PARIS (Reuters) - French carmaker Renault said on Monday that it was in talks with its Japanese partners Nissan and Mitsubishi Motor over a new alliance body for the three companies.
“In response to recent press reports, Renault confirms that it is in discussions with its Alliance partners Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. and Mitsubishi Motor Co., Ltd. regarding the establishment of a new Alliance body in order to enhance and ensure further collaboration,” Renault said in a statement.
