Alliance Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi - is by far one of the largest in the production of passenger cars in the world. Companies Renault and Nissan, included in its structure, thought about the merger.
We remind you that now Renault owns 43% of Nissan shares, and Nissan, in turn, owns 15% of Renault. In addition, Nissan controls Mitsubishi Motors. If the merger is approved, Carlos Ghosn will become the head of the new company, who today is the managing director of Nissan and Renault.
Experts agree that when merged into a single company, it will be easier for them to resist their main competitors in the face of the Volkswagen AG concern and Japanese Toyota. Within one company, it will be easier to assemble cars on a "new energy" (NEV) and to develop a carchering service.
Last fall, the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi alliance announced a $ 17 billion investment in the development of four platforms where 40 autonomous vehicles and 12 electric vehicles will be assembled. Triumvirat expects that the implementation of electric vehicles up to 2022 will be 9 million copies.
