Renault unveiled the K-ZE electric crossover at the Shanghai auto show this month.
Renault, Nissan open Shanghai lab to advance mobility, EV efforts
Automotive News China | 2019/4/30

Renault and Nissan have set up an innovation lab in Shanghai to conduct r&d on autonomous driving, connected cars and electric vehicles. 

The Alliance Innovation Lab Shanghai will be equally owned by Renault and Nissan. 

Technologies developed by the lab will be adopted for Renault and Nissan vehicles sold in and outside China, Renault said.

The lab, launched this month, is the second joint automotive project Renault and Nissan have jointly launched in China in the past three years. 

In 2017, the French-Japanese alliance formed an engineering joint venture, eGT New Energy Automotive Co., with local partner Dongfeng Motor Group in the central China city of Shiyan. 

The eGT venture is a 50-25-25 partnership among Dongfeng, Renault and Nissan. It is responsible for designing a new EV based off the Renault Kwid crossover¡¯s platform.

The electric crossover was unveiled as the Renault K-ZE at the Shanghai auto show this month. 

The Renault K-ZE will be produced at Dongfeng¡¯s plant in Shiyan, which can build up to 120,000 vehicles a year. It is scheduled to go on sale in the second half of the year, according to Renault.
