The Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance is moving forward with ambitious plans for the future, including joint activities in multiple regions and a focus on electric vehicle technology.
The Alliance has revealed more information about their partnership and future plans. The next 15 years will see the alliance partners engage in joint activities in Latin America, India, and Europe, with the potential use of a shared 800-volt architecture in Europe.
Nissan has confirmed its intention to take a stake of up to 15% in Ampere, Renault Group’s future independent electric vehicle division. Mitsubishi is also considering a stake in Ampere, although it is not yet clear how much of a stake the carmaker wants to take.
In addition to their plans in Europe, Nissan and Renault Group will also work together on projects in Latin America and India, including in the field of electric vehicles. Both companies will continue to use common technologies for their European cars, with the potential use of a shared 800-volt architecture to ensure a fast charging time.
Starting in 2026, Renault will build a Nissan B-segment electric model at ElectriCity in northern France. This model, based on the CMF-BEV platform, will succeed the Micra and will share drive technology with the upcoming Renault 5 Electric.
The Renault Group and Nissan also plan to select joint recycling partners for their end-of-life batteries and production waste, and are considering jointly setting up a charging infrastructure in Europe at their dealerships. Mitsubishi has not been mentioned in these eMobility plans, although the Renault-based Mitsubishi ASX is mentioned.
