Peugeot will abandon the "charged" 308 GT

The online magazine "5koleso" 12.04.2019 at 13:00

It Seems that the new victims of more stringent environmental standards, the EU will become a two sport models of Peugeot – 308 GT and 308 GTI, which, reportedly, will be excluded from the line of the manufacturer at the end of this year.

Planned due to the exclusion of the two sports versions of the 308-th model Peugeot looking to improve their corporate average emissions of CO2 in the atmosphere. Otherwise, the company can expect a significant fine.

it is Noted that the production of the 308 GT is equipped with a 1.6-litre petrol engine in the 222 horses emitted into the atmosphere 133 grams of CO2 per kilometre, will end in June. A more powerful version of the 308 GTI at 263 HP, emitted into the atmosphere 144 grams of CO2 will live a little longer — until the end of the year.

But it is interesting that a variant of the 308 GT with a diesel engine Peugeot is still in production. As for the GTI, its power was already low on HP 7 this year, although torque increased by 10 Nm. But to improve the motor will continue to be economically unprofitable.

in addition, Peugeot plans to cut an additional option for all cars, since most of them increase the weight and affect the CO2 emissions. Actually, other brands of the PSA Group, will likely go the same way.

However, fans of the sport 308-x must not grieve too long as Peugeot 308 GTI will debut a new generation already in 2020 year, and will get a hybrid powertrain consisting of a gasoline engine and two electric motors, outstanding total capacity of 300 horsepower, while meeting the strictest environmental standards.
