The Peugeot 308 CC will be the first model in the Peugeot range to benefit from a new 1.6 litre 112 bhp diesel engine. This new engine is the result of Peugeot’s continual development and optimisation of its diesel HDi FAP technology, widely acclaimed for its performance and efficiency.
This new 1.6 litre HDi FAP diesel engine has been designed to meet the requirements of the new Euro 5 emission standards. It also benefits from a number of improvements over the current 110 bhp unit with improved performance in terms of flexibility and responsiveness, as well as noise reduction, while at the same time reducing fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
Apart from the coupe, Peugeot has four other low CO2, highly-economical vehicles taking part in the 2011 Bridgestone eco-rally – the 100% electric iOn, a compact Bipper van in Royal Mail livery, a 508 Saloon and an electric-assist bicycle - all available to hire with the ‘Mu by Peugeot’ rental scheme – viewable at www.mu.peugeot.co.uk.
Mu by Peugeot was launched into the UK as a pilot in 2010, in the same year that the Peugeot brand celebrated its 200th anniversary, promoting the fact that no other producer has such a wide portfolio of choice with personal mobility vehicles.
The pilot, based at Peugeot Dealerships in Chiswick, London and Temple Gate, Bristol, follows similar schemes started in France (initially in Brest, Lyons, Nantes and Rennes, and then throughout Paris), followed in Germany, Italy, Holland, Belgium and Spain, and has been deemed a success. It now goes into phase III, where in the UK a number of dealerships take on ‘Mu by Peugeot’ to enhance the rental experience.
