Partnerships building China mobility solutions
Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi announces its partnership with DiDi Auto Alliance (the D-Alliance).
The DiDi Auto Alliance is a ride-sharing alliance initiated by DiDi that specialises in smart mobility. By promoting the new energy automotive industry with partners, it aims to unite all members to transform the business model of the automotive industry.
Ogi Redzic, senior vice president of connected vehicles and mobility services for Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi said, ‘We share a common vision with DiDi in our pursuit of clean, safe mobility for all. China is a key market for Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi and we plan to work in close partnership with market leaders like DiDi to shape the future of smart mobility in China.’
Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi signed a memorandum of understanding with DiDi in February to explore the possibility of future business cooperation on a new electric vehicle car-sharing program in the People’s Republic of China. The memorandum of understanding signed with DiDi is in line with the exploration of new mobility services at the Alliance, including the launch of robo-vehicle ride-hailing services, as part of the Alliance 2022 strategic midterm plan launched last year by Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi.
The Alliance is accelerating convergence and synergy initiatives in a range of new automotive technologies. By the end of its strategic plan, the Alliance will launch 12 pure electric models worldwide, while also bringing to market 40 vehicles worldwide with autonomous drive technology and developing robo-vehicle ride-hailing services.
