Environment

The Citroën approach to sustainable mobility.

Sustainable mobility is an offshoot of Sustainable development, with a focus on transport and mobility in general.
We're committed to reducing the greenhouse gas emissions and pollution associated with our vehicles as well as minimising other impacts on the environment. We're also keen to encourage changes in travelling behaviour.

As part of PSA Peugeot-Citroën, we're committed to a programme of sustainable development. In other words, we're constantly looking into better ways of doing things.

Eco driving

Gear selection

Gear selection

Selecting the right gear for your speed is a simple way to optimise fuel consumption. Although, for reasons of safety or traffic density, you may sometimes have to maintain a low gear ratio, it is often possible to adopt a higher gear, reducing the workload on the engine in order to maintain your vehicle’s speed.

 Speed control

Speed control

A nervous or aggressive driving style, braking and accelerating constantly, increases fuel consumption unnecessarily.

vehicule load

Vehicle load

The heavier your car, the harder the engine needs to work to drive it forward. This means higher fuel consumption.

abc

Tyre pressure

When your tyres are under-inflated, rolling resistance is higher than normal, the engine has to work harder and you therefore consume more fuel.

Maintenance

Maintenance

If vehicle sub-systems (engine, gearbox, air conditioning, tyres, etc.) are poorly maintained, your car runs less efficiently and consumes more fuel.

Journey planner

Journey planner

Your car consumes more fuel in traffic jams or when you use it frequently for short journeys.

Drag efficiency

Drag efficiency

Driving with an open sunroof or windows considerably increases drag.

Power management

Power management

All of your in-car electrical systems use energy supplied by the engine. So the more electricity you use the more fuel you consume.

computer assitency

Computer assistance

Many Citroën vehicles are equipped with an onboard computer. This system will help you assess your capacity to save fuel.

Waste battery management

Waste battery management

The European Directive to address the treatment and disposal of waste batteries was published to the EC Member States in September 2006. This Directive gave instructions to each Member State to implement National Regulations regarding the collection and treatment of waste batteries.

Alternative Energy

Alternative Energy

Citroën markets powertrains designed to run on biofuels; biodiesel for HDi diesel engines and bioethanol for petrol engines.
