Groupe PSA considers that being in perfect harmony with the development of the electric vehicle market is a determining factor in the relevance of its offer. Thereby, the group will launch from 2023, vehicles in C- and D-segments from sedan to SUV in different regions of the world. These vehicles will benefit from this new reference platform, eVMP Electric Vehicle Modular Platform.

eVMP concentrates all the Groupe PSA’s engineering know-how with 60 to 100 kWh of embedded energy and an optimised architecture that exploits the entire sub-floor for the battery. By restoring 50 kWh per meter within the wheelbase, it is benchmark in the electric vehicle market and will therefore be able to offer an all-electric range from 400 km to 650 km (WLTP cycle) depending on the body. In order to provide a high-performance solution adapted to each mobility need anywhere in the world, hybrid derivatives may be offered on certain markets on the basis of this state of the art electric platform.

In addition to high level of technical performance, the efficiency of eVMP also lies in the optimisation of R&D and industrialisation costs. This is achieved through the use of certain sub-assemblies and existing high-performance battery modules. In addition, the industrial process has been studied to obtain maximum synergies with the existing means in our plants, therefore limiting investments. In the same logic of making in-house electrical components, this platform complements parts developed and manufactured with Groupe PSA or with its e-motors or ACC Joint venture.
