Peugeot-owner PSA will use a present Opel site in eastern Europe to assemble 200,000 petrol engines in place of developing new capacity on its own site located in Slovakia as initially planned, Les Echos papers stated.

A representative for PSA refused to talk about whether the engines would be assembled at an Opel site, although he stated that eventually all brand names within the Peugeot group would be built on typical platforms.

He said that the Slovakia gasoline engine module task was being abandoned to provide extra capability to produce more on the future common modular platform (CMP), which will allow the assembly of electric, gas and diesel vehicles.

The French automaker agreed to purchase Germany’s Opel from General Motors in a March deal that estimated the company at 2.2 billion euros.
