  • Clear standard to identify the greenest cars in the range

    • CO2 emissions that are lower than or equal to 130 g/km for vehicles that use fossil fuels
    • Manufactured in an ISO 14001 certificated manufacturing plant
    • Designed so that, at the end of its life, the vehicle is 95% recyclable (provide recycled materials and energy)

  • 50 models with CO2 emissions lower or equal to 130 g/km
  • Blue Lion branded vehicles significantly reduce the costs of motoring

To assist customers in identifying the cleanest and most environmentally friendly vehicles in its model range, Peugeot has introduced the Blue Lion standard.

The standard will be awarded to all models which meet a list of set criteria:

    • CO2 emissions that are lower than or equal to 130 g/km for vehicles that use fossil fuels
    • Manufactured in an ISO 14001 certificated production facility
    • Designed so that, at the end of its life, the vehicle is 95% recyclable (provide recycled materials and energy)

Choosing a Peugeot Blue Lion Car can also significantly reduce day-to-day running costs.

Not only does it bring down the environmental cost but, it also reduces on-going fuel and vehicle excise duty costs (Road Tax) by increasing the vehicle's miles per gallon capabilities and ensuring many Blue Lion Cars fall into the lowest vehicle excise duty band.

Costs to enter the current London Congestion charge area could also be significantly reduced.

So with its 109 g/km Peugeot 107, the ultimate city runabout the Peugeot 1007, the best selling Peugeot car ever – the 206, the chic and stylish Peugeot 207 or the family friendly 308, Peugeot has a Blue Lion Car to meet the needs of many different potential customers.
