PSA: possibile acquisto di Jaguar-Land Rover

PSA Group boss Carlos Tavares says that he would consider a merger or acquisition with Jaguar Land Rover – as long as it wouldn’t distract the French firm.

 

Tavares has been open about looking to expand PSA – which currently comprises CitroënDSPeugeot and Vauxhall/Opel – through acquisitions or partnerships with other car firms. Tavares led PSA’s purchase of Vauxhall/Opel from GM in 2017.

 

In an exclusive interview with Autocar India, Tavares was asked about rumours of interest in Jaguar Land Rover, which is owned by Indian firm Tata Motors. He said that it would be good for PSA to have a luxury brand, and that the company was “considering all opportunities,” adding he would be interested “as long as it’s not a distraction.”

Tavares said that there had been no discussions with Tata Motors about Jaguar Land Rover yet. He also said that “we don’t have a specific target but if there are opportunities, of course, we will consider it.”

Asked further about adding a luxury brand that would sit about DS, Tavares said: "Why not? Why shouldn’t we discuss it? It depends on what kind of value creation we could generate." 

Jaguar Land Rover has struggled in recent months, hit by falling demand for diesels and the decline of the Chinese market. Recent heavy losses, including an asset writedown, also caused the Tata Group to post a quarterly loss.

Tavares cited PSA’s success in turning around Vauxhall/Opel, which posted its first profit in 20 years recently, suggesting it could have a similar impact on the strugging British firm: “With Opel, we have demonstrated that we can turn around a company that was in the red for 20 years, in 12 months. So this is something we know how to do.” 

 

In a statement to Autocar India, Tata Motors said that Jaguar Land Rover was not for sale. A spokesperson said: “There is no truth to the rumours that Tata Motors is looking to divest its stake in JLR.” 

Following Jaguar Land Rover's 2018 losses, Tata's boss had previously affirmed its commitment to the company.

The Peugeot family, which owns the largest stake in the PSA Group, recently said it would back future mergers or acquisitions, including with the FCA Group.

      Ecco la C3 low cost, creata e nata in India con successivo sbarco in LATAM.

      Seppur leggermente diversa, dovrebbe arrivare anche da noi, tra uno o due anni.

      Progettato quale Global Car, codice interno P44, il piccolo SUV Peugeot 1008 andrà ad affiancarsi alla gamma di successo dei SUV del "Leone" con una progettazione MERCOSUR che vedrà un modello ad alimentazione "convenzionale" e per il "Vecchio Continente" la presenza della sola declinazione elettrica e-1008. La piattaforma è la sempreverde CMP e sarà prodotto negli stabilimenti di Stellantis a Trnava, in Slovacchia a partire dal 2025
      Per quanto riguarda l'aspetto, gli schizzi riportati, lasciano intravedere la linea che seguirà. Lo stesso CEO di Stellantis, Carlos Tavares, ha chiesto espressamente a Matthias Hossann, nuovo Design Director di Peugeot, di rielaborare i progetti realizzati durante l'era del suo predecessore, Gilles Vidal. La 1008 e la sua versione elettrica e-1008 avranno forme cubiche che consentiranno di massimizzare lo spazio nell'abitacolo e nel bagagliaio. Inoltre, mostrerà il suo aspetto avventuroso.
