The Renault-Nissan Alliance will bring new models to Europe, but it also has the potential to reshape fundamental operations such as finance, distribution, retail and end-of-life disposal of cars.
Renault and Nissan announced they will activate a series of joint “high value creation” projects on Monday involving new cars, vans and pickups.
Beyond cars, several newly announced collaborations could help the partners cut operational costs and increase dealer margins in Europe.
Renault CEO Luca de Meo said, the number of shared dealerships owned by outside investors will be doubled by 2025. “This will substantially increase those investors’ profitability and reduce distribution costs.”
