Back in February, GM announced that it was going to buy seven percent of PSA Peugeot Citroën, as part of the plans of the new global strategic alliance between the two automakers. Now PSA Peugeot Citroën and General Motors have confirmed some of the key steps of the new alliance.
The alliance has identified four common vehicle projects to move to the next step:

1. A joint program for a compact-class Multi-Purpose Van for Opel/Vauxhall and a compact-class Crossover Utility Vehicle for the Peugeot brand.
2. A joint Multi-Purpose Vehicle program for the small car segment for Opel/Vauxhall and the Citroen brand.
3. An upgraded low CO2 small car segment platform to feed Opel/Vauxhall’s and PSA’s next generation of cars in Europe and other regions.
4. A joint program for mid-size cars for Opel/Vauxhall and the Peugeot and Citroen brands.

The Alliance aims to launch the first vehicles on these common programs by the end of 2016.
