Renault-Nissan in powertrain deal with Daimler

Renault and affiliate Nissan have announced plans to share gearboxes with Mercedes and develop compact engines with its parent Daimler, expanding their partnership with the German luxury automaker, Reuters has reported. The joint programmes will save production and development costs for all three companies, with output expected to run to more than three million of the four-cylinder engines, Renault-Nissan alliance chief Carlos Ghosn and Daimler counterpart Dieter Zetsche told reporters. Under the agreements announced yesterday at the Paris auto show, Daimler will develop a new range of fuel-efficient, 1.3-litre petrol engines with Renault and license its automatic transmissions to Nissan and its upscale Infiniti brand.
