PSA group – In 2023, the new electrical platform eVMP

The PSA group will launch in 2023, a new platform developed exclusively for electric vehicles. It’s called eVMP (acronym for Electric Vehicle Modular Platform), and represents an evolution of the Emp2, the current base of many models of the manufacturer transalpine.

The strategy. The eVMP, developed cost-as derived from the Emp2 and able to minimize the investments for the adaptation of the production facilities, will be the basis for future electric vehicles in segments C and D (from compact sedans till Suv medium) and will be one of the two platforms that the group the French will use to strengthen its strategies of electrification. The second should debut in 2025, and result from the Cmp, it is used today for the city-car and small. The two new architectures will enable the PSA to gradually switch from the two platforms “multi-energy” two-exclusively dedicated to electric vehicles or still electrified. The eVMP, in fact, can also be used for models with power supplies hybrid according to the needs of the market to satisfy.

Features. The eVMP, according to the company transalpina, will design and produce vehicles with autonomies ranging between 400 and 650 km in the cycle Wltp and a storage capacity of 50 kWh per meter which is available between the two axes”. Thanks to an architecture optimized to exploit the full background of the case, it will be possible to mount battery packs with a capacity between 60 and 100 kWh, that will feed up to two electric motors with a maximum power of 340 HP. The first model is based on the new platform should be a C-Suv, probably the new generation of the Peugeot 3008. Of course, in the light of the forthcoming merger with Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, is not to exclude the possibility that the new eVMP, as the future eCMP, serve as the basis for the next models of the brands of the manufacturer, the Italian-american in the framework of a growing and pervasive sharing of parts and components.
