Peugeot HDi - low consumption and emissions


In a bold move Peugeot has taken the initiative when it comes to reducing emissions.

Since late 2009, Peugeot has been progressively introducing EURO 5 standard engines across its passenger and SUV range for Australia.

The EURO 5 standard engines apply to models in the 207, 308, 3008 and 407. These engines will also apply to the soon to be released RCZ.

“For some time now, we have been aware, as have the rest of the motor industry that emissions are of a growing concern to motorists, both here and world wide,” Says Ken Thomas, General Manager / Director of Peugeot Australia, “which is precisely why all passenger and SUV vehicles in our range will have transitioned from EURO 4 to EURO 5 standards by the end of this year. Indeed a high proportion of our current model range is already available for sale with this advanced technology.”

Peugeot Australia are confident that by adopting EURO 5 standard engines in 2010, their customers will be ahead of Australian new vehicle emission targets for 2015 of 190 grams of CO2 per kilometre. Current Peugeot models offer an average of just 171 grams of CO2 per kilometre (based on a volume weighted average of all Peugeot vehicles sold in Jan-July 2010). Current average Australian new car emissions are 218 g/km.

Future Peugeot models such as the 508 will also embrace the EURO 5 standard engines and other models will feature “stop-start” turbo diesel technology. This not only lowers emissions but also delivers significant savings in fuel economy.

Currently, Peugeot offers ten model variations across the range, which deliver fewer than 135 grams of CO2 per kilometre which Mr. Thomas believes is proof that today’s Australian motorist is able to enjoy dynamic performance, style and eco-efficiency as benefits of the same vehicle.
