Tokyo: Suzuki Motor Corp. and Volkswagen AG are planning a comprehensive alliance that will include cooperation on hybrid vehicles and management.

The first car to use parts from both Suzuki and Volkswagen may be introduced this year, Suzuki’s chief executive officer Osamu Suzuki said on Friday.

Volkswagen had agreed in December to buy a 19.9% stake in Suzuki for 222.5 billion yen ($2.5 billion).
