Renault-Nissan land 15,000 Danone fleet deal

The Renault-Nissan Alliance will provide 15,000 vehicles in an exclusive fleet contract with the Paris-based nutritional food company Danone.

The deal is the first of its kind for the Alliance, which will see it provide a full range of vehicles to Danone in 25 countries for at least five years.

Danone, one of the fastest growing food companies in the world, said it selected the Renault-Nissan Alliance for its wide product line-up, its experienced fleet sales and services organization and its global sales footprint, which matches that of Danone.

Danone fleet managers can select vehicles from four brands under the Renault-Nissan Alliance: Renault, Dacia, Nissan and Infiniti. The product range stretches from passenger cars in the A to the E segments and commercial vehicles, including electric models. The highest volumes will be in Russia, Mexico and France.

The contract will last until 2017.

The Renault-Nissan Alliance is a strategic partnership between Paris-based Renault and Yokohama, Japan-based Nissan, which together sell one in 10 cars worldwide.

The companies, which have been strategic partners since 1999, sold 8.03 million cars in nearly 200 countries in 2011. Since its founding 12 years ago, the cross-cultural Renault-Nissan Alliance has expanded significantly, particularly into emerging markets.
