PSA's Collaboration With Mitsubishi Is Strong In Spite of Renault's Recent Move
|   Monday, November 18, 2013
The partnership between PSA Peugeot Citroen and Mitsubishi is not affected by the Japanese's cooperation with rivals from Renault, according to Automotive News. Despite the fact that the alliance between PSA with the Americans from General Motors had suffered from the Chinese partners of both companies, the collaboration between PSA and Mitsubishi will not be affected by the new Japanese intentions.

They have decided to launch a medium class sedan with a Renault platform, on the United States market, in addition to another model, developed on a platform, also from the French manufacturer.
However, PSA spokesmen declined to comment on the new deal made by those from Mitsubishi.

The partnership between Mitsubishi and PSA Peugeot-Citroen covers the production of SUV and electric vehicles. The two companies have a joint vehicle assembly plant, located in Kaluga, Russia, which produces cars for that market. Under the agreement, Mitsubishi produce the SUVs Peugeot 4008 and Citroen C4 Aircross, as well as the Peugeot iOn and Citroen C-Zero. The collaboration between PSA and Mitsubishi also includes the production of the Citroen C-Crosser and Peugeot 5008 models, based on the Mitsubishi Outlander.

IHS Automotive analysts say that the partnership between Renault-Nissan and Mitsubishi endangers the relationship between PSA and Mitsubishi only on the side of the electric vehicles, where the French company does not have large sales anyway. Until then, the French from PSA need a partner for the development of a B-segment hatchback, and a D-segment model, explain automotive analysts, especially after General Motors has given up its part of the deal with PSA Peugeot-Citroen.
