France May Tax Peugeot and Renault Competitors, Tribune Reports

June 20 (Bloomberg) -- France may introduce a tax on large luxury cars to help slow a drop in demand for smaller models built in the country, La Tribune reported, citing a study commissioned by elected officials of towns with auto plants.

The proposal presents the idea as intended to protect the environment by favoring smaller, less-polluting cars, though it may be a form of protectionism helping PSA Peugeot Citroen and Renault SA, as its goal is stated as “winning back 500,000 vehicles a year,” the French newspaper said.
