Nissan and Renault to share all new engines

When Nissan and Renault formed an alliance in 1999, the two automakers cited cost cutting reasons and increased product sharing and purchasing power. Today, with the global economy struggling, those benefits are required more than ever. So it’s not surprising to hear that Nissan and Renault plan to begin sharing virtually all new engines moving forward.

According to reports, Nissan will focus on gas-powered engines and Renault will stick with it’s successful diesels. Now, both automakers can focus on improving the performance and reducing the environmental impact of both engine lines. If successful, the automotive alliance hopes this deal will generate $1.8 billion USD in positive cash flow in 2009.
