Citroen will electrify all its models
PSA Group is pushing its brands to electrification. In the next six years, most of PSA’s vehicles will have electric or hybrid powertrains.
In particular, Citroen is preparing to electrify its models. Citroen CEO Linda Jackson promises that early next decade a wide range of all-electric and plug-in hybrid Citroen models will be available.
Introducing the updated Citroen C4 Cactus hatchback, Mrs. Jackson said that since 2023, 80 percent of their cars would be electrified or become PHEV.
More detailed information is still not available, it is not known how many all-electric and plug-in hybrid models Citroen will be able to offer in Europe.
The Citroen boss cited the example of Chinese demand for plug-in hybrid vehicles, calling it the catalyst for the development of the electric trend in the company. Since China has followed the path of electrifying cars, Citroen should be ready to offer its electric and hybrid vehicles to the Chinese world’s largest car market.
We’d like to remind that recently the French company has officially introduced its updated C4 Cactus model. The 2018 model year car ceased to be positioned as a crossover and became a five-door hatchback. It got a radiator grille in the style of the latest Citroen, new bumpers and large tail lights.
At the same time, the car practically lost its main hightlight – Airbump protective pads. They’ve been removed from the front and rear, as well as from the doors, and left only in the lower part of the body.
