In calendar 2023 PSA will unveil first car on cVMP platform, formally known as EMP2 v4. The new generation of Peugeot 3008 SUV model.

IMO yet again PSA marketing department had pulled a brilliant move calling the platform new although it's not so much.

Platform will be suitable for BEV, PHEV and MHEV. Of course PSA marketing is only raving about BEV.

Platform is for C(compact) and D(midsize) segment cars.

Just to add more material to this story.

Technologically PSA is 3 years behind FCA. Why? New 500 is already capably of housing all of this with batteries in the floor for BEV version:

And to add even more. FCA with Giorgio Global and BMW with CLAR II will have RWD platform capable for this in calendar 2021. One subversion for PHEV/BEV and the other for ICE/MHEV. The goal is to maximize battery capacity for BEV and PHEV versions and to have full capacity fuel tank for PHEV and to have no compromises for cargo volume.

For who know, what is the difference in this platform and CUSW? And will it be suitable for FCA to move onto?

@Mopar392
I don't see much need for this platform in FCA world. Especially not if the next iteration of Small Wide debuting with Tonale late next year will have this set of technologies.

The Tonale won't introduce BEV versions as far as we know. This VMP comes too late for the Tonale (and next 500X, Renegade?) anyway. Otherwise it should be capable. (European) small Jeeps get their 4x4 via electric engine from now on. I just hope they go for the best solutions when consolidating tech instead of politic decisions.

@pumadog

Have you ever seat at the back seat of EMP2 cars like 308 II hatchback or any 508 II?
There is very little or no leg room. Imagine it for a B segments SUV. LOL

Small Wide is a lot more space efficient.
