Renault and Nissan aim to breathe new life into their alliance.

On Wednesday (May 27) they set out a new model for the partnership, which also includes smaller Mitsubishi Motors.

All talk of a merger is gone.

Instead the plan will see each take the lead in defined regions and product sectors.

Nissan will be to the fore in Japan, China and North America.

Renault takes the lead in Europe, Russia, South America and North Africa; Mitsubishi in Southeast Asia and Oceania.

It’s hoped the plan will generate major cost savings.

The trio aim to cut investment per new model by up to 40%.

Executives said they would now be more focused on efficiency than sales volumes.

Their range of vehicles is expected to shrink by a fifth by 2025.

Renault Chairman Jean-Dominique Senard said the plan would bring savings of as much as 20% in some areas.

The moves come as global automakers battle a worldwide slump in sales.

Renault-Nissan ties have also been battered by the fallout from the ousting of former boss Carlos Ghosn.

Their alliance once had the lofty goal of becoming the world’s biggest carmaker.

Right now, the focus is on survival.

From Top To Tail, Witch Hazel Is Nature's Gift To Skin Care

Ten years ago, toners were notorious for being too harsh on the skin. So much so, in fact, that dermatologists often discouraged their use. But according to Allure, toners, essences, and face mists now contain gentler ingredients that aren't so rough on the complexion. Witch hazel is a botanical extract derived from a flowering plant found in North America and Japan. It has a number of skin benefits including being soothing, acting as an anti-inflammatory, and having antioxidant properties.
