Renault is considering building Mercedes-based car

A project that will have Renault use a Mercedes platform in order to build a luxury car has alredy been initiated by the French carmaker, which at the moment is evaluating the idea, without having given the green light to the vehicle. According to Carlos Ghosn, Renault CEO, at least one Mercedes-based premium vehicle is going to help the French carmaker. As Renault did not succeed in providing a viable plan for espace and Laguna successors, the French governement, which has 15 percent of the Renault shares, urged the company to adopt a new approach so that it could remain active in the large car sector. A partnership between Renault and Daimler has already been established, aiming to co-develop the platform of the next-generation Renault Twingo and smart ForFour, while Nissan is planning to borrow the new B-Class platform, in order to develop a future Infiniti model.
