After PSA's announcement of taking things easy
on diesel hybrids
, it's at least good to know that they have decided to make the Start & Stop system available for the whole range of models. Nowadays, only certain versions of the Citroën C2 and C3 can be ordered with the Stop & Start system, a nifty fuel saver that shuts down the engine at traffic lights
or when stuck in a traffic jam. This accounts for a 10 to 15 percent reduction in fuel consumption and CO2
PSA has just announced that they will make the system available for their complete lineup and - even better - it will be made standard. Their target is to install the system in a million vehicles by 2011 and 1.6 million by 2012.
