Renault, Nissan and Mitsubishi have announced shared projects, with the aim of accelerating and strengthening cooperation on a new conception of mobility in view of 2030. The Alliance among three primary car and commercial vehicle manufacturers was established about one year and a half ago, in May 2020. Now, the three players have outlines a roadmap on pure-EV and Intelligent & Connected mobility.

Renault, Nissan and Mitsubishi relying on electrification

As for the shared vehicle projects, the Alliance members will enhance usage of common platforms in the coming years from 60 percent today to more than 80 percent of its combined 90 models in 2026. Electrification is key in the scenario outlined by the Alliance today, as 23 billion euro worth additional investments will be carried out in the next five years, leading to 35 new electric vehicle models by 2030. 90 percent of these models will be based on five common EV platforms covering several car and commercial vehicle segments.

Today the Alliance is accelerating to lead the mobility revolution and deliver more value to customers, our people, our shareholders and all our stakeholders. The three member-companies have defined a common roadmap towards 2030, sharing investments in future electrification and connectivity projects. These are massive investments that none of the three companies could make alone. Together, we are making the difference for a new and global sustainable future; the Alliance becoming carbon neutral by 2050

Another primary area of cooperation is the one of battery supply. Here, the Alliance aims to reduce battery costs by 50 percent in 2026 and 65 percent by 2028, thus reaching by the end of the decade a total of 220 GWh battery production capacity for EVs across key production sites in the world. Also, the Alliance seems to be very confident on all-solid-state battery (ASSB) technology, with the aim of achieving mass production of ASSB by 2028.

Public charging and ADAS

The Alliance is working with strategic partners to offer the best proposal to customers for public charging on the road. Mobilize Power Solutions provides to B2B customers a complete end-to-end service including project design, installation, maintenance and management of optimized recharging infrastructure and all related services to meet their business needs. A recent agreement is with Ionity via the Alliance Emobility Service Provider Plug Surfing, which will allow its customers to access at preferential pricing to the Ionity ultra-fast charging network in Europe.

Furthermore, additional efforts will be put on ADAS and autonomous drive, with the target of 10 million vehicles on the road equipped with autonomous driving systems by 2028. Also, the Alliance will launch its first full software defined vehicle by 2025
