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.

      There is no concrete plan for cooperation with Proton.

      Hmmmm. Malaysian flavored snail-mobiles. Yummy. (NOT).

      Seriously, Proton had to pull out of the European market because their vehicles were so sub-standard. They still sell cars in Britain new, but Britain was one of the last Western European countries to import Ladas, too. So what does that tell you about the lowest end of the British car buyer market?
