One year after launching its new-generation urban electric cars, PSA Peugeot Citroen is the European leader in the EV market, with a share of nearly 30%.
Since the launch of its electrical car line-up, PSA Peugeot Citroen has delivered nearly 4,000 electric cars and booked more than 6,000 orders.
PSA Peugeot Citroen was the first carmaker to introduce electric cars in Europe starting in late 2010, with the Peugeot iOn and the Citroen C-ZERO.
The Group’s EV line-up also includes two electric commercial vehicles, the Peugeot Partner Origin and Citroen Berlingo First, which were also brought to market in 2010.
Most initial sales were to B2B customers, with key accounts, multinationals, and national and local government authorities accounting for 90% of sales. The Group has implemented a number of mobility projects with companies that include General Electric, Deutsche Bahn, SNCF, Kone, Airbus, EDF, GDF Suez, Allianz, Europcar and ChoosEV.
A strong believer in the potential of electric mobility, PSA Peugeot Citroen is planning to extend its customer base to small and medium-size companies and early adopters attracted by the benefits of EVs.
The future of electrical cars also includes the development of solutions like the Mu by Peugeot personalized mobility offering and the Citroen Call Car rental service, which are based on a new vision of mobility.
The electric vehicle is a central tenet of the Group’s strategic commitment to addressing the environmental challenges facing carmakers, communities, businesses and private car owners.
The Group has introduced a number of technological solutions adapted to an array of customer needs and designed to drive powerful breakthroughs in fuel efficiency and CO2 emissions.
