Carlos Ghosn: “The Renault-Nissan alliance is not looking for new partners”

Carlos Ghosn, Renault-Nissan CEO, said that the group synergies and current collaborations are sufficient to ensure the success of the alliance in the future, no need for an additional partner.


Renault-Nissan, the Franco-Japanese alliance headed by Carlos Ghosn, does not need an additional partner in the near future. The news comes from a statement corporation director who believes he can achieve all of the company’s long-term goals without having to expand the list of collaborations. In 2014, Renault-Nissan has saved more than three billion euros through group synergies and sharing of costs and technology to economy growth in 2013, 2.8 million. Because of these savings realized through cost sharing in different directions, those of the Renault-Nissan may remain competitive without having to seek new partnerships in the market.

By 2016, Renault-Nissan Alliance is the aim of saving 4.3 billion euros per year. The alliance between the two producers was signed in 1999 and rescued the Japanese financial problems encountered. Carlos Ghosn was one of the people responsible for the return to profit of this company and is currently the CEO of both brands. Among the elements that help Renault-Nissan alliance to include developing shared savings necessary technology electric vehicles, passive and active safety systems and autonomous driving technologies. Obviously, the two companies savers and the production of common components between their models and their transport to dealerships worldwide.

Carlos Ghosn‘s statements are related, most likely, Sergio Marchionne‘s intentions to form a new alliance with another carmaker. Director of Fiat Automobiles and Chrysler intends to sign such an alliance will retire from the company. Marchionne has motivated the need for an alliance with another manufacturer, whatever it may be, in order to bring the cost savings to support high investment needed to develop new generations of cars that need to be significantly safer and more efficient than those they replace and their sales are not always able to offset development costs.
