Hot News: Renault-Nissan Joins with Daimler

It’s a done deal! Just as Auto Express exclusively reported last week, the Renault-Nissan alliance and Daimler have signed a deal to share platforms and powertrains. Daimler CEO Dieter Zetsche and Renault boss Carlos Ghosn has personally agreed the deal, announced today in Brussels.

Zetsche commented - “Our skills complement each other very well. Right away, we are strengthening our competitiveness in the small and compact car segment and are reducing our CO2 footprint – both on a long-term basis. We know that we can make brand-typical products based on shared architectures. The individual brand identities will remain unaffected.”

Carlos Ghosn added - “The Renault-Nissan Alliance knows how to work successfully in collaborative partnerships, and this experience is extremely valuable in today’s and even more tomorrow’s global auto industry. This agreement will extend our strategic collaboration and create lasting value for the Renault-Nissan Alliance and Daimler.” For more details click here.
