PSA Group to electrify all of its compact vans within a year
Zero CO2-emission deliveries and services with the new Peugeot e-Partner, Citroën ë-Berlingo van, Opel Combo-e and Vauxhall Combo-e, will be available by the end of 2021, the PSA Group have announced. This means 100% of PSA’s Light Commercial Vehicles portfolio will be electrified before the end of the next year.
Since 2019, the PSA Group has launched all-electric or plug-in hybrid versions of all its new models. The group’s aim is to offer a fully electrified portfolio by 2025.
Following the 2020 launch of electric versions of their medium van models (D-Van) and large van (E-Van), the four brands, Peugeot, Citroën, Opel and Vauxhall, will complete their line-ups in 2021 with all-electric versions of their compact van (B-Van) and associated passenger cars.
The electric compact vans and the battery packs will be assembled at the Vigo plant (Galicia, Spain), the electric motors in Tremery (France) and the final drive gears in Valenciennes (France).
With these all-electric versions of compact vans and associated passenger cars, Groupe PSA is continuing its electrification offensive and now offers a completely electrified LCV portfolio without compromises on performance” – says Xavier Peugeot, Senior Vice-President of Groupe PSA’s Light Commercial Vehicles Business Unit.
