BlueHDi from Peugeot

peugeot bluehdi diesel engines

Clean, powerful and efficient diesel engines

BlueHDi is the name given to Peugeot’s latest generation of fuel and environmentally efficient Diesel engines.

Generated from a world-famous diesel heritage and innovative, automotive engineering excellence, BlueHDi complies with Euro 6 emission standards to deliver a driving experience rich in power and performance but with exceptional fuel economy and CO2 emissions. 

BlueHDi engines meet Euro 6 standards thanks to Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) and Particle Filtration processes.

A three stage cleansing process specifically targets the pollutants of diesel combustion, removing hydrocarbons and carbon monoxide, reducing nitrogen oxides by up to 90% and eliminating 99.9% of particulates:

  • Stage One - the oxidation catalytic converter eliminates the HC and the CO2, transforming them into water (H2O) and carbon dioxide (CO2)
  • Stage Two - the SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) transforms the nitrogen oxides (NOx) into water and nitrogen (N2), which is the main constituent of air (78%), due to the addition of AdBlue® (mixture of urea and water)
  • Stage Three - the Particulate Emission Filter eliminates 99.9% of the particulates by number

BlueHDi delivers the cleanest diesel engine possible and exceptional fuel economy of up to 91mpg with CO2 as low as 82g/km.


HDi past and present

At the end of the 90's, Peugeot identified the need to treat the fine particulates emitted by diesel engines to bring them down to the level of petrol engines and launched the Diesel Particulate Filter (FAP) - a world first - on the 607 in 2000. From 2007, Peugeot made FAP standard across its entire range.
