A new stage in eco-design

Eco-design is another area in which the Peugeot 208 had to prove itself a pioneer. With the integration of 25% "green materials" out of the 170 kg of polymers (excluding rubber) present on the vehicle (compared with 7% on the 207), the 208 enters a new stage in terms of ecodesign. In particular, it has an entirely recycled rear bumper, which is a world first for these materials, until now used only for concealed parts, as well as a radiator frame and fan which are also entirely recycled.

This type of bumper, alone, will allow a saving of 1600 tonnes of oil in a year. These green materials also make up numerous parts or functions of the vehicle (wheel arch interior, rear bumper, soundproofing, boot mat, steering wheel, seats, engine cover, air filter, etc.).
