Pluriel Diesel CO2 émissions - confused?!

If you need help with your C3 Pluriel, that seems specific to the Pluriel (like the roof), ask here. Engine and Transmission problem must be asked in the relevant topic for the problem. The Pluriel shares the same Engine, Gearbox, Brakes and Transmission as the other C3 models (see above for the correct section).

Questions about the Pluriel Roof system can be asked here
No engine, gearbox or running gear questions
Think: Pluriel roof and rear window jobs
Did you know the Pluriel shares the engines, gearboxes, electrical, audio system, suspension, steering and running gear with the early C3?

Hi all

I wondered if anyone could shed any light on the CO2 emissions for the Diesel Pluriels from start to end of production - or where I can obtain the official figures per year of production?

I see that cars dated pre-October 2005 are shown on some sites as having a CO2 output of 120g/km - and all post October 2005 cars have an output of 125g/km. Yet I have seen some post October 2005 cars advertised (particularly in France - HDi70) with a CO2 of 120g/km?

Thanks!

Hi machineage.

I use this link for the UK models (because that is how they are taxed)

https://carfueldata.dft.gov.uk
Citroen C3 Emissions
Citroen C3 Emissions
Which shows a CITROEN C3 C3 1.4 HDi, M5 from 2003 as giving 110g CO2/Km


Wikipedia has information, but currently only for the post 2009 model when it comes to emission figures.

The SMMT have a similar tool to the one above and you can select the pluriel as a derivative

I don't know if they just changed the way emissions were measured, back in 2005 or there was an update to the ECU?

Thank you guys

It would appear therefore the earlier models pump out 5g/km less CO2 which relates to £30 / year tax as opposed to £110 for the later cars.

Is the engine in these earlier Pluriels the same as that used in the standard C3 1.4HDi of the same period? Also does the Pluriel share the same drivetrain / chassis as the standard C3? Finally are there any issues I should be aware of with the engine / chassis / drivetrain etc? I would like to gain some knowledge of the early diesel Pluriel aside from the well documented roof issues ;)

Many thanks!

Well, double check on the first link with the exact vehicle details because this is how you will be taxed for VED, even if its wrong.

Yes, the pluriel engine and drive train is the same as the other C3 models. Even the standard C3 has the electrical programming option to be a 3 door (obviously it needs the mechanicals and electricals - but it does show how closely they are related).

Broken road springs at the front. Worn rear engine mount at 100 000miles, rusting rear exhaust hanger. Neglected servicing.

And you are aware of the potential roof problems?!!

Good luck :)
