the peugeot partner tepee just got greener

Monday, 19 October 2009

  • New Partner Tepee S 1.6 VTi 120 with Euro 5 petrol engine
  • 12.5% reduction in fuel consumption
  • 15% reduction in CO2 Emissions
  • Available in November at £12,795 on-the-road

Peugeot’s class leading family compact MPV the Partner Tepee is now available with a new Euro 5 petrol engine making it more fuel efficient and “greener”.

Available next month, the Partner Tepee S model will no longer be powered by Peugeot’s current 1.6 litre 16v 110 bhp petrol engine but will now see the introduction of the 1.6 litre 120 bhp VTi Euro 5 petrol engine previously fitted in the 207 and 308 model range.

This high tech petrol engine uses Peugeot’s class leading VTi Technology (Variable Valve Lift and Timing injection). This indirect injection petrol engine is a real first for this size of engine due to the advanced technology it employs. In addition to the variable valve timing for both the inlet and exhaust valves, a variable inlet valve lift system allows the valve opening distance to be adjusted gradually according to the position of the accelerator pedal.  The combination of these two technologies improves the engine’s thermodynamic efficiency by significantly reducing fuel consumption (particularly at low engine speeds) and therefore CO2 emissions, but also improves response and overall flexibility.

This results in a 12.5% improvement in fuel consumption and a 15% improvement in CO2 emissions. Vehicle excise duty, VED, also reduces from £215.00 to £175.00 a saving of £45 per year.

The new Partner Tepee S VTi 120 will be available at an on-the-road price of £12,795.
