Renault-Nissan Alliance sets up global LCV unit

Renault-Nissan Alliance LogoThe Renault-Nissan Alliance is creating a light commercial vehicle business unit to expand its global presence in this buoyant segment. It will be led by Ashwani Gupta as Alliance senior vice president and he will report to Alliance Chairman and CEO Carlos Ghosn. By unleashing the full potential of Renault’s van expertise and Nissan’s truck know-how in key markets, the Alliance intends to grow its LCV sales worldwide while maintaining the individual brand identities.

The Unit will continue to maximise cross-development and cross-manufacturing and is expected to deliver further cost savings and technology sharing. Renault and Nissan have established cross-production of vans and trucks over the last several years; the Nissan NV300 and NV400 vans are built on the Renault Trafic and Master platforms respectively, and the Renault Alaskan pick-up is built on the Nissan Navara platform. The new LCV Business Unit will also handle Nissan’s body-on-frame SUVs, including the Nissan Armada and Nissan Patrol.

“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,” said Ghosn. “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.”
