‘Peugeot 301 reduces fuel consumption, CO2 emissions by 25%’
Pan Nigeria Limited said it remained passionate about the all-new Peugeot 301, boasting that the car’s engine would lead market after winning the 2015 and 2016 ‘International engine of the year’ award.
The company’s Head of Corporate Communications, Haroun Malami on Wednesday claimed the engine of the new Mid-life Series luxury sedan, which is called ‘PureTech’ (3-cylinder engine) could reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by up to 25 per cent compared to a 4-cylinder engine with the same power.
Malami said: “Simply put, a 1.2 PureTech engine gives you the power and performance of a 1.6 litre engine, but the efficiency of a smaller engine’’The Access, Active, and Allure specifications come with 1.2-liter engines Pure Tech 3-cylinder, 82 hp (5 speed manual/5 speed Efficient TronicGearbox ETG) and remained the masterpiece offered by the firm to resonate its intelligent, innovative engineering that combines reduced weight materials with the efficiency of applying direct fuel injection to three cylinders.
Winner of the 2015 and 2016 ‘International engine of the year’ award in the 1.0-litre to 1.4-litre category, Peugeot PureTech is advanced 3-cylinder petrol engine technology that offers a drive and performance normally associated with much bigger engines but with significantly improved fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
Malami insisted that prospective customers would enjoy returns on investment, adding “some of the benefits that comes with Puretech engine technology includes but not limited to improved acceleration, reduced fuel consumption which implies less visits to the petrol station and lower CO2 emissions.
PAN said increased fuel efficiency, less friction combined to help reduce fuel consumption, particularly with lighter weight.In terms of overall engine output and driving experience, Peugeot 301 3-cylinder petrol engines are designed to be compact and efficient whilst delivering big engine drive and performance.
Direct fuel injection, light-weight materials and, in some instances, turbo charging combine to deliver power and torque.The power and performance of PureTech ensures a responsive and enjoyable driving experience, underpinned by the latest technology.
This means a reduction in fuel consumption of approximately 1.5 litres every 99.2 kilometres (62 miles), while maintaining optimum driving pleasure.Nigerian customers would have the option of the 1-liter, 5-speed manual transmission PureTech 68hp and 1.2 liter PureTech 82hp (5 speed manual/5 speed Efficient Tronic Gearbox ETG).
Complementary to the product lines of the Peugeot 301 Midlife Series are the turbocharged variants. The 3-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine is developed from the naturally aspirated version but adds a new generation high-performance turbo offering superb low engine speed torque.
