Every new Peugeot model launched in Europe by 2030 will be full-electric only, CEO Linda Jackson says, as the Stellantis brand prepares for the transition away from internal combustion engines.
There will continue to be internal-combustion based models in Peugeot’s lineup for international buyers, Jackson added.
“As we move on to the new “Stellantis” platforms, STLA Small, Medium, Large, by 2030 in Europe all of our models will be electric,” Jackson told Automotive News Europe. “But I still have to make sure I maintain internal-combustion offerings for my international customers.”
Peugeot’s move would come five years ahead of the EU’s proposal to mandate only zero-emissions vehicles in 2035. A number of automakers have already announced they will be all-electric in Europe well ahead of that date.
Other Stellantis brands have previously given dates when they plan to be all-electric — meaning they will launch only full-electric models — including DS (2026), Alfa Romeo (2027) and Opel/Vauxhall (2028).
CEO Carlos Tavares has said Stellantis is targeting more than 70 percent of sales in Europe and more than 40 percent in the U.S. to be low-emissions vehicles, either battery or hybrid electric, by 2030.
Peugeot’s current lineup is 70 percent electrified, meaning either full-electric or plug-in hybrid. That includes its most popular models, the 2008 small SUV and 208 small car (electric option) and the 3008 compact SUV and 308 compact car (plug-in hybrid, with a full-electric 308 due in 2023), as well as all commercial and passenger vans (electric option). Only the soon-to-be discontinued 108 minicar and 5008 midsize SUV are not electrified.
