This electric car will be developed in similar lines as the Kei car platform which has made its mark in Japanese markets.

The alliance between Renault-Nissan Alliance and Mitsubishi Motors Corporation will entail sharing of latest generation platforms besides technologies where electric vehicles are concerned as they come together to be the first to introduce zero emission products into markets.

Two new sedans in the D and C Segment are expected to be launched under this alliance, one of which will be produced at the Renault Samsung plant in Busan, South Korea while production location of the other is still under contemplation.

President and CEO of the Renault-Nissan Alliance, Carlos Ghosn said: “Nissan and Mitsubishi Motors have jointly benefited from several collaborations in the past, most recently the successful joint-venture on Kei cars in Japan. I welcome the direction being taken towards this broader cooperation, creating new opportunities for Renault in addition to further leveraging the productive relationship between Nissan and Mitsubishi Motors.”

Osamu Masuko, President of Mitsubishi Motors Corporation commented: “As a result of the development of collaborative projects with Nissan Motor up to now, Mitsubishi Motors is pleased to work again with Nissan and now Renault towards achieving further collaborations. The new opportunities could be described as evidence that the ongoing collaborative projects between Mitsubishi Motors and Nissan have brought positive results, and Mitsubishi Motors hopes that any new collaborative projects with the Renault-Nissan Alliance would bring us further merits.”
