The PSA Group has confirmed that it will offer an electrified version of every new model developed by its five brands – CitroënDS, Peugeot, Opel and Vauxhall – from 2019 onwards.

The French company will offer a fully electric or hybrid version of each new model, with 15 new electrified machines due in the next two years. These include plug-in hybrid (PHEV) versions of the DS 7 CrossbackPeugeot 3008Peugeot 508Peugeot 508 SW and Opel/Vauxhall Grandland X.

Peugeot’s PHEV system will be offered in two versions, with up to 300hp. There will be a four-wheel drive system that features PSA’s 200bhp 1.6-litre Puretech petrol engine with two 80kW motors, powered by a 90kWh battery. A two-wheel-drive version features a 180bhp version of the Puretech 1.6 with one 80kW motor and an 80kWh battery.

Both powertrains will feature an eight-speed automatic gearbox. Peugeot says they will emit less than 49g/km of CO2 and provide an electric-only range of up to 31 miles. The batteries can be charged in one hour from a fast charger.

As well as those eight PHEV models, Peugeot will produce seven fully electric cars, including the recently revealed DS 3 Crossback E-Tense SUV.

The PSA Group has focused its models around two platforms, named CMP and EMP2, which are both designed to accommodate internal combustion, hybrid and full electric powertrains.
