Thanks Anthony Le Bleis.
You are very fast to publish ! I just heard this information this morning on radio during my breakfast.
This is excellent news for those who will never, in the coming 10 years move to EV. This is an excellent news because this is a very good incentive for other OEM to also progress faster.
This is for Peugeot, what we call a POD (Point Of Differentiation).
Of course this 2 liter must be taken with care because I imagine that in day life, it could be perhaps around 2.5 or 3 liters but this is already a very good news to see such improvment on mass market car !
Anthony, this car is probably in the worldwide top-10 of the low consumption cars.
Peugeot has reached a new limit and I am anxious to know more about this 208 HDi...
Eric Berger can we apply the model to this 208? We know its weight, tire RRT... And it is not a hybrid!
Of course we can think this record is established in the best conditions with no stop thus no restart and so on. But !!!
What do you think?
here is our simple model applied to the 208
1090kg, CdA 0.60, low rolling resistance tires 7kg/t, the total energy demand is close to 9.8 kwh on the NEDC cycle. Add 1 kwh lost in the gearbox, and the fuel consumption due to mechanichal resistance and consumers is close to 2.4 l/100 km.
There's no fuel consumption due to idle thanks to start&stop, and the engine zero load consumption can be estimated at 1.08 l/100km (mean engine rpm 1600 and a very low value of consumption due to engine internal losses of 0.3l/h at 1000 rpm)
The results is a fuel consumption on the NEDC cycle of 3.36 l/100km and 89g CO2/km
With those parameters, the fuel consumption at a constant speed of 56 kph (the record seems to have be done at that speed) and assuming the engine speed is 1400 rpm - I don't have the gearbox ratio- is 2.2 l/100 km
Not so far !
Thank you Eric !
In fact, this model is very close to reality! Good point
