PSA Peugeot Citroën has introduced the new EMP2 platform (Efficient Modular Platform 2) at their Innovation Day celebration.

Set to underpin a variety of future models in the C & D segments, the EMP2 platform uses are variety of components including high-strength steel, aluminum and composites. This change promises to deliver "increased safety, driving pleasure and comfort" as well as improved fuel efficiency thanks to a 70 kg (154 lbs) weight reduction.

The architecture is also extremely flexible as it has been created to underpin sedans, wagons, coupes and crossovers - just to name a few. The platform will also accommodate fuel saving technologies such as engine stop/start systems, electric power steering units and ultra-low rolling resistance tires.

The EMP2 platform will go into production later this year and will be used on the next-generation Citroën C4 Picasso and Peugeot 308.
