Peugeot Diesel Emission Claims

Did you own a Peugeot Diesel between 2008 and 2018? You could be entitled to thousands in compensation due to Peugeot potentially altering their diesel emissions. Find out today if you can claim.

Peugeot is the latest car manufacturer under investigation for potential misrepresentation of emissions and the use of defeat devices, which may have led to higher pollutant emissions than officially reported.

These alleged actions by Peugeot have potential implications for public health, the environment, and consumer trust.

By filing a potential diesel emissions claim, you can seek compensation for any damages and contribute to holding Peugeot accountable for their actions.

Read on to learn more about the Peugeot diesel emissions scandal, why filing a Peugeot diesel claim is important, and how ClaimExperts can assist you every step of the way.


What Is The Peugeot Diesel Emissions Scandal?

2016 saw much more scrutiny of diesel cars following the 2015 dieselgate scandal. With this, Peugeot came under investigation by French prosecutors. This investigation was initiated after the French consumer watchdog DGCCRF discovered seized documents suggesting irregularities in the diesel emissions of Peugeot diesel vehicles.

A diesel emissions probe conducted in 2017 revealed that approximately 1.9 million Peugeot vehicles could potentially be equipped with deceptive defeat devices. These devices are designed to manipulate emissions during official tests, providing misleading results in order to pass tests.

It was estimated at the time that the PSA Group, the parent company of Peugeot, could face fines of up to €5 billion due to these allegations.

A testing probe supported by the French government uncovered that five vehicles belonging to the PSA Group emitted significantly higher levels of nitrogen oxides (NOx) in real-world driving conditions compared to laboratory tests.

NOx is known to contribute to various respiratory diseases, cancer, acid rain, and smog. Notably, vehicle emissions are the largest source of NOx pollutants in our atmosphere.


What Does The Peugeot Diesel Claim Relate To?

The Peugeot diesel claim relates to the potential misleading of consumers and regulators regarding the actual emissions performance of Peugeot vehicles.

If proven true, Peugeot owners may be entitled to seek compensation for damages caused by the misrepresentation of emissions levels and potential harm to the environment and public health.

The Environmental Impact

Human Health

NOx contributes to various respiratory diseases, cancer, acid rain and smog. Pollution from cars is the biggest contributor to NOx in our air.

Premature Deaths

Air pollution is estimated to cause up to 36,000 premature deaths in the UK each year.

Child Deaths

The WHO estimated that in 2016, 600,000 children died from acute lower respiratory infections caused by polluted air.

Affect on Crops

High levels of nitrogen dioxide are harmful to vegetation - damaging foliage, decreasing growth or reducing crop yields.

Why Should I File My Peugeot Diesel Claim?

Filing a Peugeot diesel claim can have several important benefits:

  1. Compensation: You may be eligible to receive significant compensation for the misrepresentation of emissions and any resulting damages.
  2. Health Impact: By filing a claim, you contribute to holding car manufacturers accountable for their actions, helping to ensure cleaner air and safer environments.
  3. Environmental Impact: Peugeot diesel claims aim to address the issue of excessive emissions, contributing to efforts in reducing air pollution and protecting our planet.


What Are Peugeot Defeat Devices?

Peugeot defeat devices are alleged software installed in vehicles to manipulate emissions readings during official testing. These devices can recognise when a vehicle is being tested and adjust the emissions output to meet regulatory limits.

However, during real-world driving, the emissions can be significantly higher, potentially violating legal limits.

The use of defeat devices is prohibited under EU and UK law, subject to a very limited number of exemptions.


Which Peugeot Models Are Affected By The Diesel Emissions Scandal?

The Peugeot diesel emissions claim is still very new, and investigations are still ongoing. Our panel are initially looking for vehicles that are:

  • Diesel Engine
  • Manufactured Between January 2008 – December 2018

The exact models affected are still being determined, and updates will be provided as more information becomes available.


How much compensation can I receive for a Peugeot Emissions Claim?

The amount of compensation for a Peugeot emissions claim is yet to be determined.

As the investigation progresses and legal proceedings unfold, the potential compensation amounts will be evaluated based on various factors, including the extent of harm caused and the individual circumstances of each claimant.

Having said this, our panel of Peugeot emissions solicitors are confident that you may qualify for a potential compensation amount of up to 75% of your vehicle's value.

Comparable claims made against Volkswagen in the USA and Germany have resulted in substantial compensation for vehicle owners.

Over 100,000 UK Emissions claims have now been settled and paid out in the UK.
