Peugeot's Blue Lion comprehensively leads green race
Peugeot's long term commitment to reducing the environmental impact of its vehicles has paid huge dividends. 2008 sales figures place Peugeot at the very top as the leading low CO2 car company, both in the UK and across Europe.

Peugeot cars, identified to customers through its Blue Lion standards (which includes all sub 131g/km) is the most popular brand for economical and low CO2 vehicles (of sub 121g/km and 131g/km) in the UK and throughout Europe.

In the UK throughout 2008, the best-selling low CO2 vehicle in the sub 111g/km sector was the Peugeot 107 - recently enhanced with even lower CO2 emissions of 106g/km - with 16,701 sold (15,333 in 2007).

Impressively, sales of sub 121g/km vehicles also saw the 107 joined by the 207 and 308, placed fifth and ninth - three cars in the top ten of all cars - placing Peugeot firmly at the top of this combined category with 38,458 (18.6% of all <121g/km) cars sold. Even in the larger category of sub 131g/km vehicles, Peugeot also leads that category too.

Across Europe, a similar and equally positive story shows Peugeot comprehensively leading the sectors for sub 121g/km and 131g/km vehicles, where sales of some 315,805 (15.5%) and 441,385 (13.7%) cars were sold - more than any other marque in the lowest CO2 categories.

The Peugeot 107 was the best-selling, low CO2 car in the sub 111g/km category, while the Peugeot 207 was the best-selling, low CO2 car in both the sub 121g/km and 131g/km sectors.

Due to an extensive range of low CO2 vehicles, Peugeot offers drivers a wide choice when looking to make an environmentally conscious decision. The benefits of choosing a low CO2 car mean that it is correspondingly economical too, be it the 107 city car with emissions of just 106g/km or the five-door 308 family hatchback, which in 1.6-litre HDi 90 guise has CO2 emissions of just 120g/km.

Peugeot has some 36 vehicles across its 107, 207 and 308 ranges with CO2 emissions less than 121g/km, and 48 (within its Blue Lion standards) with CO2 emissions less than 131g/km.

Christian Stein, Marketing Director at Peugeot in the UK, said; "Peugeot has long held a commitment to reducing the environmental impact of its vehicles and these sales statistics for 2008 show us to be at the very top as the leading low CO2 car company, both in the UK and across Europe."

"Peugeot cars, identified to customers through its Blue Lion standards is clearly the most popular brand for economical and low CO2 vehicles throughout Europe. We are delighted to be comprehensively leading the ‘green race' with the benefit of lower running costs for our customers."
