Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi clearly forces electromobility-renault-nissan-mitsubishi

The Alliance Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi increases the pace in terms of electric cars and networked mobility. For this purpose, the automotive group now presented a common timetable by 2030. In the next five years, 23 billion euros will flow into the electrical offensive of the partners. The 2030 roadmap focuses on purely electric cars. One goal is to increase the use of shared platforms to 80 percent in 2026. With 35 new electric cars in 2030, the Alliance wants to offer the world’s largest supply of electric cars based on five electric car platforms.

One and a half years after the announcement of your new business model for the strengthening of the competitiveness and profitability of the partners, Allianz is now on a solid foundation, benefit from an efficient operational governance organization and more intensive and flexible cooperation, such as a current message. In the continuation of the 2020 LEADER FOLLOWER schema, selected technologies will be developed by a leading team with the support of the followers, so that each member of Allianz has access to all key technologies. The investments required for the joint roadmap are to be shared for the benefit of the three member companies and their customers.

“Among the world’s leading car manufacturers, the Alliance Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi is a proven and unique model. For 22 years we build on our respective cultures and strengths for common use. Today, the Alliance increases their pace to be in the front of the Mobility Revolution at the beginning and to offer customers, our employees, our shareholders and all our stakeholders more value. The three member companies have set a joint timetable by 2030, in which they invest together in future electrification and connectivity projects. These are massive investments that could not do any of the three companies alone. Together we make the difference for a new, global and sustainable future: the alliance is climate-neutral up to 2050.”- Jean-Dominique Senard, Chairman of the Alliance Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi

According to its own statement, the three companies have developed a method of “intelligent differentiation” that specifies the desired level of commonality for each vehicle and take several parameters for a possible merger, z. B. Platforms, production sites, drive strands or vehicle segments. Based on a common platform for the C and D segment, five models (Nissan Qashqai and X-Trail, Mitsubishi Outlander, Renault Austral and a future seven-seat SUV) are available.

Allianz partners want to increase the use of common platforms in the coming years from today 60 percent to more than 80 percent of their total 90 models in 2026. In this context, Mitsubishi Motors wants to strengthen its presence in Europe with two new models, including the New Asx based on the bestsellers of Renault.

Five common electro-car platforms

Renault, Nissan and Mitsubishi see themselves as a pioneer on the market for electric vehicles and have already invested more than ten billion euros in the electrification. In the main markets (Europe, Japan, USA, China), parts, motors and batteries for ten electric car models are manufactured in 15 plants of allianz today. So far, more than one million electric cars were sold and 30 billion e-kilometers covered as the Alliance announced.

On the basis of this know-how, the automaker wants to invest another 23 billion euros in the electrification in the coming five years to develop new e-car models by 2030. 90 percent of these models are to be based on five common EV platforms that most markets should cover in all major regions:

  • CMF-AEV as the basis for Dacia Spring
  • Kei-eV (mini-vehicle) platform family for ultra-compact electric cars
  • LCV-EV Family as the basis for the Renault Kangoo and the Nissan Townstar
  • CMF-eV as a global, flexible EV platform – including the basis for the Nissan Ariya eV Crossover and the new Renault Megane E-Tech Electric. By 2030, more than 15 models are to be based on the CMF-EV platform, with up to 1.5 million vehicles produced per year on this platform.
  • CMF-Bev as a new compact electric car platform with start 2024. It should form the basis for 250 per year.000 vehicles per year of the Brands Renault, Alpine and Nissan. The vehicles include the future Renault R5 and the new compact electric car that will replace the Nissan Micra. The new model designed by Nissan and developed by Renault is to be manufactured in Renault Electricity: the industrial center for electric vehicles in northern France.

Common battery strategy with a production capacity of 220 GWh

A central pillar of the common electrostrategy is also the new, shared battery strategy of the Alliance. Among other things, the selection of a common battery supplier for Renault and Nissan counts in the core markets. The aim is to reduce the battery costs by 2026 by 50 percent and by 65 percent by 2028. Thus, the Alliance wants to have a total of 220 gWh battery production capacity worldwide through 2030 to the most important production sites worldwide.

In addition, a focus is on the development of a common solids battery technology. Nissan is intended to introduce the innovations in this area, which will benefit all members of the Alliance. The goal is a twice as high energy density as current lithium-ion batteries. The charging time should be shortened to one third. The new battery technology should be produced in series until mid-2028 and equal to combustion vehicles will be achieved by reducing the cost to $ 65 per kWh.

In the battery management system, the Alliance has decided to control their hardware and software 100 percent themselves. Thus, the partners want to benefit from valuable prediction data that enables the monitoring of the condition of the battery and the improvement of the technology.

In the public shop of electric cars, the alliance works with strategic partners. MOBILIZE POWER SOLUTION offers B2B customers a complete end-to-end service that includes project planning, installation, maintenance, and management of an optimized charging infrastructure and all related services.

A recently completed agreement with ionity via the Alliance Emobility Service Provider Plug Surfing is intended to enable customers access to the ultrafast ionity charging network in Europe at preferential prices. With more than ten years of experience in the electromobility business, the Alliance partners also have high competence in terms of battery recycling and especially with Second-Life battery applications. This area should also continue to grow in the future.

25 million crosslinked vehicles until 2026

Intelligent and networked mobility sees alliance as crucial areas for more common innovations. With 20 years of experience in Adas (advanced driver assistance systems) and autonomous driving, the manufacturer wants to improve the security, comfort and driving pleasure of vehicles by providing innovation in the field of intelligent vehicle and driver assistance technologies – an example of this is the propilot System of Nissan.

Thanks to joint platforms and electronics, partners plan to equip more than ten million vehicles to 45 allianz models with autonomous driving systems by 2026. Already today 3 million vehicles are connected to the Alliance Cloud and swap permanent data. By 2026, more than five million Alliance cloud systems are expected to be delivered per year, so that a total of 25 million networked vehicles should be on the roads.

Under the leadership of Renault, the Alliance develops a common centralized electrical and electronic architecture that combines electronics hardware and software applications.

By 2025, the Alliance wants to launch its first fully software-defined vehicle. With this vehicle, Allianz wants to improve the over-the-air performance of your vehicles throughout your life cycle. This also means added value for the customers – by integrating your vehicle into your digital ecosystem. In addition, software-defined vehicles will be able to communicate with networked objects, users and infrastructure, which opens the company of Allianz new business areas.

  1. The former pioneers in the field of BEVs have been restored for years on their first plants and invests nothing in the further development. This applies to the Leaf and the Zoe as well as to the Outlander PHEV. Now you will be overtaken right and left of everyone and the outlander z.B. Was still the best selling Phev two years ago. Today he no longer appears among the first 20 phev in the approvals. Likewise the leaf with Rapiggate and lame Chademo-loader. And the Zoe also sells only the price of unparalley BEV beginners.

    If she’s not woken up too late. The Megane is for what he offers much too expensive. Also the Arriya. Let’s see what a cucumber Mitsubishi puts on the wheels.
