Renault-Nissan Alliance and Mitsubishi announce technology cooperation

The Renault-Nissan Alliance and Mitsubishi have announced several new joint projects covering shared products, technologies and manufacturing capacity among the automakers.
It is expected that the existing NMKV joint-venture company will be extended to co-develop a new small car including a specific electric version that can be sold on a global basis. The basis for this product will be from a jointly developed ‘Kei car’ platform of the type popular in the Japanese domestic market. Further details of all products, markets and manufacturing will be announced separately.
The Renault-Nissan Alliance and Mitsubishi have also confirmed their intention to share technologies and product assets related to electric vehicles and latest-generation platforms.
Two new sedan models are expected to launch under the Mitsubishi brand, based on vehicles from the Renault portfolio, while secondary and additional studies around other projects will then be considered.
The first sedan, to compete in the full-size D-segment markets of the United States and Canada, would be manufactured at the Renault-Samsung plant in Busan, South Korea. Meanwhile, the second sedan model would compete in the global C-segment. The manufacturing location for this product is under discussion.
Osamu Masuko, president of Mitsubishi, commented: “As a result of the development of collaborative projects with Nissan up to now, Mitsubishi is pleased to work again with Nissan and now Renault towards achieving further collaborations. The new opportunities could be described as evidence that the ongoing collaborative projects between Mitsubishi and Nissan have brought positive results, and Mitsubishi hopes that any new collaborative projects with the Renault-Nissan Alliance would bring us further merits.”
Nissan and Mitsubishi have an existing joint-venture company called NMKV, which was established in June 2011 for the purpose of co-developing a range of Kei cars for both brands. The first of these products – the Nissan Dayz and Mitsubishi eK wagon – went on sale in Japan this year. Both products are manufactured at the Mitsubishi Mizushima plant in Japan.
