PSA has one of its largest manufacturing plants in the NW of Spain, near the city of Vigo. Since Spain is one of the countries that insists it will put a million EV and/or plug-in hybrids on roads by 2014
and is also Europe's 5th largest market, automakers are already introducing plug-in projects - projects that might be able to get €800 million from Spanish taxpayers for their development. Renault
each have one, but PSA, which is always announcing what should be the first diesel
hybrid, has announced an investment of €250 million in its Vigo factory to manufacture hybrid
components. There is no word yet about a hybrid HDI
, but we know PSA is installing Stop&Start systems across its complete range starting in 2010.
