Alliance 2022 – Targets and Details

Alliance 2022 unit-sales, revenues and synergies

This year, Renault, Nissan and Mitsubishi Motors became a world’s largest automotive organisation by sales volume. In a initial half of 2017, volumes increasing by 7 percent year-on-year to 5.27 million units, while sum sales of electric vehicles reached a sum sum of some-more than 500,000 units.

Total section sales by a member companies are approaching to surpass 14 million vehicles per year by a finish of a plan. Combined financial revenues are foresee to strech $240 billion by a finish of a plan, adult some-more than 30 percent on a $180 billion sum revenues achieved in 2016.

The increasing synergy aim of €10 billion by a finish of a devise follows a 16 percent arise in synergies in 2016 to €5 billion. The doubling of synergies will be achieved partially by contributions from Mitsubishi Motors, privately by deeper localization, corner plant utilization, common car platforms, and an stretched participation in mature and rising markets.

Additional synergies are approaching from light blurb vehicles (LCV), aftersales and technology-sharing in electric vehicles, unconstrained drive, connected cars and new mobility services. This will element synergies from existent converged functions in engineering; production engineering and supply-chain; purchasing and tellurian resources.

Extension of common platforms and powertrains

Alongside a 3 record building blocks, a member companies will extend their use of common common platforms and powertrains.

New developments include:

  • In 2022, some-more than 9 million vehicles will be built on 4 common platforms, adult from 2 million vehicles on dual platforms in 2016
  • By a finish of a plan, a member companies will share 22 engines out of a sum of 31, compared with 14 engines out of a sum sum of 38 in 2016
  • The common height devise – formed on a CMF design – will be extended to a new common EV height with modernized unconstrained expostulate capability and to a new B-segment common height for mid-sized vehicles.
  • Mitsubishi Motors will benefit entrance to a CMF design and implement common powertrains by 2020

The prolongation of a Common Module Family follows a success of a common car design by Renault and Nissan in new years, that has enclosed a use of common platforms and powertrains opposite a widening portfolio of vehicles including a Nissan Rogue, Qashqai and X-Trail, Renault Espace, Kadjar and Megane, as good as Renault Kwid and Datsun redi-GO.

Alliance 2022 record building blocks

The record building blocks will minister synergies by avoiding expansion duplication and providing larger and faster entrance to creation for a member companies.


1. Reinforcing electric car leadership

As a strange colonize and tellurian personality in pristine EV sales, a design stays to be a series one provider of mainstream, mass marketplace and affordable EVs around a world. By 2022, a member companies will significantly boost their product operation to cover all categorical segments in their pivotal markets of Japan, a USA, China and Europe.

The foundation building retard will involve:

  • Common, scalable EV platforms for mixed segments by 2020, with a foresee that 70 percent of EV volumes will be formed on common platforms by 2022
  • A new family of EV engine and batteries to be introduced from 2020, common opposite a member companies
  • 12 new pristine electric vehicles to be launched by 2022
  • More than 600km EV operation reached by 2022, formed on NEDC homologation methodology
