Groupe PSA has announced a move from two ‘multi-energy platforms’ to two 100 per cent electrified platforms between 2020 and 2025.
From 2023, the group will launch a new electric vehicle modular platform for its larger vehicles.
By restoring 50 kWh per meter within the wheelbase, it is benchmark in the electric vehicle market and will therefore be able to offer an all-electric range from 250m/400 km to 406m/650 km (WLTP cycle) depending on the body.
Nicolas Morel, research and development director at Groupe PSA said: “With this eVMP platform, Groupe PSA once again demonstrates its ability to innovate by developing for its customer’s state-of-the-art and affordable technologies thanks to the frugality that has enabled a significant reduction in research and development and industrial investments.
“This global platform will make it possible to offer a range of vehicles that are perfectly respectful of the environment, meeting the changing expectations of our customers and guaranteeing driving pleasure and safety on board, values that are the basis of the Group’s reputation today.”
