The Renault-Nissan Alliance is creating a light commercial vehicle business unit to grow its LCV sales worldwide.
The unit will see Renault’s van expertise and Nissan’s truck know-how combine to grow its global presence in this market. Partners will leverage complementary markets and products while maintaining their own brand identity, sales and revenue.
“The combination of Renault, Nissan and the early collaboration with Mitsubishi Motors in a single Alliance LCV Business Unit will boost sales and deliver greater synergies,” Alliance Chairman and CEO Carlos Ghosn said. “With this move, we plan to expand our market leadership by accelerating our performance in current and new, high-growth markets, based on each company’s core products and market knowledge, and driven by customer needs.”
The Renault-Nissan LCV Business Unit will be led by Ashwani Gupta as Alliance senior vice president. He will report to Carlos Ghosn.
The Unit will continue to maximise cross-development and cross-manufacturing and is expected to deliver further synergies in costs and technology.
