The Citroën 'Rosalie' was the world's first production diesel car part-developed by highly acclaimed engineer, Sir Harry Ricardo (founder of Ricardo Consulting Engineers). The veteran Rosalie (1760cc 11UD) first appeared at the Paris Motor Show in 1935, and therefore surprised the press at the start-line of the inaugural future car rally from Brighton to London.
The Peugeot 3008 Crossover, with HYbrid4 technology, is the first diesel-electric ‘Full Hybrid’ production car in the world. Peugeot believe the combination of a powerful yet fuel efficient diesel engine and electric motor is the optimal combination for a hybrid vehicle. Unlike previous hybrid vehicles which have chosen to use a less fuel efficient petrol engine, the HYbrid4’s diesel engine provides a Combined Drive Cycle fuel consumption of 74mpg, and as little as 99g/km CO2. Drivers can switch between four different operating modes; Auto, electric-only, 4wd and Sport Silent.
The new Focus ECOnetic establishes a new industry benchmark for fuel efficiency in the popular compact class. A host of advanced technologies - including active aerodynamics auto-start-stop & smart regenerative charging - make it more fuel efficient than any other compact vehicle on the road in Europe, including diesel, petrol and hybrid powered vehicles.
The Infineum team in Oxfordshire is at the cutting edge of some of the major developments in fuel economy for ICE vehicles, in Europe – and indeed the world. To sustain the group’s Technological excellence, Infineum has a sizeable research and development (R&D) budget, including for engine testing.
