Renault-Nissan to open Calif. research office

  • 21-Jun-2011 08:25 EDT

In announcing a new research office to open in California later this year, the Renault-Nissan Alliance touted its location directly across from Google's campus. "Minutes from leading hardware and software companies, the offices in Mountain View will allow one of the world’s largest automotive groups to capitalize on the region’s world-class engineering talent and stay ahead of trends that are reshaping the way people interact with their cars," the company said in a press release. Small teams will initially work on vehicle IT development, advanced engineering research, and technology recruitment. While Nissan's focus will be on IT research, including graphical user interface displays, Renault's will be on "electric vehicles and their supplier and infrastructure ecosystem."
