Do not listen to the rumors. An alliance between Volkswagen and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) is not about to happen.
In any case, not if we rely on the CEO of Volks, Matthias Mueller. Asked about this at the Geneva Motor Show, Mueller simply replied: “We have other problems” We have other problems.
Despite excellent sales in 2016 , the diesel crisis still hurts Volkswagen. No question, Mueller’s word, to think of an association by the times that run.
It’s another slap in the face of Sergio Marchionne, CEO of FCA, who seems ready to want to associate with anyone who will like him.
For nearly two years, the businessman suggests that a partnership with General Motors would be feasible. It has also returned to the subject lately after the announcement of the transfer of Opel and Vauxhall under the fold of Peugeot .
And despite all these statements, GM continues to deny any interest.
