Peugeot Novelties At Geneva Motor Show 2014

|   Sunday, March 02, 2014
Peugeot reveals its stand of the 84th edition of the Geneva Motor Show by means of a double offensive, both in terms of product and technology.
Peugeot marks this event with the latest appearances from the youngest range in its history: the new Peugeot 108 and Peugeot 308 SW, a new 1.2 liter petrol engine PureTech with 3 cylinders, a new Blue Diesel Hybrid HDi engine (with technology to reduce emissions down to Euro 6 standards) and, last but not least, the concept 2008 Hybrid Air that confirms the performance reached in the technical and environmental areas.


Also, the concepts RCZ R, 308 R and 208 T16 Pikes Peak, are living proof that emotion prevails in Peugeot's commitments.
During the summer of 2014, the Peugeot 107 gives its place to the new Peugeot 108, despite the impressive number of units sold of over 800,000. 
After completely renewing the vehicle offer on the B and C segments, Peugeot launches at Geneva its new city car, reviving the dynamic segment A, which currently represents over 10 percent of the European market.

Compact (3.47m long) and perfectly suited for the city, the Peugeot 108 offers a hatchback version with 3 and 5 door plus a convertible version, the 108 TOP!.
The new Peugeot 308 is positioned in the heart of the strategically important C market segment (more than one third of the European market). With a total of over 46,000 units ordered until this moment (the end of January 2014), of which over 40 percent are for the higher trim, the new 308 hatchback launched in autumn 2013, and has already achieved the ambitious target on which it had its eyes on.

From April, the new 308 range will be complemented by a second configuration. Completely redesigned, keeping only the name of its predecessor, the new Peugeot 308 SW offers a strong alternative, able to satisfy the basic requirements for its segment in terms of volume, space and modularity.

Onward to the engines. The exceptional turbocharged gasoline-powered PureTech e-THP, with 3 cylinder and displacing 1.2 liters, develops 130 hp and boasts a level of CO2 emissions below 109 g / km, while the new version Blue 1.6litri HDi with 120 hp is associated with a manual 6-speed gearbox. It consumes just 3.2 l / 100 km (combined cycle) and has a CO2 emission level of 85g / km - a record for its segment.

Associating the first SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) with particle filter additive technology reduces pollutants emitted by diesel engines with up to 90 percent. With fuel consumption and CO2 emission levels optimized about 99.9 percent of particles are actually eliminated.

BlueHDi technology already complies with the Euro 6 standard and will gradually equip all diesel engines of the brand.

Undoubtedly, the Swiss public will want to admire the 208 T16 Pikes Peak: 25 years since Ari Vatanen's first victory in the famous American race aboard the 405 T16.

On board the legendary 208 T16 Pikes Peak we will find this beauty: a V6 twin-turbo, 3.2 liters, 875 hp for just 875 kg, reaching 100 km / h in 1.8 seconds! Sebastien Loeb broke the record on the 20 km climb in 8 minutes 13.378 seconds. A true adventure it was, human and mechanical expertise blending to denote the brand's taste for excellence.
