PARIS -- The automaking alliance of Renault, Nissan Motor and Mitsubishi Motors will re-examine its sales target of 14 million cars worldwide by 2022, Renault Chairman Jean-Dominique Senard said, indicating a retreat from former chief Carlos Ghosn's hard-driving pursuit of scale.

"In the coming months, we will be redefining the objective depending on confirmed elements," Senard said in a joint interview with Nikkei and French newspaper Le Figaro.
