Nissan and Mitsubishi expand collaboration

  • 06-Nov-2013 02:05 EST

From new vehicles to new technologies and shared production capacity, Mitsubishi Motors Corp. and the Renault-Nissan Alliance will greatly broaden their current level of collaboration, the two Japanese automakers announced Nov. 5. Among the products planned is a new small car with an electric version to be sold globally; it will be based on a "kei car" platform co-developed by the two companies in a two-year-old joint venture called NMKV. But the first products to come out of the expanded collaboration will be two Mitsubishi sedan models based on Renault platforms. One will be a D-segment model for the U.S. and Canada to be built at the Renault-Samsung plant in Busan, South Korea. The other will be a C-segment offering for global sale.
