PARIS -- Renault and Daimler are in talks to jointly develop at least one large van, sources said, in a move that could replace Renault's joint venture for vans with Opel/Vauxhall.
Renault and Daimler could team up in some capacity to work on the next generation of Renault Master vans, which are built at Renault's Batilly plant in northeastern France, two people with knowledge of the discussions told Reuters. They said that talks may yet lead nowhere and have not yet concluded.
Representatives of both Renault and Daimler declined to comment.
The Renault Master built in Batilly is rebadged by Opel/Vauxall as the Movano.
An Opel spokesman on Tuesday said the Movano will migrate to Stellantis vehicle architecture. The move follows the merger last month of Opel parent PSA Group with Fiat Chrysler Automobiles to create Stellantis.
