You Can Now Check Real-Life Consumption Figures for Peugeot, Citroën, and DS Cars
The PSA Group does its customers justice
Following the promise made last summer, PSA Group launched a web-based application that can simulate your car's real-life consumption, as estimated by the automaker.
As Gilles Le Borgne, PSA Group Executive Vice President explained, "In line with the commitment we made to our customers, we are now publishing the real-world driving consumption figures for Peugeot, Citroën and DS models on our brand's website. Our customers can now access comprehensive and transparent fuel consumption data. We will add the figures for NOx emissions in summer 2017."
The measurements have been made on 58 models so far, with all the trims, engines, transmissions, and available wheel dimensions included — covering more than 1,000 different configurations. The cars were tested under different circumstances reflecting the average user's behavior — with the air conditioning turned on, various cargo loads, passenger number, hilly terrain, etc.
PSA Group's calculator can estimate your car's fuel consumption also by taking in consideration your behavior. It will ask you if you're a lone driver, or if you travel with passengers and luggage. In addition, you can enter the percentage of urban, countryside, and highway driving included in your daily commute.
All these filters help offer an accurate estimate of your car's fuel consumption. For now, the application is available on PSA's commercial websites from six countries: France, Germany, United Kingdom, Italy, Spain, and Switzerland. PSA officials said the calculator would become available later on for the rest of the European countries.
