The alliance between General Motors and PSA Peugeot Citroën is on the skids as the latter company has put the B-common platform project "under review."

While that doesn't sound too bad, a PSA spokesperson told Automotive News "Further analysis showed that the business model just wasn't there" for the Peugeot 208, Citroen C3 and Opel / Vauxhall Corsa replacements. 

PSA spokesman Jean-Baptiste Thomas downplayed the news but confirmed "We have other projects under review. Some projects are not economically feasible, which is why they are dropped, but we're taking the projects one-by-one and examining their economic feasibility first."

Despite the turn of events, PSA says they are still committed to developing crossovers and MPVs with General Motors. The companies also have a joint purchasing organization which has saved PSA approximately €60 ($82.7) million this year alone.
