The new energy relationship between PSA Peugeot Citroen and BMW is just about done now that BMW and Toyota intensified their cooperation. An Opel executive dashed hopes that the French will be able to use GM technology instead.  “The honest answer is I can’t imagine that,” Opel development chief Rita Forst told  Reuters, when asked if the two companies would share green car technology. 

“There are certain technological genes that a manufacturer cannot share,” Forst said, explaining that unique selling points like these needed to be protected.  Guess that means you won’t see a Volt DNA in a Citroen, and no 3008 diesel hybrid Astra.
