The alliance between the French carmaker Renault and its Japanese partner Nissan Motor is “solid, robust, everything but dead,” the chairman of Renault, Jean-Philippe Senard, told Belgian newspaper L’Echo. Renault shares hit six-year lows on Monday as investors worried the French group’s 20-year cost-sharing alliance with Nissan was headed for a break-up without Carlos Ghosn to hold it together.
