The Renault-Nissan concern presented a new model platform
The Renault-Nissan concern has declassified a new modular platform that will be used for new models of the two brands within the next decade.
The platform is called Common Module Family (CMF) and it is a response to the German MQB. According to the concern representatives, it is a whole philosophy, not just a desire to reduce costs and standardize production.
They are planning that owing to CMF the developing cost of new Renault-Nissan models will drop by a third.
There will be at least 14 new models based on this modular platform by 2020. Moreover, a planned volume of production will be about 1.6 million vehicles.
The main thing distinguishing the French-Japanese platform from the German MBQ is an opportunity for both horizontal and vertical variation of components. Thus, it will be possible to create fundamentally different cars using the CMF – from subcompact cars to sport utility vehicles.
