Daimler Weighs Small-Car Production With Renault-Nissan

Daimler and the Renault-Nissan alliance are considering expanding their cooperation to team up on manufacturing future small-car models.

“We have started a feasibility study investigating benefits from development and production of joint components for the next generation of compact cars,” Thomas Froehlich, a Daimler spokesman in Stuttgart, Germany, said by e-mail today. The review is ongoing and no decisions have been finalized.

Joint production of Daimler and Nissan vehicles could start as early as next fall in the Mexican facility, which is under construction, the Nikkei newspaper reported yesterday.
