PSA is already present in India through its “Push to Pass” plan, that started in 2017 with two joint ventures with New Delhi-based conglomerate CK Birla Group, both of them are based out of Tamil Nadu.

The partnerships concentrate on the assembly and distribution of vehicles and the manufacture and supply of powertrains in the country.
