By Ben LevisohnGM confirms that it is in strategic talks with PSA Group regarding potential joint actions to improve profitability, including the possible sale of Opel Vauxhall to PSA.

Within this framework, General Motors and PSA Group regularly examine additional expansion and cooperation possibilities, as well. Moreover, GM has already pulled the plug on the Chevrolet brand in Europe, meaning the company will essentially be abandoning the European market if it sells Opel/Vauxhall. If a deal goes ahead the enlarged business would overtake Renault to become the second-largest European carmaker, after Volkswagen.
The Detroit-based carmaker has repeatedly struggled to turn a profit on its European businesses, which has resulted in some shareholder pushback. However if a transfer of ownership occurs PSA won't be just collaborating with Opel on future products - it will be steering the ship.

Investors applauded the rekindling of the sale concept, driving GM shares up 4.3% to $37.05 in pre-market trading Tuesday.
