Default Real world fuel economy ratings - Peugeot, Citroen and DS take the lead

It makes more sense to customers when real world fuel economy data is published instead of the results conducted in 'controlled environment.

Added to the scandal of publishing results not as per standards has created another story and confusion to the prospective customers.

Now to clear this, Peugeot, Citroen And DS Announce First Real-World Fuel Economy Results.
French automaker PSA admits some of its official fuel-economy figures are more than 30% overly optimistic.

PSA says its findings reflect those reported by its own customers. It is the first major automaker to publish true fuel-economy figures after beginning tests in November 2015 in response to the decreasing consumer confidence in car testing.

The PSA Group fulfilled its commitment to publish the results of real-world fuel consumption tests for 30 core models.
This particular test procedure was established by two non-government organizations, Transport & Environment (T&E) and France Nature Environment (FNE) and has been audited by Bureau Veritas to secure the reliability of the final figures.
Based on the EU’s planned Real Driving Emissions (RDE) project, fuel consumption was measured using a portable emissions measurement system (PEMS) installed on the vehicle. The test took place on public roads open to traffic, with the route including 25km urban, 39km rural and 31km motorway driving under real-life driving conditions.

This means that the cars were loaded with a passenger and luggage while the air-conditioning system was enabled during the whole procedure.
The first results include 14 Peugeot models, 11 Citroens and three cars from the DS range.

The French company also announced that, by the end of 2016, a fuel economy simulator will be launched on all three of their brands’ websites to help customers predict their vehicle’s consumption based on their driving style and conditions, along with an eco-driving application to help them reduce their needs in fuel.
