Renault-Nissan And Daimler Might Extend Their Platform Alliance
Sep 25, 2013 12:17
Renault-Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn and Daimler CEO Dieter Zetsche are considering extending the platform’s use in order to make the most of their alliance. Will we be seeing some new models soon?
“When we make a platform, we don’t dedicate it to one brand. Platforms belong to companies,” Ghosn told Autonews Europe last week at the Frankfurt auto show. He added that a platform conceived for luxury brands such as Mercedes-Benz and Infinit may prove cost effective for volume brands like Renault and Nissan. “The cost effectiveness doesn’t depend so much on the platform, but on the specifications of the cars that share a platform", Ghosn said.
The MFA architecture is being used in the A-Class, B-Class, CLA and the GLA. Nissan will be using it for the Infiniti Q30.
Ghosn refused to confirm whether Daimler and Nissan might build compact models together at a new plant Nissan owns in Mexico.
