Wow...Sergio finally got what he wanted.

I'm still struggling to understand how this will help North American sales. Hopefully it bring some much needed new products to the lineup. Does anyone know if the PSA products are engineered for North American markets? Is it an easy task to bring them here? If not - we won't see the fruits of this labour for at least another 3-4 years IMO.

PSA had already said that it was targeting a return to the US market in around 2026, so....

In alfa news, GTV and 8C cancelled

https://www.motor1.com/news/379837/a...-8c-cancelled/

Pretty sure alfa didn't perform any development of the GTV, no mules were testing, if any were it was at private tracks.

Guess crosovers make the most sense for them.

I really am quite interested to see how the US reacts to PSA cars. We (as a population) are infamously weird in our tastes, and, from the little I know of PSA cars, they seem so intensely European that I can't see them doing well here w/o brilliant marketing and some heavy modifications. But we shall see.

There was a video on YouTube of a Peugeot 508 II parked somewhere in the USA, and the people around were clearly interested

I think Peugeot’s current styling would sell quite well here. Same for most Citroens.
