Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi JV is planning to launch 7 new vehicles in Brazil. All of them will be underpinned by the CMF-B platform, which also expected to be shared with the next-gen versions of India-spec Nissan Kicks and Renault Duster.
For the Brazil market, the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi alliance has confirmed that they will add 7 new models which are based on the CMF-B platform. Recently, Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi has introduced its new strategy for its upcoming products. As a part of the future plan, the alliance will introduce a total of 7 new cars in Brazil. All of these new cars will be based on the new CMF-B platform which is jointly developed by the alliance.
Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi is planning to launch 7 new cars based on the CMF-B platform.
It is revealed that the seven new vehicles will be comprised of two sedans, two hatchbacks, and three SUVs. The three SUVs in question are the next-gen iteration of the Kicks, Duster, and Captur. All of which will be powered by HR13 1.3L TCe turbo-petrol engine. The next-gen Renault Captur, in particular, will be developed on the modular CMF-B platform. Sandero, March, Logan and Versa will be the remaining four models that will go on sale in Brazil.
Among these seven models, the alliance only offers the three SUVs: Kicks, Duster and Captur in India. These models are currently underpinned by the B0 platform which has been in use for more than a decade now. However, in the global markets, Renault has introduced the second-gen Duster. Sadly the Indian market continues to get the facelifted version of the first-gen Duster. Talking of the CMF-B underpinned Duster, it is expected to make its way to the Indian market, as Renault will not be bringing the outgoing international-spec car in India.
The CMF-B platform is expected to be used on the next-generation of India-spec Nissan Kicks and Renault Duster.
Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi’s plan for the Brazilian market also suggested that the alliance will extend the use of the CMF-B platform on its international range. India-spec models will also receive the same treatment. Currently, the CMF-A platform is widely used on the alliance’s range of compact cars. Later this year, Nissan will be launching the Magnite sub-four-meter SUV while Renault is preparing for the launch of a sub-4-meter SUV and sub-4-meter sedan. As for the existing Duster and Captur, they are about to get a new 1.3-litre turbocharged petrol engine. This engine is capable of producing a peak power output of 154 Bhp and a maximum torque of 250 Nm. The transmission options for this engine are expected to be either a 6-speed MT and a CVT.
