French Automaker PGO to Get BMW Engine Technology

While also testing out a range extender EV/hybrid version of the Hemera, independent French automaker PGO will be getting a big boost in their technology credentials with the help of BMW. They have recently signed and agreement with the Germans to use BMW engines in their current and future cars.

All PGO models are currently powered by a very old 2-liter 140 hp engine which is a lot less than what the Hemera’s chassis can handle. With BMW engines and technology, the appeal of PGO may rise dramatically and we may start hearing more often about the French manufacturer.

"The arrival of a BMW engine will allow our models to be more powerful, more attractive, more innovative but also more fuel efficient and environmentally friendly," said Mr Boudemagh President of PGO Automobiles.

The collaboration is a serious one, as back in 2010, what appeared to be a Hemera-mule of some sort was spotted at a BMW factory in Germany. We hope to hear more of PGO soon and we hope that with their future cars they will at least try to ‘get inspiration’ from a French car, not a German one, and preferably from the 1960s.
