PSA Group: 27 New BEV or PHEV Models By 2023
PSA Group CEO Carlos Tavares has announced that more vehicles will be plugging in from Peugeot, Citroen and DS brands in the coming years. The company’s previously announced “Push to Pass” strategy included 11 models (4 BEVs and 7 PHEVs) by 2021.
Now Tavares hints that 80 percent of 34 new global vehicles scheduled for introduction by 2023 to be available in all-electric or plug-in hybrid versions. That means at least 27 new EVs from PSA on the near horizon.
PSA Group is not sharing predictions about the share of plug-ins in its future sales mix, but is intends to be ready with EV offers if consumers want to purchase BEVs/PHEVs.
PSA’s upcoming electric Common Modular Platform (e-CMP) will enable 50-kWh battery packs and more than 186 miles (300 km) of real world range. Looks like C segment SUVs with 240 miles (390 km) of range and B segment sedans with 280 miles (450 km) range – based on the lenient NEDC test – are on the table. The plug-in hybrids to be able drive up to 37 miles (60 km) on battery power.
