Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance reveals new global strategy

"To achieve this target, on one side Renault, Nissan and Mitsubishi will accelerate collaboration on common platforms, powertrains and next-generation electric, autonomous and connected technologies". We intend to deliver on growing synergies, with three autonomous companies cooperating with the efficiency of one.

The combined global sales of Renault, Nissan Motor and Mitsubishi Motors will reach a total of 14 million units by 2022, according to a midterm business plan unveiled on Friday.

As part of its Alliance 2022 plan, the brands will launch 12 new electric cars, 40 autonomous-capable cars and "robo-vehicles" for ride-hailing services.

Renault-Nissan expects to sell 14 million vehicles per year in 2022, an increase of some 40 % in six years, announced Friday, September 15, its CEO, Carlos Ghosn, introducing strategic plan of alliance of automobile at this time. Compared to the other goals in the "Alliance 2022" strategy, deploying a fully autonomous auto by 2022, one without a human driver being necessary, seems a bit overly ambitious.

With the addition of Mitsubishi, the Renault Nissan Alliance is now at the same scale as the three traditional global industry leaders: General Motors, Toyota, and Volkswagen Group, each of which builds roughly 10 million cars a year.

The Renault Zoe, a hatchback one size smaller launched in 2012 by its French alliance partner, is the best-selling electric vehicle in Europe-though its uses largely separate underpinnings than the Leaf.

The increased synergy target of 10 billion euros by 2022 follows a 16 per cent rise in synergies in 2016 to 5 billion euros.

The common platform strategy - based on the Common Module Family (CMF) architecture - will be extended to a new common EV platform with advanced autonomous drive capability and to a new B-segment common platform for mid-sized vehicles.

"We are assuming that most of the mature markets will be stable", he said about the United States, Europe and Japan.

Moreover, it will roll out 12 new pure electric vehicles by 2022 with 30 per cent decrease in battery cost from 2016 to 2022. They will be underpinned by common electric vehicle platforms and share components even though they will be introduced in multiple segments.
