PSA and Mitsubishi enter engine collaboration

PSA Peugeot Citroen will supply diesel engines to Mitsubishi Motors Corporation after an agreement was signed today by the two groups.

Mitsubishi will receive its first 2.2 common-rail diesel engines, fitted with a patented particulate filter from PSA in the summer.

Mitsubishi is to introduce its new SUV model the Outlander in Europe this month and, towards the end of 2007, will add a new diesel version powered by the 2.2 PSA diesel engine.

The Peugeot 4007 and Citroen C-Crosser will also use the new engine at their launch this summer too.

PSA and Mitsubishi decided to join forces in July 2005 to develop a new SUV. The two companies said they would continue to pursue cooperation strategies in ‘win-win’ areas.
