TOKYO, April 26 Nissan Motor Co Ltd
plans to build its next-generation Micra compact car for the
European market at one of its French alliance partner Renault
SA's plants in Europe from 2016, the Japanese
automaker said on Friday.
The vehicle will be sold into Europe's left-hand drive
markets, Nissan said in a statement.
Nissan, Japan's second biggest carmaker, is 43.4 percent
owned by Renault, and Carlos Ghosn heads both automakers.
Nissan already plans to move production of a mid-sized van
from Spain to Renault's Sandouville plant in France, sources
have told Reuters, helping the French carmaker keep a pledge to
raise domestic output in return for union concessions.
