Peugeot puts Roland-Garros 2021 on!

Partner of Roland-Garros for the 38th consecutive year, Peugeot is making 162 vehicles available for the 2021 edition of the Paris tournament. Great first: all these vehicles are electrified.

Let’s go for Roland Garros 2021 ! The famous clay tennis tournament is back and taking place this year from May 30 to June 13 at the Porte d’Auteuil, in Paris. And like every year, Peugeot is participating! For the 38th consecutive year, the French manufacturer is indeed the official automotive partner of the event.

A 100% electrified fleet, a first

As usual, the lion mark will ensure the transport of players, officials and VIPs. But for the first time she will do it with a fleet of 100% electrified vehicles.

“Peugeot is thus making Roland-Garros the first sporting event of global scope associated with fully electrified mobility. », Announces the manufacturer.

162 Peugeot made available

This fleet is made up of 162 vehicles : one third of 100% electric models and two thirds of rechargeable hybrids. All for an exceptionally low carbon footprint since the average CO emissions2 per vehicle is just 22.7g per kilometer, 7.5 times less than in 2019.

Six models from the range are requisitioned: the 508 PSE (360 hp), the 508 Hybrid (225 hp), the 3008 GT HYbrid (225 ch e-EAT8), and e-2008 as well as vans e-Traveler and e-Expert.

All vehicles in the fleet are marked with the Roland-Garros logo, the new Peugeot logo and bear the words “Official Partner”.

To complete this device, the 508 PSE will be on display in its break SW version on a dedicated podium for the duration of the tournament.

Novak Djokovic and Ambassador
