Low Emission Peugeot 308 launches in May

Peugeot's revised 308 range will launch in May with CO2 emissions from 98g/km.

It will be available in hatchback, CC and SW body styles along with four main equipment grades: Access, SR, Active and Allure. A range topping hatchback and CC THP 200 model will also be available in a single GT trim level.

Peugeot’s micro-hybrid e-HDi Stop & Start technology is the latest generation technology and combined with Peugeot’s class leading 1.6 litre HDi FAP 112 Euro 5 diesel engine reduces CO2 emissions to 98 g/km. This engine option will also be available with either a six-speed manual gearbox or a six-speed electronically controlled manual gearbox (EGC).

All models feature air conditioning, ESP (Electronic Stability Programme), ABS, EBFD, EBA, front and rear electric windows with child security, remote control central door locking with deadlocks and six SMART safety airbags.

To ensure the new low emissions Peugeot 308 is as environmentally efficient as possible factors affecting CO2 emissions have been optimised;

  • Overall weight reduced by 25 kg on average on all models
  • Fitment of new 16” ultra low rolling resistance tyres
  • Optimisation of all engine options (VTi, THP petrol and HDi diesel engines to Euro5)
  • Cx of 0.28 for the low consumption models – Record for this segment

This also enables the New Peugeot 308 HDi FAP 92 model, fitted with a five-speed manual gearbox, to emit CO2 emissions of only 110 g/km.

At launch four petrol and four diesel engines will be available and go on sale in the UK in May. The new range will start from £15,245 on-the-road with an improved standard specification to the current model.
