Peugeot HDi: Less Greenhouse Effect


 
Less Greenhouse Effect

The greenhouse effect is a natural phenomenon that facilitates life on earth, with the gas in the atmosphere such as CO2 absorbing the infrared rays given off by the sun. The greenhouse effect can change if the atmosphere contains too large an amount of CO2 that cannot be absorbed by photosynthesis: the planet's climate then heats up.

Carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions are directly proportional to fuel consumption, and since Peugeot HDi cars use around 20-30% less fuel, they emit around 20-30% less CO2 than an equivalent petrol car.

Peugeot HDi diesel engines represent major progress in reducing CO2 emissions from cars.
