Question & Answer

PSA Compliance

Asked by PSA Complianceon 29 Oct 2015

PSA’s Research & Development Department reaffirms that PSA complies with the approval procedures in effect in all countries where it operates, and that powertrain settings, assuming the same conditions of use, are identical whether for approval procedures or in real life. Further, PSA notes that the SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) system installed on all its Euro6 Diesel vehicles produces variances that are among the lowest in the automotive industry between approved emissions and those arising from customer use. In the same spirit of improving air quality, PSA supports introducing the new procedure; the worldwide harmonized light vehicles test procedure [WLTP] plus Real Driving Emissions [RDE] from September 2017 in its most demanding version, to replace the current European approval procedure New European Driving Cycle [NEDC], which is not representative of real customer use.
