The e-HDi micro-hybrid technology created in 2011 is also known as the latest-generation Stop&Start system. Because the engine reduces CO2 emissions and enhances driving pleasure, Peugeot now wishes to generalize it and targets one million e-HDi vehicles on the road by 2013.
An “ecolo-mic” engine
The Stop&Start function automatically cuts out the engine during each stop phase of the vehicle then restarts smoothly it whenever the driver so wishes. The e-HDi offers optimal control over consumption and CO2 emissions. Ecological performances are greatly improved and driving pleasure is intensely enjoyable. The Stop&Start can be deactivated at wish and adapts to all driving modes.
More and more accessible
Launched on the 508, hybrid technology now equips a wide range of Peugeot models. Stop & Start is currently fitted in the 3008, 508, 5008, and by the end of this year we aim to have over 30% of our HDi models fitted with this groundbreaking technology. By the end of 2013, we hope to have over 1 million Stop & Start vehicles on the road.
