PSA says all passenger cars now WLTP compliant

All Peugeot, Citroën, DS, Opel and Vauxhall passenger cars have been approved using the new laboratory test, WLTP (Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure).

"Our technological choices to treat pollutant emissions, such as SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) for all diesel engines launched in 2013 and more recently the GPF (Gasoline Particulate Filter) for gasoline engines with direct injection, allow us to offer our customers, compliant and environmentally friendly vehicles," said PSA EVP Quality and Engineering, Gilles Le Borgne.

"WLTP is a more rigorous and longer test developed to better reflects real driving customers' consumption and emissions than the previous test NEDC."

The next step will be the future Euro 6.d-Temp standard, which will apply from September, 2019. It will also take into account the pollutant emissions (NOx, PN) measured in real-world driving conditions on open roads or Real Driving Emissions (RDE).

Since 2015, Groupe PSA has publicly supported the implementation of the WLTP procedure.

In addition, since 2016, Groupe PSA has published on Peugeot, Citroën and DS websites, the fuel consumption data of more than 1,000 models in real driving conditions and later on NOx and PN emissions data.
