Will serve hybrid and fully-electric vehicles.
Is engineered for larger (for Europe) C-segment vehicles.
PSA’s line-up will be fully electric in the near future.
As PSA prepares to move to electrification, they have revealed a new platform, called eVMP, designed to support hybrid and electric compact vehicles.
This new platform will premiere in 2023 with the third generation of the Peugeot 3008. eVMP stands for “Electric Vehicle Modular Platform” and is a central building block for PSA’s move towards a fully-electric future, according to insideevs.com.
Currently, PSA has two platforms, EMP2 and CMP. The latter has an electrified version called eCMP while EMP2 is dedicated to PHEV vehicles. The new eVMP structure is designed for EVs however can be configured as a hybrid.
The eVMP was developed using the EMP2 which means costs were kept at a minimum. This also indicates that it will be possible to almost seamlessly integrate the new platform into existing plants and production lines.
The eVMP will enable both FWD and AWD setups, with up to 335 horsepower, and hold battery packs ranging in size between 60 kWh and 100 kWh. With the larger pack, the vehicle should be rated for up to 404 miles (650 km) of range according to the WLTP cycle.
C and D-segment vehicles, so compact and midsize for us North Americans, will be this platform’s focus. By 2025, the eCMP will have evolved and will be part of PSA’s twin-EV platform plan, with the eVMP.
Finally, as PSA and FCA become Stellantis, synergies will be possible where these platforms may find their way under Dodge and Chrysler products, among others.
