To provide its clients with moe accurate information, PSA Groupe has access to an independent and certified measure of real-world fuel consumption. This initiative is in collaboration with NGO Transport & Environment and la fédération France Nature Environnement. Together, they have set up a protocol to measure the real world fuel consumption, validated by Bureau Veritas.
This protocol consists of measuring consumption in real traffic conditions, over 92.3km on different types of road: city, extra urban and motorways. Measured vehicles run on open roads with all the usual traffic conditions that arise in day to day life. During testing the vehicles carry typical luggage and passengers, whilst for greater accuracy our testers ensure that comfort features such as air conditioning are left on, just as they would be in the real world.
In addition to the traditional laboratory testing methods, PSA Groupe is leading the way on providing consumers with real-world fuel consumption data.
*This estimate is provided as a guide and for information purposes only and may vary depending on the actual usage conditions. The estimate is entirely separate from the official EU fuel consumption figures. It therefore has no general applicability. 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 Groupe’s website: www.groupe-psa.com.
