Peugeot Technology

One of PEUGEOT's primary concerns as a car manufacturer is its commitment to environmental conservation, which for us goes hand in hand with driving enjoyment. The PEUGEOT engineers and designers have risen to the challenge, coming up with a whole range.

Peugeot PureTech turbocharged engine

PureTech Engines

The family of 3-cylinder PureTech Peugeot petrol engines is a distillation of efficiency and cutting-edge technology. Voted Engine of the Year in its category in 2015 and 2016, this family equips the entire Peugeot range from the 108 to the 5008.

Developed by the PSA Group, BlueHDi technology combines the SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) and AdBlue®. This technology slashes NOx emissions by up to 90% and breaks them down into water vapour (H2O) and nitrogen (N2).

BlueHDi Engines

The creator of the most efficient system on the market in terms of reducing polluting emissions, Peugeot has confirmed its leadership in environmental efficiency. BlueHDi is the name given to Peugeot Euro 6 Diesel engines that combine high performance with limited emissions.

EAT6 Automatic Gearbox - Presentation of gearbox

EAT6 automatic gearbox

The EAT6i gearbox is a 6-speed automatic gearbox, optimising consumption and driving sensations. It has been designed to drastically reduce carbon emissions while offering a high quality of driving.

EAT8 Boite de vitesses

The new automatic transmission EAT8 can reduce fuel consumption up to 7% compared to the EAT6 by improving output with the extension of Stop & Start up to 20 km/h and the transition to eight speeds.


With the Stop & Start function i, available on petrol engine and diesel engines, combine ecological performance with enjoyable driving!

Adapted to urban driving, the Stop & Start function automatically switches off the engine every time the car stops, for example when waiting at a red light or at a road junction. When the driver wants to continue their journey, restarting is performed instantly and smoothly.

This technology has several advantages: greater control over consumption (- 15% in dense urban traffic, compared to a conventional vehicle), a reduction in carbon emissions (zero emissions during engine cut-out phases) and silence when not moving.

In order to suit all driving modes, the Stop & Start function can be deactivated.


EMP2 Platform

The EMP2 platform i has a modular construction i central to the design and manufacture of the new mid-range and high-end models of the PSA Group which in particular provides:

  • A modular architecture to meet the specific requirements of the main world markets (4- and 5-door saloons, estates, monospaces, notchbacks, SUVs, convertibles and coupés)
  • A diversity of engines and gearboxes on a single platform (4-cylinder, hybrid, 4 wheel drive, etc.)
  • A lightening of the cars and a reduction in carbon emissions while improving rigidity, security and driving pleasure thanks to its innovative lightweight materials like steel, composite materials, aluminium for ground links and cutting-edge processes (such as hot stamping and laser welding)
  • Innovative technological choices optimising steering pleasure, handling, interior comfort and safety (composite floor, ultra-low rolling resistance tyres, etc.)
  • More freedom of style (large wheels, variability of wheelbases, low bonnet and low driving position, etc.) regardless of the silhouette (SUV, saloon, etc.)

Launched for the Peugeot 308 in 2013, the EMP2 platform has been used to produce the new Peugeot SUV 3008 and 5008 and the new Traveller and Expert.


In line with its commitments to reduce the environmental impact of its vehicles at their end of life, the PSA Group is collaborating with the SNAM i, the leading European company for collecting and recycling power batteries. The agreement signed in late 2015, as part of the partnership forged with SNAM since 2012 in France, guarantees the quality of the processes used for collecting and recycling batteries from the Group’s vehicles, both electric and hybrid, at the end of their life, over the entire sales network and its production sites in Europe.

SNAM achieves a performance of 70% efficiency of recycled weight for Li-ion batteries for electric vehicles and 84% for Ni-MH batteries for hybrid vehicles. These levels are significantly higher than the thresholds of the European regulation which imposes a 50% materials recycling rate.
