    How commingled are they? Will Renault now have access to Tesla's patents?

    Beat me to it: Daimler, Renault Team Up On Electric Car Tech


    My only concern here is that with the three biggest mainstream EV players getting under the same umbrella, it's far easier for some board-level change of strategy to kill the whole thing off...

    Well the EV "cat" is out of the bag - with GM, Fiat, Ford etc all coming out with EVs. Besides, Nissan-Renault has essentially bet the farm on EV. They are spending billions in these hard times. I just don't see a 3% Daimler share changing that.

    Infact, I'm not sure what Nissan-Renault is getting out of this deal. May be some access to dealerships for Infinity ? Daimler ofcource needs Nissan-Renault's small cars (atleast for CAFE etc) and batteries.
