Who We Are

With three world-renowned brands, PSA Group sold over 3 million vehicles worldwide in 2016. The Peugeot, Citroën and DS brands each have distinct identities and market a broad range of vehicles that meets an even broader range of customer expectations. With our recent acquisition of Vauxhall and Opel, PSA Group has become the second largest European car manufacturer.

We are an award winning manufacturer and our accolades include the new Peugeot 3008 SUV winning Car of the Year 2017, our Grand C4 Picasso was given the title of ‘Best MPV’ in the Auto Express New Car Awards 2016 alongside our exciting ventures for our DS brand with Virgin Racing in Formula E. We have also just opened a new business unit called Free2Move-Lease which is a powerhouse in business vehicle leasing.

Our strategy to success is based on the ‘Push to Pass’ plan – this opened a new chapter in the Group’s history. As well as setting out the strategic focuses and specific objectives, it represents the first steps towards achieving the Company’s vision, to be the most efficient car maker and the preferred mobility services provider worldwide.
