During a press conference, Philippe Varin, Chairman of the Group's Managing Board, Guillaume Faury, Executive Vice President of Research & Development, Philippe Bouyoux, France's Deputy General Commissioner for Investment Projects and François Loos, Chairman of the French Environment and Energy Management Agency (ADEME), unveiled a new type of full-hybrid powertrain known as Hybrid Air. Peugeot 208 GTi experience: The breakthrough technology, which combines a petrol engine and compressed air for energy storage, represents a key step towards the 2l/100km car by 2020, according to the French manufacturer. Other new innovations and technology available from 2013 on Peugeot and Citroën brand vehicles to meet emerging expectations were also presented: EMP2: PSA Peugeot Citroën's new global modular platform. Participants were treated to a preview of the Group's new global platform, Efficient Modular Platform 2 (EMP2). This new generation platform provides effective solutions in terms of modularity, equipment and carbon reduction. Selective Catalytic Reduction Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR): an innovative technology for eliminating diesel NOx emissions. In 2013, PSA Peugeot Citroën will introduce selective catalytic reduction (SCR) to maintain its leadership in diesel engine efficiency and lower NOx emissions to the level of petrol engines. Because it is positioned upstream from the Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) with additive, this unique technology makes it possible to both eliminate NOx and reduce fuel consumption (by two to four per cent from Euro 5 levels). Car of the Future Innovations that set the stage for the car of the future were also on display, including: Eco Hybrid: a broadly accessible hybrid solution. The use of this technology on petrol and diesel vehicles in the B, C and D segments will reduce CO2 emissions by 15g and cut fuel consumption by up to 15 per cent. Dedicated Exhaust Gas Recirculation System (EGR): an innovative solution to optimise petrol engine fuel consumption. Innovation This innovation is designed to improve petrol engine efficiency and deliver significant fuel savings. Hydole: a mainly electric hybrid demonstrator. Peugeot-Citroen and its partners are said to have developed a plug-in hybrid demonstrator that puts peace of mind into the EV driving experience to test the potential uses of the car of the future and meet customer expectations for driving range, comfort and affordability. VelV: the light city electric vehicle. 60 per cent of trips within cities are made in individual cars, with a resulting impact on CO2 emissions. VelV is a light electric vehicle project designed to meet city and suburban driving needs with a record power consumption level of just 85 Wh/km travelled.
