GM Could Sell Commercial Vehicles From PSA On The U.S. Market
|   Tuesday, July 16, 2013
General Motors and PSA Peugeot-Citroen have discussed the possibility of selling commercial vehicles belonging to the French group in the United States market, informs Reuters. This move would increase the sales of the American group and help the European factories of the French partner.
According to Reuters, General Motors would consider the Peugeot models for market introduction in the United States. These could be products marketed under the brand General Motors, benefiting both its image and service and distribution network, as explained by a business publication in France.


At an official level there wasn't any decision taken in this regard yet. Currently, the partnership between PSA and GM is limited to the development and production of successors for models of the smaller segment in the portfolio.

Ironically, the PSA Peugeot-Citroen alliance already has an agreement for the development of light commercial vehicles, just with the number one rival, of the General Motors, Toyota Motor Company. Specifically, the Toyota ProAce shares platform, engine and the bodywork with the Citroen Jumpy and Peugeot Expert, the model which is said to be imported into the United States market. The model can provide three different loading volumes of 5, 6 and 7 cubic meters, depending on the length and the height of the body.

Peugeot already has a full line of commercial van vehicles in its hand, from the compact Partner and Bipper, to the sizeable Expert and Boxer models, which come in a variety of cargo and people-carrying configurations. Meanwhile, General Motors has to do with the old Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana range. However, a recently sealed deal with Nissan for a Bowtie'd version of the Japanese carmaker's NV200 small cargo van called City Express has also been signed.
