London.Rising consumer awareness of sustainable mobility has prompted automotive OEMs to develop and introduce low-emission vehicles. In 2015, every other car sold in Europe will have CO2 emissions in the range of 101-120 g/km. These cars will not only contribute to a greener environment but will also reduce the CO2 fleet average of cars in the European Union. Diesel hybrids are likely to have a positive impact on the European market and further increase the share of diesel engines in this region. Although the initial costs are higher, diesel hybrids provide higher performance, lower CO2 emissions and better fuel efficiency. Over the last two decades, Diesel engines have become more popular among European consumers, due to their higher fuel efficiency, lower CO2 emission values and fun-to-drive perception when compared to gasoline engines. Although these factors contribute to the high proportion of diesel engines in Europe, the principal drawback of diesel engines is the challenge in controlling particulate matter (PM) and emissions of oxides of nitrogen (NOx).
The Hybrid4 from the PSA Group is a benchmark for other OEMs in the region that have similar, or in some cases different, strategies for adopting low-emission vehicles. True to its tradition of developing state-of-the-art diesel engines, it is the first OEM in the world that has introduced a diesel-hybrid powertrain. The PSA Group also plans to introduce plug-in hybrids in the future. Another French OEM, Renault, is likely to adopt a different strategy by introducing all-electric powertrains. Fiat, on the other hand, is likely to introduce gasoline ‘MultiAir’ and diesel ‘MultiJet II’ engines that include a 0.9 litre, 2-cylinder gasoline engine.
