EU, stop on diesel and petrol sales from 2035
By 2023, 85% of the Leo brand models will be electrified and 100% electrification will be achieved by 2025 in Europe. The electrification of the Peugeot range began three years ago with the debut of the e-208, and since then the 100% electric models (e-208, e-2008, e-Traveler and e-Expert) and plug-in hybrids ( 3008 and 508) with the Lion logo placed themselves strategically on the market, showing how the brand is one of the most advanced in terms of electric offer in the field of action of Stellantis.
“Electrification is at the heart of our strategy. The good commercial results of our electrified models show that this strategy is paying off in Europe. Internationally, even in markets where electrification is gaining ground, we will use our portfolio of electrified models to distinguish ourselves as an inventive, high-end generalist brand. Wherever we are, we want to be genuine engines of progress“He said Linda Jackson, CEO of Peugeot. This position is also reflected within Stellantis, with Peugeot certainly being at the forefront of electric experience.
