The results of the tests conducted by the technical committee led by French environment minister Ségolène Royal have now been communicated to us. These results attest to the absence of anomalies on PSA Peugeot Citroën vehicles.
The purpose of the tests, which were carried out by French testing laboratory UTAC, was to verify vehicle compliance with regard to pollutant emissions. The test results confirm the validity of PSA Peugeot Citroën’s choices in terms of pollutant emission treatment technology.
These initial results also confirm the effectiveness of the BlueHDi after-treatment system, which includes selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technology positioned upstream of the particulate filter, to treat the nitrogen oxides (NOx) released by diesel engines. This technology has been deployed on all of the Group’s Euro6 vehicles since late 2013.
PSA Peugeot Citroën has not been the subject of a search by France’s General Directorate for Competition Policy, Consumer Affairs and Fraud Control (DGCCRF).
