Nissan Motors, Mitsubishi Motors, and Renault of France, which have a tie-up relationship, have further strengthened their cooperation to respond to the accelerating electrification of vehicles in the world, and will be about to develop EV = electric vehicles in the next five years. We have decided to invest 3 trillion yen.

Nissan Motors, Mitsubishi Motors, and Renault of France have formed a coalition of three companies to standardize the platform and parts that form the basis of the vehicle.



According to people familiar with the matter, the three companies have decided to further strengthen their cooperation in order to respond to the accelerating electrification of vehicles around the world.



Specifically, over the next five years, we will invest 23 billion euros in total for the development of EV = electric vehicles, etc., and about 3 trillion yen in Japanese yen.



In addition, the "all-solid-state battery," which is currently being developed by Nissan as a next-generation battery that can store more electricity than the mainstream lithium-ion battery, will be shared by the three companies if it is put into practical use. However, we plan to install it in new EVs.



Nissan, Mitsubishi, and Renault have introduced EVs to the market ahead of other companies, but other companies are also strengthening their offensive, such as Tesla in the United States significantly increasing sales, and the focus is on whether new investment can make a comeback. It will be.



The three companies will hold a joint press conference on the 27th of this month to clarify these policies.
