Frankfurt: German carmaker Daimler is mulling making passenger cars for its core Mercedes brand with partners Renault and Nissan, as per a news wire report.
The first cars might be constructed jointly from 2016 in Eastern Europe and could include a small Mercedes off-road vehicle, and cars for Nissan's premium brand Infiniti, the wire reported.
Daimler, Renault and Nissan announced their alliance in April 2010, three years after the German manufacturer extricated itself from a tie-up with US carmaker Chrysler, one of the least successful deals in global auto-making.
Daimler, Renault and Nissan have since been forming closer links and exploring ways to share vehicle, engine and other technologies to save development costs and respond faster to market needs.
