New EURO 6 Emission Standard: Groupe PSA’s passenger cars are all certified

All Peugeot, Citroën, DS, Opel and Vauxhall passenger cars are approved under the new EURO 6 emission standard effective on 1 September 2019:“EURO 6d-TEMP-EVAP-ISC”.

All the certified vehicles are immediately available for customers.

Thanks to sound technological choices made in anticipation of the regulations – SCR “Selective Catalytic Reduction” and GPF “Gasoline Particulate Filter” –, Groupe PSA is once again at the forefront for implementing the more stringent standards.

Nicolas Morel, Executive Vice President for Quality and Engineering at Groupe PSA, confirms: Groupe PSA was one of the few carmakers ready last year for the first step of WLTP[1] and able to deliver all its range to its customers after 1 September 2018. One year on, Groupe PSA is on schedule again and has punctually type-approved all passenger car models in due time. Our technological choices to treat pollutant emissions allow us to offer our customers compliant and environmentally friendly vehicles.”

Euro6 emission standard: stricter criteria for measuring passenger car emissions

The targets for the measurement of passenger car emissions become tougher again on 1 September 2019, with the following additions:

Real Driving Emissions, or RDE Test:

This test defines the admissible deviation between the polluting emissions (NOx, PN) measured on vehicles in real-world driving conditions and the emissions measured in the new certification procedure. The requirement is a coefficient of 2.1 for NOx emissions. Groupe PSA models are approved. Moreover, 80% of Groupe PSA passenger cars are already compliant with the next regulation step EURO 6d-ISC” to be implemented in January 2020 with a required coefficient of 1+0.43 of measurement dispersion.

EVAPorative emissions or EVAP test:

EVAP is the measurement of the amount of hydrocarbons that evaporates from a car’s fuel system over a period of 48 hours. This primarily concerns the fuel tank ventilation of petrol cars.

In Service Conformity or ISC Test:

ISC means that automobiles up to five years old and already on the road must continue to comply with all emissions standards.

Groupe PSA’s vehicles are already certified according to the new Euro6 emission standard

These tests have already been completed for all passenger car models and the vehicles are certified accordingly. Customers can order all models from Groupe PSA’s brands (Peugeot, Citroën, DS, Opel and Vauxhall) today and can be sure that their new car already meets all current standards and can be delivered without delay.
