Renault-Nissan to launch 12 zero-emission models

Nissan-Renault Seeks to Boost Annual Vehicle Sales to 14 Million

Nissan-Renault Seeks to Boost Annual Vehicle Sales to 14 Million

The plan is very light on actual details of how it plans on achieving this; it says that it plans to release 12 electric cars, and 40 vehicles capable of autonomous driving by 2022 but doesn't go into much detail.

The group believes that this will double synergies between the companies to €10 billion on an annual basis by 2022.

The 14 million figure represents a 40% increase on last year's total of 9.96 million, and exceeds the 2016 results of world's top three automakers; Volkswagen, Toyota Motor and General Motors sold 10.31 million, 10.17 million, 10 million cars, respectively.

The Renault-Nissan alliance is ramping up electric vehicle production, vowing 12 new models by 2022 and to make electric cars 30 percent of its overall production.

BSF jawan martyred in cease fire violation by Pakistan
Pakistan Rangers started unprovoked firing and shelling on Indian positions and civilian areas in Arnia sector around 1 am today. Though no loss of civilian life has been reported, sources said at least one local was injured in the crossfire.

But he said there were no plans to consolidate the alliance into a single company or increase its members' cross-shareholdings, saying the strategic plan would be "respecting the companies' identities".

The Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi alliance is hot on the trails of VW in the electrification race after the French-Japanese coalition revealed a masterplan that shares' the Germans' ambition.

Carlos Ghosn, chairman and chief executive officer of the Alliance, said: "To double synergies, on one side Renault, Nissan and Mitsubishi Motors will accelerate collaboration on common platforms, powertrains and next-generation electric, autonomous and connected technologies".

The alliance sold more cars than any other manufacturer in the first half of 2017 and is looking to ride on its growing reach by expanding electric vehicles into the mass market.

David Thompson makes a prediction about Sadio Mane
Klopp maintained that Mane did not deliberately set out to injure Ederson and felt he should have had one game taken off his ban. Only Sadio was not lucky and Ederson was not lucky.

The alliance forecasts unit sales of 14 million and combined revenues of $240 billion, up more than 30 percent on the $180 billion aggregate revenues achieved in 2016.

"This plan will boost the growth and profitability of our member companies". The alliance has been in place since 1999 yet past year just 2 million vehicles were built on two common platforms.

Equally important, those 12 vehicles will "utilize common platforms and components" across all three brands, meaning significant economies of scale.

The alliance plans to build more than 9 million vehicles on four common platforms by 2022, up from 2 million vehicles on two platforms in 2016.

Prince George returning to school following suspected break
The woman has not been charged but faces further inquiries and a court date in October. Like many four-year-olds across the country, Prince George has just started school.

Under the plan, the alliance will introduce a new family of EV motor and batteries from 2020, shared across the member companies.
