PSA affirms UK electrification strategy
PSA Group has reaffirmed its UK electrification strategy.
At a conference in the UK amongst key figures including decision makers, OEMs and government agencies, PSA shared insight on the progress of the group's developments in internal combustion engine (ICE), battery electric vehicle (BEV) and Plug-in hybrid (PHEV) technologies as well as supplementary electric services and finally the new mobility solutions that will be provided through Free2Move.
Through its trade body SMMT, Groupe PSA are working collaboratively with other OEMs and government on the support packages needed to bring about mass market change.
PSA aims to be one of the major European players in electrified mobility. Its electrification strategy starts with all models launched from 2019 onwards being made available with a plug in hybrid (PHEV) or battery electric (BEV) derivative, in addition to petrol and diesel combustion engines. By 2025, every model sold, both car and light commercial vehicle, will have an electrified version.
In two years, 15 new electrified vehicles will be launched across all brands in the PSA line. These include a variety of passenger cars that are already available to order and these will be joined later in 2020 by more hybrid and battery models.
