Alliance 2030: the electric strategy of Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi

2021 Nissan Qashqai

Alliance 2030: this is the name of the strategic plan presented recently by Renault Group, Nissan Motor Co. Ltd. and Mitsubishi Motors Corporation. This map should enable these three brands to build a common future together. A clear electric future based on the mobility value chain.

The Alliance will therefore invest heavily in electric vehicles and connected technologies, to the benefit of the three brands. To do so, it will continue its Leader-Follower logic defined in 2020 and which is at the heart of the business model. concept? Each technology is developed by the lead team with the support of the follower team. This allows every member of the Alliance to access all the necessary technologies.

Alliance 2030: five common platforms

This Alliance 2030 roadmap should strengthen cooperation. The use of co-branded systems should increase from 60% today to more than 80% in 2026, for 90 brands in total. For example, the common C- and D-segment platform will serve five models from the three Alliance brands (Nissan Qashqai and X-Trail, Mitsubishi Outlander, Renault Austral and the upcoming 7-seater SUV).

For vehicle electrification, the Union will invest 23 billion euros over the next five years to deliver 35 new electric models by 2030. Of which 90% will be based on five common platforms.

Reduce battery costs

To be competitive in batteries, the Alliance relies on common suppliers for three brands in major markets. The goal: to reach economies of scale and ultimately reduce the cost of batteries by 50% in 2026 and 65% in 2028. The consortium aims to have a total battery production capacity of 220 GWh worldwide by 2030.

Alliance 2030 is also based on ASSB (All Solid-State Battery) solid-state battery technology. This offers a higher energy density than current lithium-ion batteries, and therefore greater autonomy for vehicles. The charging time should also be divided by three, which will facilitate the use of electric vehicles.
