Peugeot and Citroen to build turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine
14 April 2010

Peugeot and Citroen has announced £155m of investment to develop a turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine from 2013.

The announcement is in addition to PSA's committment to building normally-aspirated 1.2-litre three-cylinder engines from early 2012 in its Tremery plant in eastern France.

The turbocharged version of the small-capacity petrol engine will be built at the firm's Douvrin plant in northern France, with production scheduled to begin a year later.

PSA say the new family of three-cylinder engines will be petrol only and will meet the Euro VI emissions standards.
