PSA Peugeot Citroen may soon be adding a little Malaysian flavor to its French automotive cuisine. A company spokesperson has verified that the firs are in talks regarding a larger-scale joint venture.

The splendiferously-named Syed Zainal Abidin Syed Mohd Tahir, Proton's managing director admitted in a news conference that plans for some kind of alignment are fairly far along, but no details were provided about what sort of technology or vehicles may be shared.

PSA is no stranger to the joint-venture scene, as it already has arrangements with Toyota, Mitsubishi, Ford.
