BMW and PSA Peugeot Citroen have signed an agreement to jointly develop hybrid powertrains for front-wheel drive vehicles.

Details are limited, but BMW says the tie-up will "standardize key elements for the electrification of vehicles" as well as "leverage significant economies of scale for both partners."

Neither company commented on when the first vehicles would arrive, but BMW has already confirmed plans to offer a front-wheel drive model in the near future. Considering the 0-Series will likely to be built on a MINI platform, it wouldn't be surprising if we saw front-wheel drive hybrids from both brands.
