Vélizy-Villacoublay, 28 October 2020 – Groupe PSA revenue amounted to €15,453 million in Q3 2020 compared to €15,579 million in Q3 2019.
Automotive division revenue amounted to €11,964 million up by 1.2% compared to Q3 2019. A strong product mix (+5.8%) as well as positive price actions (+1.5%), other effects (+2.7%) and an increase of sales to partners (+0.1%) more than offset the decrease of volumes and country mix (-6.8%) and the negative impact of exchange rates (-2.1%) mainly driven by the Turkish lira and Argentinean peso.
The strong product mix stems from the success of the Group's last launches in particular Peugeot 208, Peugeot 2008, Opel Vauxhall Corsa, all available with a BEV and ICE version, and Citroën C5 Aircross PHEV.
The Group has sold 589,000 cars in the world in Q3 2020 while continuing to prioritize profitability and cash generation.
