Steve Girsky, GM Vice Chairman, and Philippe Varin, Chairman of PSA Peugeot Citroën Managing Board met at the Maison de l’Automobile in Brussels today where they were seen answering a bevy of questions from journalists. These questions were in regard to the progress made by these two auto majors in the field of global strategic alliance which was announced in February 2012.
It was at the end of the same year that final agreements were signed and sealed in regard to purchasing and logistics besides development of common vehicle projects. These joint development projects have been evenly distributed between both parties so as to ensure maximum advantage from this collaboration. For starters, all C segment MPVs for Opel and Vauxhall, C segment crossover Utility Vehicles for Peugeot brand and B segment MPVs of both auto manufacturers will be developed on PSA Peugeot Citroen platforms.
General Motors on the other hand will be at the helm of development of B segment MPVs of both groups while the updated B segment platform of low emission vehicles for the new generation of Opel, Vauxhall and PSA Peugeot Citroen cars will be undertaken by both parties on a common platform.
