PSA Peugeot Citroën tops emissions reduction in Europe

PSA Peugeot Citroën recaptured its first place standing in reducing emissions at end 2014 in Europe, with an average of 110.3g of carbon dioxide per kilometer, compared with an average of 123.7g for the European market. Since 2008, the group has gradually lowered its vehicle emissions by about 30g.


PSA Peugeot Citroën is proud of its commitment to finding practical solutions to environmental problems, citing the fact that more than 50% of its R&D budget is devoted to developing technologies aimed at improving the fuel and environmental performance of its vehicles.


The ranking is primarily the result of the OEM's engine downsizing strategy and the introduction of new PureTech 3-cylinder petrol engines, as well as the introduction of new-generation, fuel-efficient BlueHDi diesel engines. In 2014, nearly 30% of vehicles sold by the group emitted less than 100g of CO2.


Paired with these highly efficient petrol and diesel engines, many group models are low-carbon leaders in their category. Due to the fact that they represent a significant proportion of European sales, they contribute to an overall reduction in emissions.


"The outstanding reduction in CO2 emissions is the fruit of PSA Peugeot Citroën's advanced petrol and diesel engine technologies but also of its ongoing research to make lighter, more aerodynamic cars," says Gilles Le Borgne, executive vice president of research and development at PSA Peugeot Citroën. "The group continues to invest heavily in research and innovation, particularly in the field of plug-in hybrid technologies and new-generation electric vehicles."
