The Renault-Nissan Alliance already has a strong footing in the United States by offering models from Nissan, Infiniti, and Mitsubishi.

However, don’t expect Renault-branded vehicles to join the American range anytime soon, according to a new interview with the automaker’s CEO Carlos Ghosn.

“No, I'm not thinking about that. There is no opportunity for it in this midterm plan,” Ghosn said about launching Renault in the U.S. in a discussion with Automotive News. “Going to the U.S. and selling a few cars is easy. You need to have a real strategy of products and marketing. The U.S. is a very competitive market.”

Instead, Ghosn will focus on growing in Asia with a goal of eventually selling 14 million vehicles a year worldwide by the end of the 2022 fiscal year. “Most of it will come from China,” Ghosn told Automotive News. “As you know, Nissan is deploying its product strategy in China and Renault is starting in China and Mitsubishi is in full growth in China.”
