ⓘ Renault–Nissan Common Module Family

The Common Module Family is a modular architecture concept jointly developed by car manufacturers Nissan and Renault through their Renault–Nissan–Mitsubishi Alliance partnership. The concept covers a wide range of vehicle platforms.


1. Main features

CMF is aimed at reducing manufacturing costs and competing with similar previous concepts as Volkswagen Groups MQB. It consists of five groups of interchangeable, compatible modules: engine bay, cockpit, front underbody, rear underbody and electrical/electronic. According to the companies involved in the development, CMF is not a conventional platform but rather a manufacturing system which can be applied to different vehicles. The actual platforms are built combining a limited set of common modules: a single module can be used for different platforms, covering different classes of vehicles, and so allowing a greater standardisation of components between both Nissan, Renault and Mitsubishi. Renault–Nissan–Mitsubishi announced various variants developed using CMF: CMF-C D for large and mid-sized vehicles; examples are the third-generation Nissan X-Trail and the second-generation Nissan Qashqai, CMF-B for subcompacts/supermini, CMF-A for smaller vehicles, and CMF-EV for alliance wide BEV. The CMF will initially be used in approximately 14 vehicle models worldwide with an estimated production of 1.6 million units annually. The first CMF vehicles were introduced through 2013 with Nissans CMF-C/D models. The first CMF-A car, the Renault Kwid, was launched into the Indian market in September 2015.

It is planned to adopt capital business tie-up in 2016. and to Mitsubishi Motors cars which it put in the Renault-Nissan alliance from 2019.
