Renault, Nissan and Mitsubishi Motors are to launch 35 new EV models by 2030 as part of their future roadmap.

The manufacturers, which currently use the common platforms across 60% of their models, announced their cooperation business model 18 months ago to support competitiveness and profitability.

The alliance has now defined a common 2030 roadmap on pure EV and intelligent and connected mobility.

Jean-Dominique Senard, chairman of the Alliance, said: “Among the world’s automotive leaders, the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance is a proven, unique model.

“For 22 years, we have been building on our respective cultures and strengths for our common benefit.

“Today the Alliance is accelerating to lead the mobility revolution and deliver more value to customers, our people, our shareholders and all our stakeholders.

“The three member companies have defined a common roadmap towards 2030, sharing investments in future electrification and connectivity projects.

“These are massive investments that none of the three companies could make alone.

“Together, we are making the difference for a new and global sustainable future: the Alliance becoming carbon neutral by 2050.”

The alliance announced it will invest a future 23 billion euros in the next  five years on electrification, leading to 35 new EV models by 2030.

Ninety per cent of these models will be based on five common EV platforms, covering most markets, in all major regions:

  • CMF-AEV is the base for the new Dacia Spring.
  • KEI-EV (mini vehicle) platform family for ultra-compact EVs.
  • LCV-EV Family platform family for professional customers, as the base for the Renault Kangoo and Nissan Town Star.
  • CMF-EV, will be on the roads in a few weeks as the base for the Nissan Ariya EV crossover and Renault Megane E-Tech Electric. The CMF-EV platform, with its technological innovations and the potential offered by its modularity, is a benchmark platform for a new generation of electric vehicles for the Alliance partners. By 2030, more than 15 models will be based on the CMF-EV platform, with up to 1.5 million cars produced on this platform per year.
  • CMF-BEV, compact electric platform, to be launched in 2024. It provides up to 400km range and will be the base for 250,000 vehicles a year under the Renault, Alpine and Nissan brands. Among the vehicles are the Renault R5 and the new compact EV that will replace the Nissan Micra.
