Renault, Nissan & Mitsubishi want to triple investment in e-cars-investment

Renault and his alliance partners Nissan and Mitsubishi are expected to announce a $ 23 billion plan for the development of electric vehicles by 2030, which includes more than 30 new models. This reports Reuters, which in turn should have the information of two persons who are familiar with the future plans of the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance.

For Thursday, the three manufacturers will expect a deepening of previous cooperation. Rumor has it that the Franco-Japanese alliance plans to invest more than 20 billion euros in the development of electric vehicles over the next five years. By 2030, the Alliance is to develop more than 30 new electric vehicles based on five common platforms. If you hit this way, you would again deposit ten billion euros on the previous plans for electrification.

The Plan Alliance to 2030 aims to show enhanced cooperation between the car manufacturers and to highlight a joint vision for electrification and networked mobility “, such as one of the source. The five joint platforms should cover 90 percent of electric vehicles that companies want to develop and bring to the market by 2030. Time hole would fit well as Renault and Nissan are known to be known to the fully electric future. With Mitsubishi you are still a little quieter.

So far, the three-way alliance has developed and partially deployed four joint EV platforms. One of them, called CMF-eV, forms the basis for vehicles such as the battery electric small car Renault Megane E-Tech and the coming Nissan Ariya. Another platform supports affordable small cars like the Dacia Spring and similar models of Nissan and his Chinese market partner Dongfeng. The other two are platforms for small cars, called “Kei Cars”, and light commercial vehicles. Renault also prevents the development of a fifth platform for small strometers, which can be used from 2025.

Nissan has already decided to use this platform with the designation CMFB-eV and other standardized components for the electrification of the small car Nissan Micra, while Renault is expected to develop a similar electric car on the same platform, so the sources. The Micra EV is expected to launch in the mid-2020s. Renault plans the market launch of the fully electric small car Renault 5 to 2024 and has announced to build another small car, probably a SUV, which is inspired by the classic Renault 4L.

You can see these plans that the manufacturers deliberately sit on compact e-cars to bring them as affordable as far as possible. It is expected that the three companies will use shared batteries and other key components. The Allianz plans to invest together in capacities to produce a total of 220 gigawatt hours in France, United Kingdom, China and Japan to 2030 battery capacity. The standardization and sharing of batteries awaits alliance halving the cost of battery production.

  1. Then finally the Megane Electric finally brings to the street. It has been known for a year that there is still nothing to configure for test driving, which also has a price tag. Others are long ago selling and vehicles buzzing on one

  2. 30 new models in the next 8 years. I’ll log in here a question mark, whether (almost) all car makers do not go with their types of variety full of the wrong way. Should not be more sensible on improving the quality of its offer? Who is not found at ‘only’ 20 models, goes VMTL. anyway for competition.

  3. Mitsubishi had had a good E-small car for the city with the Miev. Now there is only one PHEV in SUV size, which is clearly ruled out for my observation.The E-Zug has left and Mitsubishi did not jump in time.
    In Germany, the brand will probably only stay in a niche and later disappear.
