- Portfolio of jointly developed major projects has jumped from three to ten
- Nissan and Daimler have completed factory building for the joint production of engines in the USA
The French-Japanese-German partnership began in April 2010, with three “pillar projects” primarily focused on Europe. Since then, the portfolio has increased to ten significant projects, including major initiatives from North America to Japan. In addition, relevant business units are working together in best-practice sharing and other forms of cooperation.
“While our initial collaboration focused strongly on European projects, we are now focusing on synergies in all key markets”, Renault-Nissan Chairman and CEO Carlos Ghosn said today at an annual media briefing on the partnership. “The largest economies of scale are always global.“
“We will continue to seek out new projects together that make sense for all partners and, most importantly, our customers”, Daimler CEO and Head of Mercedes Benz Cars Dieter Zetsche said.
