The car in question is a Peugeot and the model is the 208 BlueHDi diesel.

It covered 1,337.19 miles (2,152kms) on 9.45 gallons (43 litres) of fuel. That works out at 2litres/100km.

The test took place at the end of April and details are now being unveiled as the French maker - whose petrols are also stretching fuel-consumption distances - claims a new record.

The driving was at Peugeot's test circuit at Belchamp, France.

It was, according to Peugeot, a 'strictly standard production' 208 hatchback, with the 1.6-litre BlueHDi 100 Stop/Start engine and an ordinary 5spd manual gearbox.

Peugeot are claiming that this is the long-distance fuel consumption record for a standard production vehicle.

With the way technology is advancing, it will be interesting to see if/when it can be beaten.
