BERLIN — Volkswagen Group has signed a memorandum of understanding with Tata Motors to explore cooperation in India, sources close to the matter said, as VW takes a fresh attempt at conquering low-cost markets.

The agreement will enable both carmakers to deepen exchanges about technology, components and platforms and analyze the synergies that may follow a possible cooperation, one of three company sources said.

VW is discussing with its brands and potential partners ways to expand the product portfolio "with tailor-made solutions" in India, a VW spokesman said, reciting a previous statement.

"We confirm that we are in talks with VW for a potential alliance but an announcement will be made at an appropriate time," a Tata spokesman said.
