Peugeot no longer investing in diesel engines

French manufacturer Peugeot says that while it will continue to sell diesel vehicles across multiple markets, it has stopped its R&D spend into the technology as it shifts focus to electrification. Speaking to CarAdvice at the Paris motor show this week, Peugeot’s head of future product, Laurent Blanchard, said that with declining sales of diesel vehicles even in the once popular European market, it now makes sense to shift the brand's resources towards propulsion technologies of the future.

Two-doors? Forget them, says Kia

Kia may be billed as a youthful and ‘fun’ brand, but one thing it has no plans to offer along these lines is a mainstream two-door coupe or hatch. Two of its top designers this week said such a product was definitively off the radar. Case in point is the new ProCeed ‘Shooting Brake’ wagon launched in Paris this week to replace the pro_cee’d three-door. Head designer of Kia Europe, Gregory Guillaume, told the tale of how the car was axed, then revived once two extra doors were added.
