The alliance says it wants to find efficiencies across the group, particularly by running factories at full capacity. Renault will handle next-generation B-SUVs, A/B passenger cars and electric powertrains for each of these segments.

Under the latest initiative, Nissan Motor Co. will focus on China, North America and Japan; Renault on Europe, Russia and South America and North Africa, and Mitsubishi on Southeast Asia and Oceania, for the benefit of the entire alliance.
