Peugeot boosts Chinese petrol engine deliveries amid diesel decline

French automaker PSA Group is increasing deliveries of Chinese-made gasoline engines to Europe as it adapts to a customer shift away from diesel, Les Echos reported on Monday.

The maker of Peugeot and Citroen vehicles now expects to source 100,000 gasoline engines from Chinese plants, a boost on the 55,000 it had previously planned to import in 2017-18, the French financial daily stated.

A PSA spokesman refused to comment on this matter.

Paris-based PSA had announced the import strategies previously this year to accommodate the shift in demand while it transforms some domestic engine production capacity from diesel to gasoline.
