    FCA in talks to forge extensive ties with Renault, report says

    Article from Automotive News. https://www.autonews.com/automakers-...lt-report-says

    Who'll be the winner of the FCA derby between RN and PSA?

    LONDON -- Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is in advanced discussions to forge extensive ties with Renault, the Financial Times reported on Saturday, citing multiple people informed on the talks.

    The newspaper said the automakers were seeking to join forces to tackle structural challenges facing the global auto industry. The Wall Street Journal posted a similar story on Saturday afternoon.

    An agreement might ultimately lead FCA to join the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance in the future, sources told the newspapers, while also warning that this outcome would mean taking a complicated path that would involve winning over Nissan.

    FCA has also been holding cooperation talks with PSA Group about sharing platforms but the talks with Renault have moved beyond sharing technology and have advanced faster than those with PSA, the Financial Times said.

    The discussions with Renault are ongoing and could still fall apart, the sources told Financial Times, cautioning that a number of structures and options are being considered. It is unclear to what extent Nissan has been involved so far in the discussions, the paper said.

    Reports about FCA's discussions with PSA began emerging in March.

    PSA said in a statement to Bloomberg that it is open to “opportunities that would create value on a long-term basis,” but based on 2018’s financial results, “there is no hurry to finalize any partnership,” according to an email statement.

    Is there still a company available that doesn't show an interest into FCA yet?

    It's FCA trying to generate interest as it won't survive the way things are moving towards platform rationalisation and BEVs

    Is getting involved with the Renault-Nissan mess a good option for FCA? Is it just to prod others to act?

    Good Point.

    Think Renault-Nissan is a mess and aren't they already tied in with Mercedes?

    Don't think FCA wants to have to deal with Mercedes again.

    A FCA/PSA deal makes more sense with FCA getting a sorted out Car/FWD SUV line and PSA getting N.A. market access along with the two hottest brands in the industry (Jeep/RAM).

    I'm thinking Nissan will be cast out of the tie-up and FCA is the replacement.

    Electrics are more a happy hypothesis than The Final Solution To All Mankind's Problems at this point.

    The all-wise all-knowing all-controlling-wannabe Globalists and EUrocrats and UN drones and US tools n fools--but I repeat myself--see electrics as ecstacy* and nirvana.

    With no apparent awareness that petroleum pretty much made 20th century Western Civilization possible--and fantastically, unbelievably wealthy--the Wise Ones think they have A Better Idea (old Ford ad campaign). Because they, or rather their puppetmasters, thought of it. That's not how markets and capitalism work. That's the road off the cliff.

    Maybe ChryCo knows something we don't?

    Drug
    Description3,4-Methyl​enedioxy​methamphetamine, commonly known as ecstasy, is a psychoactive drug primarily used as a recreational drug. The desired effects include altered sensations and increased energy, empathy, and pleasure. When taken by mouth, effects begin after 30–45 minutes and last 3–6 hours.

    Isn't Nissan casting themselves out? The Emperor has jailed his competition and once the dust and/or fallout settles, Nissan will be in...

    The deal then Mercedes did with Renault, they did it by pinching their noses from what I saw on these French articles.

    And that other French article jump the gun as if a deal was already made.

    FCA going to Renault and PSA getting Land Rover Jaguar m perhaps, GM should buy Saab again and make it their EV brand for Europe?

    Hopefully FCA's Ferrari will teach Renault how to make formula 1 engines. They seem to have lost the ability.
