Renault-Nissan Alliance FINALLY Gets Top Global Spot

Carlos Ghosn’s promise that his Renault-Nissan Group would become the world’s biggest car manufacturer before the end of the year has seen the light of day with the recent half yearly global sales announcement.

Sales were up 7% for this French-Japanese alliance car company thanks to a strong performance by Nissan in Japan and Renault in Asia and Africa. With sales of 5.2 million cars between January and June this year, the company took a clear lead ahead of 2nd place Volkswagen Group with its emissions issues. Toyota went to 3rd position (with lower domestic sales) just a small fraction behind the VW Group.
