PARIS (Reuters) -- General Motors Co. and PSA/Peugeot-Citroen are studying an alliance to sell large commercial vans outside of Europe, a French newspaper said.
The partnership would allow PSA to boost sales volumes and reap royalty revenues, according to Les Echos.
For GM, the partnership would not affect the partnership that its Opel/Vauxhall subsidiary has with Renault in Europe on similar vehicles, the paper said earlier this week.
GM and Renault cooperate on developing and building the Opel/Vauxhall Vivaro and Renault Trafic vans and the Opel Movano and Renault Master vans.
PSA and GM, which owns 7 percent of the French automaker, announced an alliance last year to share purchasing and platforms with the aim of saving $2 billion annually.
