They make Peugeot vehicles among the most environmentally efficient models in their respective categories. Even more impressive is the fact that this performance has been achieved while ensuring the highest standards of driving pleasure, in keeping with Peugeot’s core philosophy.
The new versions are fitted with technically advanced three-cylinder PureTech and 1.6-litre THP four-cylinder petrol engines, and with ultra-low emission BlueHDi diesels, all are equipped with Stop & Start (S&S) technology.
PureTech engines: earlier in 2014, the 110hp and 130hp turbo engines were added to the PureTech family of next-generation three-cylinder petrol engines. 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.
BlueHDi engines: 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 the 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.
Meanwhile, Peugeot is continuing in its efforts to achieve its goal of 2L/100km (141mpg) by 2020, turning the spotlight on its innovative 208 HYbrid Air 2L Demonstrator at the Paris Motor Show in October.
