PSA and Dongfeng to develop future electric vehicle platform

LinkedIn +

A new milestone in the strategic partnership between PSA Group and Dongfeng Motors (DFM) has been reached with the two companies set to design an electric version of the common modular platform (CMP) that they have been jointly developing since April 2015.

This future electric platform (e-CMP) will deliver a worldwide offering of all-electric, high-performance B and C segment vehicles for the Peugeot, Citroën, DS and Dongfeng brands from 2019.

PSA Group and DFM also signed a framework agreement designed to increase synergies to develop talent internationally. In practical terms, the agreement will provide for temporary employee exchanges between operational teams in the fields of R&D, marketing, manufacturing, finance and human resources. Best practices will also be shared in each area of HR to identify potential areas of cooperation.
