Opel to build next Zafira at PSA plant in Sochaux, France

Article by Anita Panait, on September 26, 2013

Opel will build the next generation Zafira minivan at PSA/Peugeot-Citroen's plant in Sochaux, France, Les Echos has reported. Opel is currently producing the Zafira at its Bochum site in Germany, which is set to be shut down by the end of 2014. Zafira’s production at Sochaux is part of an agreement inked in early 2012 between Opel and PSA, according to the French newspaper, citing unidentified sources privy to the matter.

General Motors invested EUR320 million ($418 million) in 2012 to acquire a 7 percent stake in PSA as part of an alliance that entails joint purchasing and vehicle development aimed at improving their results in Europe.

Les Echos added that the agreement could also entail Opel’s Zaragoza site in Spain building Citroen’s C3 Picasso small minivan. The site currently builds the Meriva small minivan, Corsa subcompact and Mokka small SUV.
