According to a report from the Financial Times Germany, Daimler and Renault-Nissan are looking for a plant site in North America. And that plant will produce engines made and designed by the two companies.
Daimler added 2.4 billion dollars in the Tuscaloosa plant, creating 1,400 new jobs. Meanwhile, Infiniti (Nissan) will also build a new plant in Tennessee in 2012. By now, they are producing the QX SUV in Mississippi, which goes to prove that the two car companies are investing heavily on their US plants, thus it would be no surprise if the engine project will be made in any of these facilities.
As of now though, Daimler has not confirmed on the matter yet.
