Under existing plans, the alliance is seeking to increase synergies - from cost cuts or avoided and revenue enhancements - to 5.5 billion euros next year from 5 billion recorded in 2016. Around 75 percent of total sales from the group would come via the common platforms, and by 2022, it aims to generate $240 billion in revenues.
