The claim was made by Carlos Ghosn – the alliance’s CEO and chairman. According to his speech, the synergy plan implies the development of new electric vehicle platforms and a significant rise of sales scale.

Renault-Nissan alliance had previously announced their plan to develop a common platform for electric vehicles, but now it seems that Mitsubishi – that was partly acquired by Nissan – would also benefit from the synergy.

By the way, unlike other automakers, Renault, Nissan and Mitsubishi plans do not include hybrids or plug-in hybrids – instead, they claim to concentrate purely on 100% electric cars, meaning 12 new zero-emission models by 2022.
