Renault plants to build new vans for Nissan, Mitsubishi

MAUBEUGE, France (Reuters) – France’s Renault (RENA.PA) said it will build new Nissan and Mitsubishi vans at its domestic plants, raising investment in the country as it explores closer integration of the three-way carmaking alliance with government backing.

Renault will build a new Nissan (7201.T) NV250 delivery van at its factory in Maubeuge, northern France, on an architecture shared with its own Kangoo model, which includes an electric version, Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi said on Thursday.

A larger Mitsubishi (7211.T) model will also be produced in Sandouville alongside Renault’s Trafic van, the alliance said in a statement. The announcement raises Renault’s investment in France this year to 1.4 million euros ($1.6 million), it added.
