PARIS May 2 Peugeot and U.S. peer
General Motors are studying an alliance to market vans
outside of Europe that would allow the French car maker to boost
sales volumes and reap royalty revenues, according to Les Echos
For GM, the partnership would not affect the partnership
that its Opel subsidiary has with Renault in Europe on
similar vehicles, the paper said.
Peugeot was not immediately available for comment.
Peugeot and GM, which owns 7 percent of the French group,
announced an alliance last year to share purchasing and
platforms with the aim of saving $2 billion annually.
