PSA electric vehicle platform

PEUGEOT and Citroen have presented a new strategy for an electric and plug-in hybrid future.

The PSA Group's plans were unveiled at a special Innovation Day event where the company revealed its models will be developed on two platforms, allowing it to offer a wide range of vehicles from 2019.

One platform will be dedicated to city cars, saloons and compact SUVs, the plan being to introduce four electric models by 2021 - the first due in the next three years.

The second, for compact and premium models, was launched first in 2013 with the new Citroen C4 Picasso and Peugeot 308. From 2019 onwards, it will provide the first plug-in hybrid petrol models.

PSA director Gilles Le Borgne said: "These next-generation hybrid and electric technologies will complement our range of internal combustion engines, thereby enabling PSA Group to offer its customers a diversified line-up of technologies that meet all of their mobility needs."
