The first compact and mid-range Peugeot models that already use the new eVMP modular electrical platform could be launched in as little as three years.

Peugeot has been using the EMP2 floorboard since 2013, on which many partially or fully electric models are already built today, from the 508 PHEV to the 3008 PHEV to the e-Traveler and e-Rifter models. The first model built on this platform, the 308, is slowly coming to an end, and the next model will certainly be built on the eVMP floor.

Peugeot and its co-brands (Citroën, DS and Opel) think primarily of mains-chargeable electric cars; hybrid powertrain will only be sold in certain markets.

The battery capacity of the eVMP platform over the wheelbase will be 50 kWh / m, which is the benchmark in the electric vehicle market – the current Peugeot e-Traveler’s longer (3275 mm) wheelbase design will accommodate a 75 kWh battery, while the new eVMP floor plate theoretically has the same wheelbase more than twice that size (163,75 kWh) capacity battery would fit – for this, the construction utilizes the entire space under the floor.

This is in line with the fact that the new architecture will also have twice the range of the e-Traveler: Peugeot will have 400 to 650 kilometers, depending on the wheelbase.

“The eVMP platform project is an excellent example of how we can make cutting-edge, state-of-the-art technologies available to our customers in an affordable way through a cost-effective approach to R&D and pre-production.” Said Nicolas Morel, director of research and development for the PSA group.
