Peugeot boss says electric cars are not needed
PEUGEOT Chief Executive Officer, Jean-Philippe Imparato, presents a pragmatic approach for the powertrain mix in the Peugeot lineup.

The French brand notes a 10.4% sales increase in 2017 and the reasons for that are growth outside of Europe and more SUVs, which became the hot segment in recent years. However, the Citroën and DS brands shrunk by 7.5% and 38.5%, respectively.
According to Jean-Philippe Imparato, no dedicated electric cars are required for Peugeot to meet CO2 emission requirements.
Because of that, there will be a mix of electric, hybrid, petrol and diesel powertrain. Sadly, electric cars will be based on conventional models.
We had hoped to see the electric version of the Peugeot 208 in Geneva, but that did not happen. –
