Speaking on the sidelines of the Detroit Motor Show Tavares said the PSA group would be "100% electrified" by 2025, meaning all cars would be available in hybrid or all-electric, the Automotive News website reported.
Until now, Europe's second-biggest carmaker had only committed to having electric options on 80 percent of its range by 2023.
Automotive News quoted Tavares as telling the paper's World Congress that PSA would offer 40 hybrid or fully electric models within seven years.
Tavares also announced that PSA was planning a comeback in the United States after an absence of more than 20 years.
PSA last year took over General Motors' loss-making Opel and Vauxhall operations, in a 2.2-billion-euro ($2.6-billion) deal aimed at narrowing the gap on German giant Volkswagen in Europe.
