    The first Renault car, the Renault Voiturette 1CV was soldto a friend of Louis' father after giving him a test ride on 24 December

    1898. The client was so impressed with the way the tiny car ran and how

    it climbed the streets that he bought it.

    The brothers recognised the publicity that could be obtained for their

    vehicles by participation inmotor racing and Renault made itself known

    through achieving instant success in the first city-to-city races held in

    Switzerland resulting in rapid expansion for the company. Both Louis

    and Marcel Renault raced company vehicles, but Marcel was killed in anaccident during the 1903 Paris-Madrid race. Although Louis Renault

    never raced again, his company remained very involved,

    including Ferenc Szisz winning the first Grand Prix motor

    racing event in a Renault AK 90CVin 1906. Louis was to take full

    control of the company as the only remaining brother in 1906 when

    Fernand retired for health reasons.

    The Renault reputation for innovation was fostered from very early on.

    At the time, cars were very much luxury items, and the price of the

    smallest Renaults available being 3000 francs reflected this; an amount it

    would take ten years for the average worker at the time to earn. In 1905

    the company introduced mass-production techniques, and Taylorism in

    1913. As well as cars, Renault manufactured taxis,buses and

    commercial cargo vehicles in the pre-war years, and during World War

    I (191418) branched out into ammunition, military airplanes and

    vehicles such as the revolutionary Renault FT-17tank. The company's

    military designs were so successful that Renault himself was awarded

    the Legion of Honourfor his company's contributions to the war. Thecompany also exported their engines overseas to American auto

    manufacturers for use in such automobiles as the GJG which used a

    Renault 26 hp or 40 hp four-cylinder engine.

    It was eventually decided that the company's state-

    owned status was detrimental to its growth, and Renault

    wasprivatized in 1996. This new freedom allowed thecompany to venture once again into Eastern Europe and

    South America, including a new factory in Brazil and

    upgrades for the infrastructure in Argentina and Turkey.

    Signed on 27 March 1999, the RenaultNissan

    Alliance is the first of its kind involving a Japanese and a

    French company, each with its own distinct corporate

    culture and brand identity, linked through cross-

    shareholding. Renault initially acquires a 36.8% stake at a

    cost of US$3.5 billion inNissan, while Nissan in turn has a

    15 percent stake (non-voting) in Renault. Renault continued

    to operate as a stand-alone company, but with the intent to

    collaborate with its alliance partner to reduce costs in

    developing new products. In the same year Renault bought

    99% of the Romanian company Dacia, thus returning after

    30 years, in which time the Romanians built over 2 million

    cars, which primarily consisted of the Renault 8, 12 and 20.

    Following the sale of the Renault Vehicules

    Industrials truck and bus division to Volvo in 2001, Renault

    retained a minority (but controlling) stake (20%) in the

    Volvo Group. (Volvo passenger cars are now a subsidiary

    of the Zhejiang Geely Holding Group).

    In the twenty-first century, Renault was to foster a

    reputation for distinctive, outlandish design. The second

    generation of the Lagunaand Mgane featured ambitious,

    angular designs which turned out to be successful, with the2000 Laguna being the first European family car to feature

    "keyless" entry and ignition. Less successful were the

    company's more upmarket models. The Avantime, a

    bizarre coup / multi-purpose vehicle, sold very poorly and

    was quickly discontinued while the luxury Vel Satis model

    did not sell as well as hoped. However, the design inspired

    the lines of the second-generation Mgane, the most

    successful car of the maker. As well as its distinctive

    styling, Renault was to become known for its car safety;currently, it's the car manufacturer with the largest number

    of models achieving the maximum 5 star rating

    in EuroNCAP crash tests. The Laguna was the first Renault

    to achieve a 5 star rating; in 2004 the Modus was the first to

    achieve this rating in its category.

    For 2004 Renault reported a 43% rise in net income

    to 3.5 billion and 5.9% operating margin, of which Nissan

    contributed 1,767 million. The Group (Renault, Dacia,

    Renault Samsung Motors) posted a 4.2% increase in

    worldwide sales to a record 2,489,401 vehicles,

    representing a global market share of 4.1%. Renault

    retained its position as the leading brand in Europe with

    1.8 million passenger cars and light commercial vehicles

    sold and market share of 10.8%. In 2005 the Renault

    Nissan Alliance held 9.8% of the worldwide market (5.74%for Nissan and 4.04% for the Renault group) with sales of

    3,597,748 (Nissan) and 2,531,500 (Renault Group), placing

    the alliance fourth after GM, Toyota, and Ford. For the

    calendar year of 2008, its total global sales were 6,090,304,

    a decrease of 1.1% against a global industry market decline

    of 5%, resulting in a 9.4% share, up from 9.1% in

    2007. Renault has regularly topped the French car sales

    charts, fighting off fierce competition

    from Citron and Peugeot.[citation needed] With dropping sales

    4800 jobs were cut in 2008, partly because of poor

    performance of the Laguna.

    NISSAN MOTOR:-

    Nissan Motor Company usually shortened

    to Nissan. It is multinationalautomakerheadquartered in Japan. It was a

    core member of theNissan Group, but has become more independent

    after its restructuring underCarlos Ghosn (CEO).

    It formerly marketed vehicles under the "Datsun" brand

    name and is one of the largest car manufacturers in the world. As

    of 2011, the company's global headquarters is located inNishi-ku,

    Yokohama. In 1999, Nissan entered a two way alliance

    with Renault S.A. of France, which owns 43.4% of Nissan while

    Nissan holds 15% of Renault shares, as of 2008. The current

    market share of Nissan, along with Honda and Toyota, in

    American auto sales represent the largest of the automotive firms

    based in Asia that have been increasingly encroaching on the

    historically dominant US-based "Big Three" consisting ofGeneral

    Motors (GM), Ford andChrysler. In its home market, Nissanbecame the second largest car manufacturer in 2011, surpassing

    Honda with Toyota still very much the dominant first. Along with

    its normal range of models, Nissan also produces a range of

    luxury models branded as Infiniti.

