The alliance between General Motors and PSA Peugeot Citroën appears to be unraveling as Reuters is reporting the American automaker is becoming increasingly confident that they can make Opel and Vauxhall profitable on their own.

The alliance between General Motors and PSA Peugeot Citroën appears to be unraveling as Reuters is reporting the American automaker is becoming increasingly confident that they can make Opel and Vauxhall profitable on their own.

While initial reports blamed PSA Peugeot Citroën for putting the B-common platform project "under review," sources are indicating General Motors will likely pull out of the project and develop the next-generation Opel / Vauxhall Corsa by themselves. Set to be launched in late 2018, the Corsa is now expected to ride on the G2XX platform which could also be used on the next-generation Chevrolet Sonic / Aveo, Buick Encore and Opel / Vauxhall Mokka.

While a PSA spokesperson said a "business model just wasn't there" for jointly-developed Peugeot 208, Citroen C3 and Opel / Vauxhall Corsa replacements, analysts believe the GM-PSA alliance was negatively effected by news that Dongfeng could buy a 30% stake in PSA Peugeot Citroën.
