    A plug-in hybrid vehicle will join Nissan Motor Co. Ltd.’s lineup of electric-drive vehicles by 2015, part of the automaker’s drive to become – along with its French partner Renault SA – the world’s leading provider of advanced-technology vehicles. The new plug-in will be part of a broader slate that will include a replacement in the 2013-2014 timeframe for the discontinued Altima Hybrid and, as Nissan has previously announced, three more all-electric vehicles to join the Leaf EV hatchback the company launched almost 11 months ago.

    Evan they say "automaker’s drive to become – along with its French partner Renault SA – the world’s leading provider of advanced-technology vehicles"

    They have a long way to go to become – the world’s leading provider of advanced-technology vehicles"

    They are saying they (Nissan and Renault) want to BECOME the leading provider(s). They are not claiming that Renault IS the leading provider.

    It's been ~25 years since Renault as a distinct brand left the US market.
    It had been connected with AMC and Chrysler.

    Although we hear next to nothing about Renault in the US, in the
    meantime Renault seems to have been doing good -- and apparently
    profitable -- things elsewhere on the globe. In the Renault-Nissan
    "alliance" which goes back to 1999, Renault is considered the "parent"
    with `44% stake in Nissan, and not the other way around as might be
    assumed. Diamler also has a small, ~3%, interest in Renault-Nissan.

    FWIW, the Nissan Versa is built on the Renault Clio platform…
    as apparently are the Fiat Punto and Citroen c4 as well.

    You can Google yourself to death on Renault, Nissan, et al. :p
