MAUBEUGE, France (Reuters) – France’s Renault <RENA.PA> said it will build new Nissan and Mitsubishi vans at its domestic plants, raising investment in the country as it explores closer integration of the three-way carmaking alliance with government backing.

Renault will build a new Nissan <7201.T> NV250 delivery van at its factory in Maubeuge, northern France, on an architecture shared with its own Kangoo model, which includes an electric version, Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi said on Thursday.

A larger Mitsubishi <7211.T> model will also be produced in Sandouville alongside Renault’s Trafic van, the alliance said in a statement. The announcement raises Renault’s investment in France this year to 1.4 million euros (1.2 million pounds), it added.
