Peugeot to new EU CO2regulations: Bring it on!

While Volkswagen and other carmakers have been complaining bitterly about the new European CO2 emissions limits and the penalties for not meeting them, at least one company is saying "Bring it on!". Peugeot is reminding people that their 308 HDi 90 emits only 120g/km of CO2. The 308 is a C-class hatchback similar in size to a Ford Focus equipped with a 90hp 1.6L turbodiesel. On the EU highway cycle it achieves 61.9mpg (U.S.) which is far better than any similarly-sized car in the US market. Peugeot is well on its way to meeting the new rules and their German competitors better get with the program or it's going to cost them a bundle.

  • Peugeot 308 HDi 90 only emits 120g/km of CO2
  • Already over 100,000 examples produced
  • Priced from only £11,995 on-the-road

With stories on CO2 emissions filling the media, customers purchasing one of Peugeot's new 308 HDi 90 models can feel happy they are driving a family car that emits only 120 g/km of CO2.

The Peugeot 308 HDi 90 is one of the newest members of the Peugeot 308 range which was launched in September this year, and has already seen over 100,000 models produced.

The 308 HDi 90 is available in both three and five door versions and in two trim levels. It is powered by a 1.6 litre HDi diesel engine which produces a maximum power of 90 bhp and a maximum torque of 161 lb ft at only 1750 rpm. This state of the art diesel engine combines both great driveability with low fuel consumption (74.34 mpg – Extra Urban drive cycle) and very low CO2 emissions of 120g/km.

With fuel prices steadily rising, understanding the costs involved in running a car become more important. Therefore purchasing a new Peugeot 308 HDi 90 with its low emissions (Vehicle Excise Duty of only £35) and its ability to travel over 800 miles on a tank full of fuel, makes perfect sense.
