PSA and GM Scrap Plans for Large Sedan - Will Work on Small Petrol Engines
Now, though, the two groups have announced that they are dropping all plans to make a large sedan, and will now concentrate on the development of small capacity petrol engines, based on Peugeot’s already released EB series, which currently includes a 1.0-liter unit and a 1.2-liter unit, both with three cylinders, and both available under the bonnet of the all-new Peugeot 208.
They will also jointly develop a compact crossover for Peugeot, as well as a compact multipurpose vehicle for Opel and Vauxhall. Another common project will be a subcompact vehicle for both PSA and Opel (and Vauxhall) - most likely a replacement for the aging 107 and C1.
Furthermore, they will explore additional alternatives for the South American market, which still has a lot of untapped potential, especially in fast-growing economies, such as that of Brazil.