    TheNissan VQ engines, of V6 configuration, have been

    featured among Ward's 10 Best Enginesfor 14 straight years.

    Masujiro Hashimoto founded The Kwaishinsha Motor Car Works in

    1911. In 1914, the company produced its first car, called DAT.

    The new car's name was an acronym of the company's investors' family

    names:

    Kenjiro Den

    Rokuro Aoyama

    Meitaro Takeuchi

    It was renamed to Kwaishinsha Motorcar Co., Ltd. in 1918,

    and again to DAT Motorcar Co. in 1925.[1] DAT Motors built trucks

    in addition to the DAT and Datsun passenger cars. The vast majority

    of its output were trucks, due to an almost non-existent consumermarket for passenger cars at the time. Beginning in 1918, the first

    DAT trucks were produced for the military market. It was the low

    demand of the military market in the 1920s that forced DAT to merge

    in 1926 with Japan's second most successful truck maker, Jitsuyo

    Motors.

    In 1926 the Tokyo-based DAT Motors merged with the Osaka-

    based Jitsuyo Jidosha Co., Ltd. a.k.a. Jitsuyo Motors (established

    1919, as a Kubota subsidiary) to become DAT Automobile

    Manufacturing Co., Ltd. in Osaka until 1932. (Jitsuyo Jidosha began

    producing a three-wheeled vehicle with an enclosed cab called the

    Gorham in 1920, and the following year produced a four-wheeled

    version. From 1923 to 1925, the company produced light cars and

    trucks under the name of Lila.)

    In 1931, DAT came out with a new smaller car, the first

    "Datson", meaning "Son of DAT". Later in 1933 after Nissan took

    control of DAT Motors, the last syllable of Datson was changed to

    "sun", because "son" also means "loss" in Japanese, hence the name

    "Datsun".

    In 1933, the company name wasNipponized to Jidosha-Seizo

    Co., Ltd. and was moved to Yokohama.

    In 1928, Yoshisuke Aikawa founded the holding

    companyNippon Sangyo (Japan Industries or Nippon

    Industries). "The name 'Nissan' originated during the 1930s

    as an abbreviation" used on the Tokyo stock market for

    Nippon Sangyo. This company was the famous Nissan"Zaibatsu" (combine) which included Tobata Casting

    and Hitachi. At this time Nissan controlled foundries and

    auto parts businesses, but Aikawa did not enter automobile

    manufacturing until 1933.

    Nissan eventually grew to include 74 firms, andbecame the fourth-largest combine in Japan during World

    War II.

    In 1930, Aikawa purchased controlling(?) shares in

    DAT Motors, and then in 1933 it merged Tobata Casting's

    automobile parts department with DAT Motors. As Tobata

    Casting was a Nissan company, this was the beginning ofNissan's automobile manufacturing.

    Nissan Motors founded in 1934

    In 1934, Aikawa "separated the expanded automobile

    parts division of Tobata Casting and incorporated it as a

    new subsidiary, which he named Nissan Motor (Nissan)".

    Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. The shareholders of the new

    company however were not enthusiastic about the prospects

    of the automobile in Japan, so Aikawa bought out all theTobata Casting shareholders (using capital from Nippon

    Industries) in June, 1934. At this time Nissan Motors

    effectively became owned byNippon Sangyo and Hitachi.

    Nissan built trucks, airplanes, and engines for the

    Japanese military. The company's main plant was moved to

    China after land there was captured by Japan. The plant

    made machinery for the Japanese war effort until it was

    captured by American and Russian forces. From 1947 to

    1948 the company was called Nissan Heavy Industries

    Corp.

    In early 1950s, Nissan partnered with an established

    European company to gain access to up-to-date automobile

    and engine designs. Nissan chose Austin of the United

    Kingdom, which later became the British Motor

    Corporation by its merger with Morris et al. Nissan began

    license at that time is debated. After the success of

    Nissan, Hino and Isuzu followed to partner

    with Renault and Hillman respectively.

    In 1952 Nissan Motor Company of Japan entered into

    a legal agreement with Austin, for Nissan to assemble 2,000

    Austins from imported partially assembled sets and sell

    them in Japan under the Austin trademark. The agreement

    called for Nissan to make all Austin parts locally within

    three years, a goal Nissan met. Nissan produced and

    marketed Austins for seven years. The agreement also gave

    Nissan rights to use Austin patents, which Nissan used in

    developing its own engines for its Datsun line of cars. In

    1953 British-built Austins were assembled and sold, but by

    1955, the Austin A50 completely built by Nissan and

    featuring a slightly larger body with new 1489 cc engine

    was on the market in Japan. Nissan produced 20,855

    Austins from 19531959.

    Nissan leveraged the Austin patents to further

    develop their own modern engine designs past what the

    Austin's A- and B-family designs offered. The apex of the

    Austin-derived engines was the new design A series

    engine in 1967. Also in 1967 Nissan introduced its new

    highly advanced four cylinder overhead cam (OHC)Nissan

    L engine, which while similar to Mercedes-Benz OHC

    designs was a totally new engine designed by Nissan. This

    engine powered the new Datsun 510, which gained Nissan

    respect in the worldwide sedan market. Then, in 1969Nissan introduced the Datsun 240Z sports car which used a

    six-cylinder variation of the L series engine. The 240Z was

    an immediate sensation and lifted Nissan to world class

    status in the automobile market
