PSA Peugeot Citroën has announced that teams at its Française de Mécanique facility have assembled the 300,000th example of the Turbo PureTech three-cylinder petrol engine.

The engine is fitted on the Peugeot 208, 308, 2008 and 3008, the Citroën C3, C4, C4 Cactus and C4 Picasso, the DS 3 and the DS 4. It cuts fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions by an average of 18% in comparison to the naturally aspirated EP engine.

In June 2015, it was named Engine of the Year in the 1L to 1.4L category at the International Engine of the Year Awards. The accolade recognises both the technology and the performance of this market-leading powerplant.

Production of the Turbo PureTech engine began in March 2014 at the Française de Mécanique plant and a total of 6,450 units are now manufactured weekly by four teams.

"Our PureTech petrol engine is a key factor in the success of the models it is fitted on," explained Denis Martin, operational director Europe. "Given current trends in the petrol/diesel model mix, the performance of this excellent three-­cylinder engine gives PSA a competitive edge that our front-line teams can leverage to win market share."
