2013, Peugeot has been using the most efficient emissions-control technology on the market for all its diesel models. The Brand’s exclusive combination of Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) and a particulate filter with additive reduces emissions from new-generation diesel engines by up to 90% and optimises CO2 emissions and fuel consumption, all while eliminating 99.9 % of particulates.
