Each model of the French alliance, issued after 2019, will receive a hybrid or fully electric modification

The French concern PSA, which includes the brands Peugeot, Citroen, DS, Opel and Vauxhall, announced that each model developed after 2019 will receive a hybrid or fully electric version. This is reported by Carscoops.

In the next two years, the PSA is going to bring 15 new electrified models to the market. Eight of them will be recharged hybrids: DS 7 Crossback E-Tense 4×4, Peugeot 3008, Peugeot 508 and 508 SW, Citroën C5 Aircross, Vauxhall Grandland X and Opel Grandland X.

The remaining seven will receive fully electric power plants. The basis of all new models will be the modular platforms CMP and EMP2, on which it is possible to build cars with both classical and electrified power units.

The last electric car of the French alliance was the crossover DS3 Crossback E-Tense, presented in September. The engine produces 100 kW, equivalent to 136 horsepower. The motor is powered by a set of lithium-ion batteries for 50 kWh, which allow you to travel without recharging up to 300 kilometers (according to the world cycle WLTP).
