Renault-Nissan Alliance and Daimler AG have announced recently that they will join forces to develop midsize pickup truck for Mercedes-Benz.
The primary target markets for the truck are South Africa, Europe, Australia and Latin America.
The Mercedes-Benz pickup will share some of the architecture with the all-new Nissan NP300 but it will be engineered and designed by Daimler to meet the specific needs of its customers.
The vehicle will have all of Mercedes-Benz’s distinctive characteristics and features.
The pickup will feature a double cab and will be targeted both at personal-use and commercial customers.
Nissan and Renault are already developing a 1-ton pickup truck for Renault which will also share some common architecture with the Nissan NP300. The truck, which will have a distinctive Renault design, is Renault’s first 1-ton pickup truck.
