Opel/Vauxhall to develop next-gen four-cylinder petrols for PSA

By / 4 months ago / News / No Comments

PSA is to draw upon Opel/Vauxhall’s expertise in engine development for its next-generation of petrol engines.

The engines will be used across all Groupe PSA brands

The engines will be used in all group brands in China, Europe and North America and will be developed by Opel/Vauxhall at its engineering centre in Rüsselsheim, Germany.

The new family of engines is scheduled to start arriving in 2022 and will be used in hybrid models too.

Opel/Vauxhall’s managing director engineering, Christian Müller, said: “Rüsselsheim already had global responsibility for engine development when we were still part of GM. With the development of the new generation of four-cylinder petrol engines, we can exploit one of our key competencies. The economic direct-injection, in combination with hybrid technology, will consolidate the strong position of Groupe PSA in lowering CO2 emissions.”
