DaimlerChrysler acquired a 34 per cent equity stake during 2000 in Mitsubishi Motors Corp. (MSBHY) of Japan for €2.10 billion through a capital increase. The new alliance created  the world’s third-largest auto manufacturer, a ranking formerly occupied by leading Japanese car and truck-maker Toyota Motor Corp. (TM). The alliance covers the design, development, production and distribution of passenger cars and light commercial vehicles. The agreement will not include cooperation on medium- and heavy-duty vehicles.

It embarked on a major restructuring of its ailing Chrysler Group and Freightliner LLC commercial truck unit during 2000-2001. The Freightliner unit lost nearly $1.20 billion in 200`, a complete reversal from a $900.0 million gain in 2000. Massive reorganization is under way at the unit.
