, it has just announced that it is selling its stake in the company for around €250 million.

General Motors bought a 7% stake of PSA on February 29, 2012, and less than two years, it is divesting itself on the investment. GM is selling all 24,839,429 shares that it bought of PSA. GM says that it already has institutional investors to buy the shares. GM never announced the price that it bought the stock for; it is unknown if the sale is creating a profit or loss.

GM announced yesterday that it would continue to develop a new B-segment MPV and C-segment crossover based on PSA platforms. GM will build the MPV, and PSA will build the crossover. It also announced that it is no longer developing a new B-segment platform and new small petrol engine with PSA.

PSA has had financial problems in the past years and is working with Chinese joint venture partner Dongfeng to sell a significant amount of stock.
