Renault, Nissan, and Mitsubishi will launch 35 new EV models by 2030, will invest 23 billion eurosRenault, Nissan, and Mitsubishi, the members of one of the world’s leading automotive alliances, today announced common projects and actions to accelerate and to shape their shared future towards 2030, focusing on the mobility value chain.

The Alliance has defined a common 2030 roadmap on pure-EV and Intelligent & Connected mobility, sharing investments for the benefits of its three-member companies and their customers. The Alliance members will enhance the usage of common platforms in the coming years from 60% today to more than 80% of its combined 90 models in 2026. As part of this, Mitsubishi Motors will reinforce its presence in Europe with two new models, among them the New ASX based on Renault's best-sellers.

Renault, Nissan and Mitsubishi have pioneered the EV market, with more than 10 B€ already invested in the field of electrification. In the main markets (Europe, Japan, the US, China) 15 Alliance plants already produce parts, motors, batteries for 10 EV models on the streets, with more than 1 million EV cars sold so far and 30 billion e-kilometers driven. Building on this unique expertise, the Alliance is accelerating with a total 23 B€ more investment in the next five years on electrification, leading to 35 new EV models by 2030.

90% of these models will be based on five common EV platforms, covering most markets, in all major regions: The brands have also selected a common battery supplier for Renault and Nissan in core markets. Working with common partners will achieve real scale and affordability, enabling the reduction of battery costs by 50% in 2026 and 65% by 2028. With this approach, by 2030, the Alliance will have a total of 220 GWh battery production capacity for EVs across key production sites in the world.

Beyond that, the Alliance shares a common vision for all-solid-state battery technology (ASSB). Based on its deep expertise and unique experience as a pioneer in battery technology, Nissan will lead innovations in this area that will benefit all Alliance members. ASSB will have double the energy density versus current liquid lithium-ion batteries. Charging time will also be greatly reduced to one-third, enabling customers to make longer trips with increased, convenience, confidence and enjoyment. The aim is to mass produce ASSB by mid-2028, and in the future beyond that to realize cost parity with ICE vehicles by bringing costs down further to 65$ per kWh, accelerating the global shift to EVs.

Unlike others in the industry, the Alliance has chosen to control 100% of its hardware and software, benefiting from very valuable predictive data, allowing for monitoring the state of health of the battery and improving technology. The Alliance is also working with strategic partners to offer the best proposal to customers for public charging on the road. A recent agreement is with Ionity via the Alliance Emobility Service Provider Plug Surfing, which will allow its customers to access at preferential pricing to the Ionity ultra-fast charging network in Europe.

With 20 years of experience in ADAS (advanced driver-assistance systems) and autonomous drive, the Alliance keeps improving real-world driving safety, convenience, and enjoyment by delivering innovations in intelligent vehicle and driver assistance technologies, with an example being Nissan’s award-winning ProPILOT system. With shared platforms and electronics, by 2026 Alliance members expect to have more than 10 million vehicles on the road across 45 Alliance models equipped with autonomous driving systems.

Under Renault's leadership, the Alliance is developing a common centralized electrical and electronic architecture converging electronics hardware and software applications to offer maximum benefits and an optimal level of performance. The Alliance will launch its first full software defined vehicle by 2025. Alliance best-in-class digital experience will be the gateway to an unprecedented amount of data, paving the way to the automotive industry’s next frontier.
