6/5/2018: New award for EB Turbo PureTech voted “Engine of the Year 2018”

  • Today, the Turbo PureTech 3-cylinder petrol engine (110 hp and 130 hp) was named International Engine of the Year in the 1-litre to 1.4-litre category, for the 4th year in a row, by the panel of the 20th International Engine of the Year Awards in Stuttgart.
  • Groupe PSA has filed 210 patents for its family of 3-cylinder petrol engines. The new generation PureTech engine offers improved performance, fuel consumption and efficiency, with specific benefits including:
    • a 4% improvement in fuel consumption on average compared with the previous generation;
    • improved engine response time thanks to an optimised turbocharger (20% faster increase in torque from 1500 rpm);
    • a 75% reduction in particulate emissions through the use of a gasoline particulate filter (GPF), meeting the Real Driving Emissions (RDE) conformity factor of 1.5 set by EU regulations for 2020, three years in advance;
    • a more compact structure, to adapt to the new Common Modular Platform (CMP) dedicated to small city cars, core sedans and compact SUVs.

Launched in 2017 on the new Peugeot 308, the new generation is now being deployed on Groupe PSA’s vehicles across some hundred applications in more than 70 countries. The engines comply with Euro 6d-TEMP and China 6b standards.

2018/04/17: Being able to be fielded by plane, helicopter or parachute, the multipurpose Light Armoured Vehicle (VBL) developed by Panhard has been used for more than 20 years by the French Army and 15 other countries.

Panhard now enables these Armies to upgrade the hundreds of VBL currently in use, by integrating among other a new and more powerful powertrain than the Peugeot XD3T which has proven its reliability over the years.

After several years of development work and severe tests in extreme conditions, PSA Powertrain and Panhard have signed a Supply Agreement for the repowering of the French Army’s vehicles.

Matched with an automatic transmission, the DW10FC engine issued from the Peugeot 508 passenger car, will power the 5-ton Panhard vehicle starting July 2018, enabling this highly durable vehicle to start a new career on worldwide fields.
