Tomorrow in Paris, the man that still leads the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance, Carlos Ghosn, will unveil the broad strategic plan for the coming years. Ghosn already revealed that the most important part of this new strategy will be about integration and synergy.

Synergy not only helps to reduce costs, it also allows better use of resources in developing disruptive technologies that can be shared among the partners. By sharing a platform and other components, the Alliance can finally make electric cars that are really affordable.

While Renault and Nissan are already getting some benefits from a mild synergistic approach with the production of the Renault Zoe, Renault Clio and Nissan Micra at the same Flins Renault factory in France, the same isn’t true for Mitsubishi.

Ghosn recognizes a problem in Mitsubishi being present in Asia but without good cars to offer, while Renault has desirable cars but is absent from many important markets. To solve this problem Nissan and Mitsubishi will probably rebadge some of Renault cars and sell them abroad.


Anyways, tomorrow Carlos Ghosn will let us know what’s coming, nevertheless, each carmaker that belongs to the Alliance is expected to reveal its unique strategy next month. Soon we’ll see if the Alliance is serious about regaining the electric mobility leadership, or it’ll let Tesla to lead alone. I’m confident that Ghosn still believes that the future of mobility is zero emission and zero fatality.


What do you think? Will the Alliance take advantage of the fact that most legacy automakers are busy showing us vaporware to leapfrog them once again and for good?

What does it mean “… let Tesla lead alone”? Why BYD is so easily forgotten? Or Tesla also sells so many ebuses and etrucks?

I think that BYD has the heart, but not the brain to make good electric cars.

Their electric cars are extremely inefficient.

Dmitry Pelegov

Do you really think that comparison of modern car (2017) with one of the first all-electric car (2013) is correct? Maybe we should add Detroit Electric or Milburn Electric?

The BYD e6 isn’t a past model since is still on sale and continues extremely inefficient. Even a 2010 Nissan Leaf is better…

Dmitry Pelegov

But anyway thank you for information – I will pay more attention to effectiveness of BYD models.

And also I don’t like using MPGe and kWh for 100 miles/km. First one is in fact abusive for EV and second one is inconvenient. The only correct measure is (as for me) miles or kilometers per 1 kWh. And the Hyundai Ionic boast of the highest efficiency overall so that comparison is incorrect. And in order to make our world better one has to increase sales, the only real measure of effectiveness. And BYD had made much more than Hyundai and even more than Tesla. But Tesla can boast of wider popularization of electro mobility

One more comparison Unfortunately, there is a lack of data on others BYD models. In English

I didn’t noticed that the 2017 MY was already listed in the website.

Thanks for sharing.

Another Euro point of view

Its true that Frankfurt show was boring, now we probably should have some empathy for the likes of VW, BMW and Mercedes. I mean they probably know they have little choice but to move towards electric however: 1/ at current EV components prices it is not easy to make a profit selling EVs. 2/ despite some hype around EVs in the media we still cannot say that the general public is overexcited to buy them. 3/ it is still probably not so easy to exactly pinpoint the reason why people buy Tesla for example (as a high end market car… Read more »
