Groupe PSA has been scaling back the number of its platforms worldwide so to sustainably optimize the effectiveness of its R&D costs and its industrial and production processes. This initiative will ultimately lead to the manufacture of all Groupe PSA passenger cars on two multi-energy platforms, namely the Efficient Modular Platform 2 (EMP2) launched in 2013 and the Common Modular Platform (CMP) first launched with the DS3 CROSSBACK.
Groupe PSA has also begun an assertive campaign to introduce electrified versions of its vehicles from 2019. The new models made on these two platforms will be available in internal combustion (petrol and diesel), electric and hybrid versions in tune with the transition of energy deployment.
CMP: the New Modular, multi-energy platform for Groupe PSA
The core models, essentially city cars from all Groupe PSA brands, will be produced utilizing CMP. Starting in 2019, the platform will also be available in a variant equipped with a 100% electric powertrain (eCMP). Groupe PSA plans to launch seven new electric vehicles produced on eCMP by 2021 and 100% of the Groupe PSA range will be electrified by 2025 (vehicles produced on CMP and EMP2).
