Everybody is trying to hop on the electrification band wagon and the latest is none other than French automaker, PSA. The company has now announced that it will electrify its entire line-up which will consist of 40 electric models by the year 2025. These will also cover PSA’s brands such as Citroen, DS, Opel, Peugeot and Vauxhall.
PSA CEO, Carlos Tavares, added that the company was looking to introduce partial or fully electric drivetrains in a bid to conform to the future emission laws. PSA is also plotting a return to the U.S. and despite declining to mention which brand will enter the U.S market, it hinted that many future Opel models will be U.S. compliant.
Tavares also disclosed that by the year 2030, 80 percent of the brand’s cars will have some sort of semi and fully automated driving assist tech. The company promises to launch 124 new models over the next six years in various markets across the globe. Earlier this year, Peugeot was spotted testing their 208 hatchback in India. PSA, the parent company of Peugeot, has inked a deal with the CK Birla Group to jointly produce their cars in India by the year 2020. Stay tuned for the details.
