Renault and Daimler announced further cooperationJune 4, 2020
Partially related Renault and Daimler currently have no specific new plans. Renault would like to review promising joint projects, and Daimler looks at it positively.
Ten years ago, Renault and Daimler joined forces to exchange platforms and engines. The collaboration was led by the former CEOs Carlos Ghosn (Renault) and Dieter Zetsche (Daimler). It is known that Zetsche is now enjoying his retirement, while Gosna is conducting a lawsuit against his former employer.
The partnership between Renault and Daimler, which at the start took up 3.1%, was reflected in the wide automotive cooperation and the appearance of Citan, but nothing was heard about new joint projects besides it. As for Renault, the time has come for broader cooperation, to which Daimler responded positively, saying that Germany is still open to stimulate joint relations.
“We are again working with his Daimler CEO teams to look into the future of this alliance,” Senard said.
Specific plans have not yet been disclosed, however, as already mentioned, the upcoming Renault Kangoo and Mercedes-Benz Citan are again interconnected, so this is another timely example of a partnership. Naturally, do not forget about the jointly developed Smart ForFour and Renault Twingo. In addition, Mercedes cars (A-Class, Vito) are still available with Renault-Mercedes engines. Even Dacia Duster and Lodgy are sold with an engine, mostly developed by Mercedes.
