Nissan Motor Co. could find itself chained to a much bigger gorilla as Renault SA and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV proceed with a plan to forge closer ties. The Japanese carmaker doesn’t like it but may not have much of a choice.

Fiat Chrysler announced a merger plan Monday with Renault, Nissan’s partner of two decades, that could create the world’s third-biggest automaker. While the pair isn’t seeking a merger with Nissan for now, they plan to eventually invite Nissan and Mitsubishi Motors Corp., Renault’s existing global alliance partners, to join forces, sources said.
