All PEUGEOT passenger cars WLTP certified
The entire PEUGEOT passenger-car range is available for customers for the entry into force of the new WLTP protocol on 1 September.
Thanks to the technologies available on the PureTech and BlueHDi engines launched in September 2017, PEUGEOT-brand vehicles are in compliance with the NOx, CO and particulate matter thresholds of the new regulation, which enters into force on 1 September 2018.
The PSA Group decided to invest ahead of time in the most efficient pollution control technologies, including the selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system, introduced back in 2013 on BlueHDi engines, and the gasoline particulate filter (GPF) on PureTech direct-injection petrol engines.
The new WLTP protocol (WLTP being short for Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicle Test Procedure) will become mandatory on 1 September 2018 for all passenger cars sold in the European Union. The WLTP test is based on realistic vehicle driving cycles resembling as closely as possible real conditions of use in terms of distance, average speed, stopping times and temperature. These tests produce certified fuel-consumption and emissions figures that are more representative of customer usage and the exact configuration of the vehicle. In addition, test-bench results for CO, NOx and particulate emissions are verified in real conditions on the road.
PEUGEOT also continues to offer motorists an estimate of the real-use consumption of its models consistent with a protocol developed with two NGOs, Transport & Environnement and France Nature Environnement, and results certified by Bureau Veritas.
