Peugeot sets profit goal for recovering auto division

PARIS, April 14 (Reuters) - PSA Peugeot Citroen pledged to achieve a 2 percent automotive division operating margin in 2018 as new Chief Executive Carlos Tavares outlined a recovery plan for the struggling French carmaker on Monday.

Peugeot will cut costs and reduce its number of models to restore profitability from a loss of 1.042 billion euros ($1.45 billion) at the core manufacturing division last year, or 2.9 percent of sales, the company said in a statement.
