PSA plans continued leading diesel role; eyes US market

Frankfurt/Main. PSA intends to continue to play a leading roll in the development of diesel engines, according to group chief Jean-Martin Folz. The third generation of particulate filters, however, will still work with additives. PSA is searching for pure catalytic converter- and built-in-solutions.

In the future PSA mainly plans to fit vehicles with more than 100hp with FAP-particulate filters. Currently more than 10 percent of PSA diesel cars fitted with soot filters are sold in Germany.

At the IAA in Frankfurt Folz emphasized a possible PSA entry on the US market for the first time: "We must take the North American market into consideration with our plans." However, a decision has not yet been made.
