PSA to buy GM’s European brands

Graphic News

March 6, 2017 -- French car maker PSA, owners of Peugeot and Citroën, has agreed to buy General Motors’ lossmaking Opel division in a deal valued at €2.2 billion, creating Europe’s second-largest carmaker after Volkswagen.

PSA sold 1.47 million light vehicles in Europe last year accounting for 9.2% of the market, a distant third to VW at 3.56 million registrations and more than 22% of industry sales, according to ACEA data. Renault-Nissan was No.2 at 1.51 million units and a 9.4% share.

The PSA-Opel consolidation would net annual sales approaching 2.5 million units and more than 15% of the market, an overnight gain that puts it fast on the heels of VW and gives PSA greater access to the most profitable markets of Germany and the UK.
