Renault Nissan Strengthen Alliance – Will Converge on EV Powertrain Development

The Renault-Nissan Alliance, under the leadership of Carlos Ghosn, is the number one automotive group in terms of all-electric car sales.

According to the summary for year 2014, The Alliance sold 8,470,610 cars, including 82,602 electric vehicles. A quick conversion give us a number of almost 1% being BEVs, with five years to go to hit the original goal of 10%.

Sales of BEVs for The Alliance went up 24% last year, while market share hit 56% globally out of all BEVs sold.

Nissan LEAF, with 61,507 sales worldwide, is way ahead of the 17,813 sales of Renault’s EVs, although Renault sells mostly in Europe.

The total number of electric cars sold by the Renault-Nissan Alliance since December 2010 through the end of 2014 is 217,365.

“The Alliance has sold a cumulative 217,365 electric vehicles worldwide since December 2010, when Nissan LEAF – the first mass-marketed Alliance EV – went on sale. The top markets for Nissan LEAF are the United States with 72,322 vehicles sold since its launch, Japan with 48,641 sales and Europe with 33,481 sales. Meanwhile, Renault has sold a cumulative 56,499 electric vehicles worldwide since its first EV, the Kangoo Z.E., went on sale in October 2011.

The Alliance sells about one out of two electric vehicles worldwide, including Twizy, Renault’s two-seater urban commuter vehicle and the Nissan e-NV200 van on sale in Europe and Japan since 2014.”

With all the competitors bringing BEVs to market make me wonder how long Nissan will dominate the BEV market.

What competitors? So far, no competitors with nationally available BEV other than BMW i3 and Tesla Model S. Otherwise, lots of compliance vehicles and a concept car someday.

How little your world must be if it only consists of one country. 🙂

Some places should have some mandatory abroad duties to learn about what’s outside 😉

See my comment below. A giant will soon enter the space accorsing to reliable, well-connected sources (FT, WSJ…)

Well, a new challenger is soon here in EVs that could challenge both Nissan-Renault and Tesla etc.:

“Apple Gears Up to Challenge Tesla in Electric Cars
IPhone Maker Has 100s Working on Design of a Minivan Like Vehicle”

I look at such announcements the same way I look at rumors or promises from established car companies about products that won’t arrive for several years: I hope it results in a great product and more competition in the car industry, but I won’t get excited until it’s on the market and I can see what is and isn’t in the car, where it will be sold, how much it will cost to buy and operate, etc.

Congrats to Ghosn and his people for making the most cars. Of course, counting 2 separate companies helps increase the odds of you winning.

I wonder what we have to do to get him feeling frisky, and come out with a bigger electric than the leaf, or at least one with a bigger battery… I was seriously considering the leaf myself years ago, but the small battery, and nondescript warranty of it made me choose elsewhere.

Incorrect caption, should be “Nissan CEO Ghosn in half a Nissan Leaf”….

Just 0.98% of Renault-Nissan Alliance vehicle sales in 2014 were PEVs.
(82,602 electric vehicles of 8,470,610 cars)

However, 38% of all PEVs sold by the alliance were sold in 2014; showing how strong growth has been.
(82,602 of 217,365 from December 2010 through the end of 2014) 100,000+ PEVs sold in 2015?

Great, but they need to step up the game:
-Provide an option for a larger battery in the Leaf & eNV-200.
-Build an Infiniti EV
-Build another EV body style available in the USA . . . or at least bring over the ZOE.
-Release the eNV-200 in the USA.
-Put a CCS port on your cars in addition to Chademo.
-Build a battery thermal management system (both heating and cooling)

I have to admit that more than half are impressive numbers but at the same time it was also the first real usable commercial electric car on the market that was possible to buy for the normal consumer.
Nissan has had a future vision and it should be rewarded.
That being said, I have personal difficulties with their design, and there have been no significant improvements in the range and utilization of space in the car.
Please build in wheel motor in all 4 wheels and use the engine room in the front with more battery capacity, if you still what to keep the same platform of the car.

Congratulations to Nissan and Renault… Really enjoy our Leaf. Might buy another since everyone in the family would
rather drive it. Looking forward to increased battery densities and more Eco modes. (User settable top speed for teen drivers or hypermilers.) Really hope Alliance is able to keep adding electric power train as option in more designs. Loved Denki Cube… Or Bladeglider… Keep em coming! Here’s to the next quarter million cars and to helping develop the charger networks we all need.

Volkswagen group is catching up quickly. Especially in Europe.

15.000 Leaf 2014 in Europa, 2300 e-NV200.
Volkswagen e-Golf 2.800 and e-Up 5.900.
Next step is VW have not enough battery production to catch up.

careful with figures…
Nissan LEAF, with 61,507 sales worldwide, is way ahead of the 17,813 sales of Renault’s EVs, although Renault sells mostly in Europe.

17,813 is the Renault sales in EUROPE.
total RENAULT should be around 18,500 units WORLDWIDE.
