Powertrain Groups at the Forefront of Technology

The Groupe PSA presents new engines and gearboxes that are always more efficient and respectful of the environment

  •  A new strategic step in reducing emissions with innovative emissions reduction systems.

  • New internal combustion engines that are ever more efficient and environmentally friendly.

  • An expanded offering of manual and automatic transmissions to meet fuel economy requirements while maintaining the best level of driving comfort.

    Groupe PSA has always been a forerunner in virtuous technology deployment, and the company has proven know-how in reducing pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. It is also focused on a sustainable mobility approach. The PSA Group made clean technology a strategic pillar of its R&D policy and its sales offensive.

    This is exemplified by Groupe PSA’s new Diesel engines presented, which already meet the requirements of the future Euro6.d regulations that come into force in 2020. In particular, as of 2017, they will meet an RDE compliance factor of 1.5 instead of the required level of 2.1 for NOx emissions, which is three years ahead of the regulation deadline.

    These new Diesel engines benefit from advances made in their emissions reduction system, the BlueHDi technology, making them even more effective in treating NOx. This technological evolution will be inaugurated with the new 1.5 BlueHDi 130 S&S engine.

    As part of its continuous drive to improve performance in reducing emissions from its engines, the PSA Group has also developed a particulate filter, or GPF (Gasoline Particulate Filter), to treat particle emissions from direct injection petrol engines. This technology offers 75% higher efficiency in terms of the number of particles captured.

    From the end of 2017, the particulate filter (GPF) will be rolled out to all PSA Group direct injection petrol engines, on the 3-cylinder turbo engine families, as well as the 4-cylinder models, regardless of the model. These engines are being upgraded on this occasion to increase performance and output, and thus increase fuel economy even further.

    All of these developments in engines are combined with an expanded range of gearboxes, including a new 6-speed manual transmission and an 8-speed automatic transmission (EAT8) to more significantly increase fuel economy, while providing the best level of driving comfort.
