The former CEO of Renault and Nissan was charged with financial misconduct in Japan. Will this affect an FCA Renault deal? We will see. But to what extent could this partnership unfold? For example, Ford and Volkswagen have recently signed a technology sharing and platform sharing agreement, but no equity is exchanged. For FCA and Renault, however, sources claim, "This is not just another partnership – it's more than that." In other words, this could involve some capital transfer.
Both automakers have reportedly also engaged in discussions with other partners, such as the FCA-PSA discussions, but so far nothing has come of it. In the meantime, the Renault-Nissan partnership is under pressure but it is unlikely to end. Established Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi alliance. We bring updates as soon as they arrive.
