After recording strong figures between April and November 2009, small car sales are expected to continue to grow next year, on account of numerous planned launches in 2010. However, while the robust Indian car market will benefit the finished vehicle logistics players, a modal shift toward rail will reduce the share of road in the Indian finished vehicle logistics market over the next few years.

Renault: cheap and cheerful

The Logan is the first vehicle in Renault's [RNO.PA] X90 series, which is at the heart of its strategy to target emerging markets. Renault's concept of producing budget vehicles under a different brand identity should prove successful in those regions, where affordability is key.

Renault/Nissan: defensive relations

The automakers will also increase their cross-shareholdings, in a move designed to protect both companies from a hostile takeover. The merits of such defensive strategies in general are debatable, but this particular deal just seems bizarre.
