Another brand of the constellation of Stellantis announces the total transition to sustainable mobility. Peugeot in fact, he confirmed that it will become a brand of electric cars only starting from 2030, underlining that every new model launched in the next decade will be an EV. To anticipate the turning point, the CEO of the car manufacturer of the Lion, Linda Jackson. The total transition to full electric will not affect all markets, with the French brand continuing to produce internal combustion cars for the international market.
“As we move to the new Stellantis, STLA Small, Medium, Large platforms, all our models will be electric by 2030 in Europe”, Jackson said during an interview with Automotive News Europe. “But I still have to make sure I keep the internal combustion offerings for my international customers.” Peugeot will thus anticipate by 5 years the European Commission’s proposal to stop the sale of diesel and petrol cars from 2035, thus joining the group of car manufacturers that has already announced a total transition towards battery-powered mobility. A group that, as previously mentioned, already includes several Stellantis brands, including DS (2026), Alfa Romeo (2027) and Opel / Vauxhall (2028). The move will allow the new group to reach its sales targets, with a market mix that will have to reach 70% of registrations in Europe and over 40% in the United States for low-emission vehicles, both battery and electric hybrid. , by 2030.
Currently the Peugeot range already has a good foundation of electric or hybrid models on plug, including the Peugeot 208, 2008 and 3008 which boasts a plug-in hybrid option. The large SUV will have a battery version in the coming years which will be built in the former PSA plant in Sochaux. The recent revamp of the 308 has also added a PHEV version to its line-up, with the arrival of a full electric variant scheduled for 2023.
