 CO2 EMISSIONS  | FRANCE  
PSAís fleet average CO2 levels at home rose sharply last year

France CO2 emissions passenger car sales

It has been a common and well deserved positive thread in recent media reporting that Peugeot-CitroŽn, thanks in part to its popular small cars, has repeatedly returned some of the lowest average fleet CO2 levels in Europe. So given this continuous progress in recent years, not just in France, but also on the wider European scene, it comes as something of a shock when last year on French home turf the exact opposite was the case. But the recent acquisition of Opel-Vauxhall alone doesnít appear to be the main reason.

Peugeot-CitroŽn, after making sizeable and steady progress in its quest to lower its fleet average CO2 levels in Europe, has lurched into the opposite direction. 

Figures show that in last yearís French home market PSAís fl eet average CO2 levels rose by 2.5g/km to 106.7g/km. 

That compares with a markedly lower 104.2g/km during the whole of 2016, according to an AID investigation based on AAA supplied figures.
