The BU will be responsible for defining and deploying the Group’s electric vehicle strategy and rolling out the related products and services.

PSA Group aims to offer a differentiated customer experience that creates value and fosters ties with the Group, its five car brands, Peugeot, Citroën, DS and Opel/Vauxhall, and its Free2move mobility brand.

Alexandre Guignard, is appointed Senior Vice President of the BU, responsible for the profitable development of these operations, in all regions concerned, and will lead initiatives to help meet the Group’s CO2 targets, in compliance with the 2020 and subsequent European standards for CO2 emissions.

The challenge for this Business Unit, which benefits from an experience built up over several years within the Group, will be to provide the best vehicles at the best time to satisfy our customers and thereby ensure the best economic conditions for launching PSA Group’s electric vehicles into the market.”
