Renault & Nissan’s products for India will use only 2 platforms. These 2 relatively low-cost platforms that will be underpinning Renault and Nissan’s future small and mid-size car ranges are the CMF-A & CMF-A+ and M0 platforms.
The CMF-A platform already underpins the Renault Kwid and the Datsun redi-GO, while products with the CMF-A+ are yet to roll out from both Renault and Nissan. Both these manufacturers also have the M0 platform that underpins the Duster, Terrano and Lodgy. The upcoming Renault Captur and Nissan Kicks too will be based on the same M0 platform.
