Groupe PSA inaugurates the multi-energy Powertrain Expertise Centre to support the energy transition

Groupe PSA has inaugurated its multi-energy Powertrain Expertise Centre (CEP) in Carrières-sous-Poissy (France).

The CEP is dedicated to electrified, gasoline and diesel powertrains. The facility will address electrification challenges in cooperation with the headquarters of the Nidec-PSA electric motors joint venture, which specializes in the design, development, manufacture and sale of electric traction motors.

The Powertrain Expertise Centre brings 1,300 employees together in a single location offering 15 hectares of surface area and nearly 80 test benches for assessing vehicle, powertrain and motor performance. A total of €32 million has been committed to fund testing resources to develop new competitive powertrains.

The Powertrain Expertise Centre is one of nine R&D centers that support the Group’s development via multi-brand, multi-region programs in the following countries: France (Belchamp, Carrières-sous-Poissy, La Ferté Vidame, Sochaux, Vélizy); Germany (Rüsselsheim); Morocco (Casablanca); China (Shanghai); and Brazil (São Paulo).

The Powertrain Expertise Centre will support Groupe PSA’s electrification offensive. Our development teams are firmly focused on making the energy transition to meet our customers’ expectations and offer them technologies that are increasingly efficient in reducing emissions and energy consumption.

—Gilles Le Borgne, Executive Vice President, Quality and Engineering at Groupe PSA
