The Renault-Nissan Alliance announced that it will launch 10 models with Autonomous Drive technologies by 2020. This is in line with the Alliance’s commitment to technological innovation and its focus on the twin goals of zero emissions and zero fatalities.
Renault-Nissan is already the global leader in electric vehicles. The Alliance has sold more than 340,000 zero-emission vehicles since 2010.
Renault and Nissan engineers are working together on the development of Autonomous Drive, connectivity and other next-generation technologies for mass-market, mainstream vehicles. By partnering on advanced research and development, Renault and Nissan are able to work more efficiently, with less cost.
The Alliance has an annual research and development budget of about €4.5 billion. It has research centers in Atsugi, Japan; Guyancourt, France; Farmington Hills, Mich.; Sunnyvale, Calif.; and in India, Brazil, Romania, Turkey and China, among other locations.
In January, the Alliance announced the introduction of a common Connected Vehicles and Mobility Services team that will ensure the swift implementation of connectivity applications that customers will experience across all Alliance brands. The team will also be introducing new mobility services on behalf of the Alliance.
