EFFICIENT GEARBOXES AND ENGINES

EFFICIENT GEARBOXES AND ENGINES

For PEUGEOT as an automobile manufacturer, commitment to the environment is absolutely essential, as long as driving enjoyment is maintained. PEUGEOT's engineers and designers have therefore invented and designed a range of efficient solutions.

PURETECH ENGINES

PEUGEOT's PureTech family of 3-cylinder petrol engines combines efficiency and cutting-edge technology. Chosen as engine of the year in its category in 2015, 2016 and 2017, this family equips the entire PEUGEOT range from the 108 to the 5008.

 

BLUEHDI ENGINES

Creator of the most efficient system on the market in terms of reducing polluting emissions, PEUGEOT affirms its dominance in terms of environmental efficiency. BlueHDi is the name of PEUGEOT's Euro 6 Diesel engines, which combine high performance and low emissions.

EAT6 AUTOMATIC GEARBOX

The EAT6Efficient Automatic Transmission 6 gearbox is a 6-speed automatic gearbox that optimises fuel consumption and driving experience. It has been designed to drastically reduce CO2 emissions while offering a high level of user comfort

 

 

EAT8 AUTOMATIC GEARBOX

This PEUGEOT automatic gearbox reduces fuel consumption by up to 7% thanks to improved efficiency with the extension of the Stop & Start function up to 20 km/h and the shift to 8 gears. It also saves weight and is incredibly compact.

 

STOP & START

With the Stop & StartEngine stop and restart system function, available on petrol and diesel engines, you'll combine environmental performance with driving pleasure!

 

Suitable for city driving, the Stop & Start function automatically switches off the engine whenever the vehicle comes to a halt, for example at a red light or a stop sign. When the driver wishes to continue the journey, the restart is instantaneous and smooth.

 

This technology has many advantages: better control of fuel consumption (-15% in dense urban traffic compared to a conventional vehicle), reduction of CO2 emissions (zero emissions during engine shutdown phases) and silence at a standstill.

 

In order to adapt to all driving styles, Stop & Start can be deactivated.

 

 

 

EMP2 and CMP PLATFORMS

Two platforms are available: the EMP2Efficient Modular Platform 2: PSA Peugeot Citroën's new-generation platform platform and the multi-energy CMP/eCMP platform are at the heart of the design and manufacture of the PSA Group's new urban, mid-range and top-of-the-range models, which provide in particular:

 

 

Launched on the PEUGEOT 308 in 2013, the EMP2 platform enables the production of the new PEUGEOT 3008/3008 Plug-in Hybrid and 5008 SUVs, the 508/508 Plug-in Hybrid, the 508 SW/508 SW Plug-in Hybrid, the Rifter, the Traveller/e-Traveller and the Expert/e-Expert. 

The CMP/eCMP platform is specifically for the manufacture of the 208/e-208 city car and the 2008/e-2008 compact SUV.

ELECTRIC

PEUGEOT is the only brand in the world to market a global sustainable mobility offer:

 

  • The PEUGEOT e-208 city car and the PEUGEOT e-2008 SUV
  • The e-Expert van
  • The e-Traveller MPV
  • The PEUGEOT e-LUDIX electric scooter
  • The range of electrically assisted bicycles for all uses (city, road or off-road), including the eC01, eLCO1, eT01, eM01, eM02 and eM03 models.
 

HYBRID

As a major player in every technological revolution, PEUGEOT is serenely tackling the energy transition with the conviction that technology is still and always at the service of motoring pleasure.

 

Plug-in hybrid technology draws on two sources of energy for getting around: it combines an electric motor with a battery that can be recharged and a petrol engine.

 

Because of this, you benefit from driving in 100% electric mode for short journeys and using the combustion engine for long journeys.

BATTERY RECYCLING

In line with its commitments to reducing the environmental impact of its end-of-life vehicles, the PSA Group has joined forces with SNAMSociété Nouvelle d'Affinage des Métaux (New Metals Refining Company), the European leader in the collection and recycling of batteries. The agreement signed at the end of 2015, as part of the partnership initiated with SNAM in France in 2012, guarantees the quality of the collection and recycling processes for the batteries of the Group's end-of-life electric and hybrid vehicles throughout its sales network and production sites in Europe.

 

The performance achieved by SNAMSociété Nouvelle d'Affinage des Métaux (New Metals Refining Company) reaches 70% efficiency of recycled mass for lithium-ion batteries in electric vehicles and 84% for Ni-MH batteries in hybrid vehicles. These rates are well above the thresholds of European regulations, which require 50% material recycling.

 

 

 

USAGE-BASED FUEL CONSUMPTION  

In order to provide its customers with better information, the PSA Group has made independent, certified calculations of real-world fuel consumption available. It has partnered with the NGO Transport & EnvironmentTransport & Environment: European environmental association specialised in establishing a sustainable transport policy. and France Nature EnvironnementFrance Nature Environnement: French federation of nature and environmental protection associations.. Together, they have defined a protocol for measuring real-world fuel consumption, which has been approved by the certification company Bureau VeritasBureau Veritas: Global inspection, certification and laboratory testing company.. This protocol predicts the real-world fuel consumption of vehicles travelling along a 57.3 mile route combining urban, rural and motorway driving. The vehicles tested travel on open routes in normal traffic conditions, with passengers and luggage. The use of air conditioning or heating is also mandatory. The routes selected have gradients representative of real-world usageThe figures provided are only a general guide. We make no representations or warranties of any kind, express or implied, about the completeness, accuracy, reliability, suitability or availability of the estimate, for any purpose. The test protocol is available on the PSA Group’s website: www.groupe-psa.com.. This allows Peugeot, a PSA Group brand, to be more transparent with its customers.
