PARIS (Reuters) -- PSA/Peugeot-Citroen will cooperate with Brussels-based green lobby group Transport & Environment (T&E) to measure and publish the real-world fuel consumption of its vehicles, CEO Carlos Tavares told reporters on Monday.
The announcement by Europe's No. 2 carmaker comes two months after the Volkswagen emissions-cheating scandal came to light.
"In these troubled times for the industry, we must keep the trust of our consumers," Tavares said.
"The procedure will measure real-world fuel economy for each of PSA’s main passenger vehicle models with tests on open public roads near Paris in real driving conditions, with segments to include urban, extra-urban and highway driving," the automaker added in the release.
