CUTTING EDGE FEATURES REVOLUTIONARY MICRO-HYBRID TECHNOLOGY
FOR EXTRAORDINARY FUEL SAVINGS
Creating innovative technology to lower fuel consumption and cut emissions is one of mankind’s greatest challenges. To address this challenge, Peugeot has introduced the Micro-hybrid system that features e-HDI technology. Thanks to e-HDI, a new generation Stop & Start system automatically switches off the engine whenever the vehicle becomes stationary, for example, at red light or stop sign via an advance Reverse Alternator system, shutting down and restarting the vehicle becomes quick and particular smooth, allowing the driver to continue his journey seamlessly. The result of these technologies working together is up to 15% lower fuel consumption and up to 5g/km less in harmful CO₂ emissions.
How does Peugeot’s Micro-hybrid technology work?
- On Eco mode, Peugeot’s e-HDI system automatically shuts down the vehicle’s engine when stationary.
- Essential system at work like the audio system and the blower remain on.
- Once the system recognizes the driver’s input like a flick of the gear shift lever or a slight top on the accelerator, the system re-starts the engine.
DIESEL PARTICULATE FILTER (DPF)
FOR CLEANER, SAFER ENVIRONMENT
Apart from allowing for much better fuel consumption, Peugeot’s innovative Micro-hybrid system works in conjunction with a Diesel Particulate Filter System (DPF) that eliminates harmful emissions like no other system before it. A “world’s first”, DPF completely eliminates harmful particulates of whatever size found in unclean fuels by collecting them in filtration system and eventually “burning” them with increased temperature within the said filter. The result is up to 5g/km less in CO2 emissions – easily among the best emission numbers in the world amongst diesel engines currently in operation.
AN EXCEPTIONAL ENTERTAINMENT AND NAVIGATION EXPERIENCE AWAITS YOU
