Alex wroteIsn't Renault/Nissan effectively the same company ?
Got to agree, if it was produced with only minor differences from the concept then I'd be rushing to join the queue
Sorry Alex, my mistakeThey are not the same company.
Apart from Carlos Ghosn being CEO of both companies they are seperate companies. They have a share based alliance.
They have their own
Head Offices (same place in the UK)
Parts distribution centres (same place in the UK)
How the alliance works in short is that the 2 companies try as much as possible not to target the same market.
Notice how Renault dosent have any 4x4's
or how Nissan dosent market any family hatchbacks
Another side of Nissan you dont see is their forklift production up in Bardon.
Alot of the the back end infrustructure for the companies runs through France but they remain seperate entities.
