GENEVA, March 7 French carmaker PSA
has chosen LG and Chinese company CATL as its
partners in the future manufacture of hybrid and electric
vehicles, a PSA executive told Reuters at the Geneva auto show.
PSA's Gilles Le Borgne said LG would provide the battery for
the future DS7 Crossback hybrid model due to come out in 2019,
while CATL would also be involved in the production.
Earlier this week, PSA struck a deal to buy Opel from
General Motors, creating a new European car company to
challenge market leader Volkswagen.
