Fiat Chrysler and Peugeot owner PSA plan to join forces through a 50-50 share swap to create the world's fourth-largest automaker, they said on Thursday, triggering a new wave of consolidation in the car industry.
Key takeaway from the article, perhaps appropriate to the relatively small Subaru presence in Europe:
"In Europe, Fiat and PSA, with its Peugeot and Citroën brands, will surpass Volkswagen to become market leaders. They also have a strong lineup of SUVs, which are increasingly popular with European buyers. "
I'll leave others to decide the matter of how reliable the newer EVs will prove to be that they purport to be uniting to build - neither the Peugeot nor the Citroën brands have been in the US market for quite a while.
