Dacia Bigster Concept unveiled, previews upcoming mid-size SUV

Unveiled as part of parent company Groupe Renault's 'Renaulution' business plan announcement this week, the Bigster Concept measures 4.6 metres long, slotting it into the larger end of the mid-size SUV segment, just 30mm shorter than the long-wheelbase, new-generation Hyundai Tucson.

Dacia aims to sell Europe's cheapest EV from 2021

Renault's low-cost subsidiary brand, Dacia, says it is going to launch "Europe's most affordable all-electric" vehicle in early 2021. Dacia is the same brand that sells the rugged little Duster 4x4, and which has nabbed a claimed 5.8 million sales in Europe since it relaunched in 2004. The company showed the production-ready concept, called Spring Electric, earlier this week. It's a high-riding compact hatchback designed to bring EV tech to a new audience.

Renault could reduce Nissan stake to revive Fiat Chrysler merger - report

Renault and Nissan are reportedly in talks to rebalance their alliance with the aim of restarting Renault's proposed merger with Fiat Chrysler (FCA). Sources have told The Wall Street Journal about the discussions, which centre around plans to reduce Renault's 43.4 per cent shareholding in Nissan. Any reduction in Renault's Nissan stake would require the approval of the French government, which holds a 15 per cent share and supersized voting rights in the French automaker.
