STOCKHOLM, June 20 (Reuters) - France's Renault (RENA.PA: Quote, Profile , Research) and Swedish truck maker AB Volvo (VOLVb.ST: Quote, Profile , Research) are interested in buying auto maker Volvo Cars from Ford Motor Co. (F.N: Quote, Profile , Research), business daily Dagens Industri reported, citing undisclosed sources.
World number two truck maker AB Volvo, which sold its autos unit to Ford almost a decade ago, would be likely to take a minority stake in Volvo Cars of around 10-20 percent, the newspaper reported.
Analysts were doubtful, saying such a move made little industrial sense for AB Volvo.
"This looks like a bad solution for Volvo's shareholders as there is no real industrial logic in buying a stake (in Volvo Cars) ... I think it would be very strange if they would take such a step", Danske Equities analyst Henrik Breum said.
