VW may take stake in Suzuki

The rumours of a potential match between Suzuki and Volkswagen just keep coming. Last month, reports emerged that Volkswagen AG was interested in a small slice of Suzuki Motors. more recently a Suzuki executive at the Frankfurt Motor Show mentioned that an agreement between the two automakers would be in place by the end of the year.

What at first seems like an unlikely match makes total sense, for Suzuki and VW this connection would be a win-win situation. Suzuki would have access to a variety of VW’s technology, while Volkswagen would have a solid supporting leg in India and Southeast Asian markets.

Neither party has any official word on the matter. However, last Monday Martin Winterkorn, VW’s Chief Executive, said the product portfolio of the Japanese automaker would fit well with his company.
