Nissan, Suzuki expanding business co operation to provide cars to each other

Email   small font medium font large font


TOKYO (AP) _ Nissan will supply pickup trucks for Suzuki to sell in North America in an expansion of the Japanese automakers' business co-operation, both sides said Friday.

Nissan Motor Co. and Suzuki Motor Corp. already have a partnership, in which Suzuki provides Nissan mini-cars, mainly for the Japanese market, to be sold under the Nissan brand.

Under the latest deal, Suzuki will supply small cars for Nissan to sell in Europe, the companies said. Nissan will also provide vehicles for Suzuki to sell under the Suzuki brand, they said.

Nissan does not make its own mini-vehicles, which have engines of up to 0.66 litres and get tax breaks in Japan. Minicar sales have been booming lately in Japan while the overall auto market here has remained flat.
