PSA To Offer Hybrids In All Ranges In 2019
Groupe PSA has announced plans to offer an electric or hybrid powertrain option on its entire line-up from 2019.
Starting in 2019, each new model developed by Peugeot, Citroën, DS, Vauxhall and Opel will have a full-electric or hybrid version.
The Groupe PSA’s five brands will offer clean mobility solutions in the form of all-electric, zero-emission vehicles or plug-in hybrid emitting less than 49g/km of CO2.
The brand has said it is “technologically ready to play its part in the energy transition” thanks to a multi-energy offering.
The move will allow customers to buy whatever models they want in an internal combustion, electric or hybrid version, it said.
Groupe PSA is focusing on building its models on two platforms, CMP and EMP2, which are able to integrate any of the powertrains of its line-up, internal combustion, electric or hybrid. They allow its plants to produce internal combustion, hybrid or electric vehicles on a single production line.
Fifteen new electrified vehicles will be launched in just two years. Eight new plug-in hybrid models including DS 7 Crossback E-Tense 4x4, Peugeot 3008, Peugeot 508 and 508 SW, Citroën C5 Aircross, Vauxhall Grandland X and OPEL Grandland X; and seven new electric models, including DS 3 Crossback E-Tense, the first vehicle of the new electric generation which has just been revealed.
